Just returned from this little slice of heaven. David and Cindy were gracious hosts. What they have carved out is a little slice of heaven in Costa Rica. They have made wonderful floral gardens with many native plants which are beautiful,; the one drawback is ... There is a lot of walking up and down hills. Mostly rock covered hills... More

I was here for a medium sized business dinner. Ambience is good. The views are impressive. Even thou there is a roof, most of the seats are in the open. You can watch what I think is an artificial waterfall from the restaurant, that is located on top of the mountain. The Bar is "Self serve", with a nice variety... More

Standing atop the mountain you look... More

Located on a hilltop, the area is beautifully landscaped with plants, flowers and picturesque waterfalls. After walking through the gardens we were escorted by our gracious hosts David and Cindy for our meal-a delicious 4 course dinner with an open bar. Another highlight was the views and sunset over the mountains as we ate dinner. Very highly recommend this!!

Adventure Dining was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. As you enter the property, you see the beautiful landscape, but until you start walking around, you realize that you will need hours to truly enjoy the spectacular scenery. From the Macaws flying overhead to the amazing waterfalls, we all agreed that it is a special place on this... More
