It was our first time to Costa Rica and someone had recommended spending time up in the rainforest instead of the beaches. What a surprise to find such a luxury resort at the foot of an active volcano. The resort has superb dining experiences including dining in a small hut tucked away in the middle of he rain forest with our own chefs preparing a five course dinner while we watched. The hotel also has a surreal spa which takes advantage of the many hot springs which are warmed by the core of the volcano, They even have a spiritual experience with their local Shama. The trekking around the resort is simply breath taking. Having stayed in tropical resorts on many occasions I challenge anyone to recommend a resort of this calibre in a similar environment. We will be back.
