Highly recommend a tour (we did a hiking tour). You don't have to tour to see wildlife here but you'll see more and know where to look later when on your own. Staff were very helpful and spoke enough English. Because of the second bed in the room we had plenty of space. Ceiling fan and open windows were adequate... More

My friend and I recently stayed at Hacienda Baru for 3 days. I could easily have stayed here for at least a week as this was one of my favorite places during our trip. Not only was our cabin very comfortable (it has 2 rooms equipped with a fridge and cofffeemaker in addition to a stove), the trails and grounds... More

First of all , full disclosure, this fantastic resort is operated by my wife's cousin and her husband, neither of whom she had met until our trip to Costa Rica. This former ranch has been allowed to revert back to its natural state and is now a top notch tourist destination. They have also been instrumental in getting the government... More

This is an excellent place for people wanting to see birds and animals and be in a comfortable, well designed setting. We saw a three toed sloth, close enough to watch it reach (slowly) for food, saw enormous iguanas on the path to the restaurant, had monkeys play on our roof and saw many wonderful and exotic birds. In addition... More

Stayed for 3 days in Sept 2013 and have no negatives to talk about. Comfortable, clean room (near the pool), good food at the restaurant, excellent trail system. We didn't hire any of the guides, as wildlife photographers we have spent a good deal of time in Costa Rica. Lots of wildlife, Peccary on the trail, Humpback Whales literally just... More

This was one of the highlight of my trip, a grandiose property right on the ocean, rain forest, mangrove, beach and canopy forest in one place !!! The hotel is very eco-friendly and fun, the location is wonderful...in half a day we stay there we saw : macaws, toucans, monkeys, lots of monkeys, basilisks, coatis, fresh water box-turtle (i think)...

we "just" did the walking without guide tour through the wonderful grounds of Hacienda Baru. We started with the orchid garden where we were already greeted by numerous monkeys !!! then had a look at the butterfly garden...soooooooo beautiful and you can take endless close ups on them. After that we explored all these wonderful trails like : Pizote, Lookout,... More

On our last day in Costa Rica I wanted to experience and support a private Eco-Lodge since we were in the vicinity of Dominical, decided to book a room at Hacienda Baru. I also read about the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor straddles and connects some of the most biodiverse territory in all of Costa Rica and since we... More

Really nice and quiet place. It is possible to see lot of animals and nature almost without tourists. The path for the excursion is easy and well explained. It gets you trough the forest up to the see in a awesome desert beach. The restaurant is also good.

We came here for the zip lining with our two sons (3 and 5). They both loved it, so did my wife and I. Nice activity if you need a break from the sun and beach. On the hike up to the lines, the guides were really nice and made sure our kids got a few glimpses of sloths, bats,... More
