Heliconia Island is one of the nicest gardens in Costa Rica. And for a good price you can sleep there aswell, including a good normal breakfast. You can also see a lot of birds and some other animals like monkeys, squirrels, etc.. Henk and Carolien, the owners, are not only very friendly, but also very helpfull with information about things... More

Gardens are small, beautiful and well maintained, with plenty of great birds. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and it helps it you like dogs, because they have several that will greet you noisily on arrival! Don't stay here for more that one night if you don't have your own transport as there is little to do, breakfast is minimal... More

Great looking garden. Full of plants and animals and their own dogs (not to forget tame squirrel Sjakie) . Thanks Henk & Carolien for best care and pointing out your private wildlife during our short stay. Rooms are ok and ours had the best rainforest view. Great to hear the birds while your in bed. If you're a rainforest addict,... More

The gardens are nice but nothing exceptional compared to other gardens we visited in the area. We actually stayed at a home which had just as good a garden, so we were a bit disappointed to have made the trip to Heliconia which is "arguably" the nicest garden in the area (that is from Lonely Planet). It is arguable. I... More

Lets start with the good things that we remember of our stay here. The garden is beautiful. When you enter the property by crossing the bridge, you feel like you walk in to paradise. Although it is a maintained garden and not 'wild nature', many animals can be found here. We were happy to see a sloth, hummingbird's nests, squirrels,... More

We stayed here for three nights. The place is wonderful. Beautiful garden and the tour by Caroline is a must when you are in Sarapiqui. Lots of beautiful birds and animals. Several sloths on the property and at night with a tourch we saw two kinds of opossum and a kinkajou. Armadillos are common, but we missed them. The guesthouse... More

The rooms are comfortable, the proprietors are friendly---what really recommends this place, however, is the stunning combination of avian and plant life. You will encounter a plethora of birds here especially in the morning when the feeders have fresh fruit. The garden grounds are fantastic and very welcoming for a nice stroll. Also, you might encounter a sloth or two;... More

The property used to be a botanical garden, so the large variety of plants attracts a large variety of birds. We saw several species here that we did not see anywhere else. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, this is a great place for bird photography, especially in the morning when birds gather around the feeders. I would recommend staying here... More
