I am a group tour guide who started my business because I fell in love with Costa Rica. After traveling to fourteen countries, I found my sweet spot and started to take groups over to show everyone what a truly unique and amazing country it is. La Fortuna has always been such an amazing spot for me. Where else can... More

If you love the outdoors and want your own space away from the crowds, yet near Volcano Arenal, then this is the place for you. Located on several acres (I don't know exactly how many) deep into the rainforest, there are enough hiking trails without ever leaving this ecolodge, not to mention the great view of volcano Arenal from the...

Stayed at this hotel for two nights in December and it was certainly a stay to remember. I am really torn about this one… First off you should know this hotel is for the adventurous. If you want to see the real Costa Rica and be right there in the rain forest, see unspoiled aspect of Costa Rica then this... More

I write this review with mixed feelings. Stayed at the lodge recently with family. Johnathan (owner) and staff are very personable. BUT this lodge needs a lot of work before it can be called acceptable. Location is good but the property is missing some very basic essentials (cleanliness, clean sheets, clean sofas and cushions to name a few!). Nature is... More

Here was a massive termite attack which ocurred first night, never before have I seen it as strong and quick... as soon as we knew we came and eliminated them... unfair to blame us ...we are in the jungle , rainforest...sorry but not our fault!

I came with five couples for a trip, and we stayed here, this place was so amazing, we all left there saying it was the best trip ever!!! The staff at the Lodge was so helpful from our daily breakfast with Yasmina, and Manuel, and a Tour of the grounds with another staff member, and the Pig roast that they... More

Our three-generation family of eight was pretty tired out by the time we reached the Princesa, having jumped in our rental cars after landing in San Jose and driving straight through. What a treat it was to arrive at such a dazzlingly beautiful spot and to be treated so nicely. Manuel and Yasmina made sure we were comfortable and served... More

We loved this place! Staying here was a true high-light of a very well-highlit trip to Costa Rica my husband, my 7 year old daughter, and I took in June. This place is really special. The lodge itself is really nice- the deck is huge and comfortable with lots of lounges to take in the wide open view over the... More

To be fair, my family and I were not prepared for just how Eco this ecolodge is. Bizarrely, there was no one around when we arrived, in the swelter of late afternoon, after a really rough ride up to the lodge. The pool was empty, the veranda was nice enough but would feel too crowded with more than a couple... More
