Let's be real — this is some very basic lodging provided by some very sweet people for a very low price in a very out-of-the-way place. I paid $12 for one in a room with a double bed and a bunk bed that could have slept four. I happened to arrive on a night when Doña Casta, the lady of... More

Very eco lodge....modern, clean, airy......every room has a wonderful view of the gardens, and the northern volcano, and the rainforest hillside, and the sunset......fantastic bird sightings. Excellent three meals of innovative food. They are very accommodating of special dietary needs..... And the critters in the forest: snakes, frogs, butterflies, monkeys.....exciting!!!,

He showed us the beautiful Rio Celeste behind his Casa and also took us to milk cows based on my request in the early... More
