We stumbled on La Garza purely by accident and it proved to be one of the highlights of our Costa Rican trip. The grounds are sprawling and absolutely beautiful. From the hanging bridge to get to the main buildings, to the fantastic jungle surrounding your cabana while gazing at the river from the hammock on the back patio.
The staff is EXTREMELY friendly and more than accommodating. One of the owners helped us throughout our stay and was one of the friendliest Costa Ricans I have had a chance to meet. There is wifi at the main building and it seems in the rooms. There are 6 cabana's, each with two rooms. It is very private and a true Costa Rican experience. Its comfortable, clean, and very relaxing. The food is good Costa Rican grub, though pretty standard. Its rustic vibe adds nothing but charm. The owners' son was feeding the birds outside the dining patio some fresh fruit, which resulted in a dazzling display of some of the most gorgeous birds the rainforest has to offer.
If you're looking for a sleek American resort this is not it. But if you want to see Costa Rica at its finest, come here. You will certainly not regret it!
