I recently stayed at Canas Castilla and was not disappointed, the property is owned by Swiss couple Agi und Guido who are very nice people, Canas Castilla is basically a farm that Agi and Guido have built bungalows on, there are walks around the property that they have been marked out for degree of difficulty, a map of the walks...

What a unique and wonderful place to stay. Our bungalow was large, very clean, and quiet (except for the howler monkeys in the morning which is an amazing thing to wake up to!) I highly recommend the large and delicious breakfast and exploring the trails on the property. When we hiked along the river, we not only saw howler monkeys... More

Wow, this was our stay before we headed to Nicaragua with a guide arranged by Canas Castilla. The owners are so welcoming and even dropped us off at the border to meet our guide. We loved the common area. Our cabin was clean, comfortable and located in the middle of the jungle - literally. I saw a baby hummingbird at... More

This was our first intro to Costa Rica, staying at this lovely little lodge. The rooms, service and meals are hard to beat, we could not have made a better choice. There are trails on the property where you can see howler monkeys and it was really great to be surrounded by nature. The rooms are meticulous. The breakfasts and... More

This is a must visit hotel, even if you are not bird watchers. The cabins are excellent, clean, comfortable and located alongside the river. The meals were good , especially pizza night with a selection of flavours coming until we just couldn't eat any more. The trails were not easy in November after the rains but enjoyable all the same.The... More

My wife and I stayed here on two occasions during the Costa Rican 'dry season.' The cabins are super comfortable and can come with refrigeration and cooking gear, potentially saving money. The owner Agi is very, very nice, and a great naturalist- pointing out wildlife and giving good tips on where to visit in the area. The cooking, as others... More

The Finca is situated right by a river and provides lots of opportunities to see all kinds of wildlife. The rooms provide space for up to four people each, are well maintained. Breakfast and the optional dinner are prepared by the owners themselves and are always excellent. There is a fixed meal for dinner, but special wishes will always be... More

We booked 1 night to rest from our Nicaragua / Costa Rica border crosssing and to take the next day flight back home from Liberia. We arrived late in the afternoon, during the rainy season, and starving. We were used to the wedding meals we had in Nicaragua at Rancho Santana, a 5 stars resort, the week before. Agi cooked...

We spent three nights at Canas Castilla and rate this place highly. We felt very welcome by the owners, who did everything to make us comfortable. We stayed there in absolute low and rainy season, still we could do the recommended hikes on the property, spend time in amazing Bahia Salinas and relax. The Swiss owners have emigrated to this...

These very nice Swiss owners have a large finca close to the border and La Cruz. Cabanas are comfortable, although with some insects esp at evenings. At the finca, they created three beautifull trails, we did all of them at least two times! Nice views, monkey's to welcome you in the morning. We stayed a week, felt like home.
