This was our final destination and I have to admit it was very rustic but what a treat! We stayed 2 nights. The owner was very accommodating, and breakfast was great. We ate dinner there on our 2nd night and it was delicious. We saw tucans from our cabin and a sloth came down the tree 10 feet from our... More

The Casa Rio Blanco experience was fantasic for our family. Hosts, Herbie and Annette, have created an incredibly beautiful garden estate. Their cliff side cabins are surrounded by lush, showy gardens filled with sculptures, waterfall and pools. Each of the cabins look down to the dramatic Rio Blanco River, and are clean, eco-style and comfortable. I had never slept in... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 3 nights, we had a clean room and a great view at our cabin and we welcomed by the friendly hosts. We had a great time at tortuguero with the tip they gave us to ride with castor. When all other guided boats were going forward he stopped and pointed us wildlife all others... More

Detailed decoration. The place is surrounded by rivers and creeks. The nature absorbes you on the night . Really an eco lodge . Warm customer service. Clean rooms. The food is just heavenly. Definitely recommended.

We stayed at the Casa Rio Blanco Eco-Lodge B&B March 2015. We reserved two cabins for two nights via email for our party of six. The property was described as rustic cabinas in the mountains overlooking the river. We were greeted by a locked gate at around 4pm and a rude woman who runs the place. She crossed the line... More

We stayed at Casa Rio Blanco for 3 nights. The room/cabin was basic, but clean. We had a king size bed! Unfortunately, it rained the whole time we were there. Annette helped us choose a spot to hike (we avoided the rain for 2 hours) and arranged for us to go on the Zipline using her discount. The zipline was... More

We spent one night here as a stopping point between a traverse from Montezuma and Tortuguero (It's a long journey) and we had a comfortable stay. It is situated on the river from which it takes its name and it does mean that it isn't the quietest place you'll ever stay (the river rushes past 24/7) but you do quickly... More

I followed the instructions on this lodge's website in order to travel there from San Jose by coach: they worked perfectly. For the next day the lodge owner arranged a taxi to take me back to the tram in the nearby forest preserve, and I was able to flag down a coach from there back to San Jose. The afternoon... More

This place is far from everything and you don't even have the joy of being close to nature. There is nothing around it. In one side you have the river (no direct access from the property) and in the other side there is an unpaved road in really bad shape that goes through a small neighborhood. Our cabin was very...
