Business partners Gene and Larry have created a fine experience on the outskirts of La Fortuna at the Palo Verde Resort. What an INCREDIBLE view of the volcano! We stayed in cabinas #5 & 6. You can lay in your bed in your cabina and watch the volcano spew rocks nightly. The vegetation and bird life at this resort are phenomenal including humming birds that will "say hello" each morning on your patio as you're drinking your complimentary "Cafe Britt" coffee. Our visit was in mid-November at the end of the rainy season - we had clear days where we saw the cone of the Volcano then had a welcomed rain each afternoon around 4:30 that lasted about an hour. There are 9 cabinas at the Palo Verde, all have standard modern, CLEAN conveniences and furnishing you would expect in the States. Johan was our "go-to" guy who catered to any need that arose. There are a couple of nearby resorts within walking distance where you can enjoy fantastic fare for a great price. We also met the owners of Pure Trek Canyoning (next door to Palo Verde) who were very friendly and offer a full array of adventures in the surrounding area. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, no-hassle, laid back stay, then Palo Verde is your place!
