We just returned from a two week honeymoon in Costa Rica. We stayed at the treehouses for 4 days. From the moment our driver picked us up in Playa Flamingo, it was spectacular! Mark, one of the hosts from the treehouses, arranged a private driver named Oscar to take us boh ways. It was like having a private tour guide. He knew all the right stops, including food, tree full of monkeys, and picture perfect spots along the way.
Once we arrived at the treehouses, we were in awe. Each treehouse is private, clean and built to bring he outdoors in. This is a bird lovers paradise...and you'll become one if not already. Each morning they deliver coffee to your treehouse deck and bananas for the birds to eat. Breakfast at the rancho was a surprise treat everyday from individual huevos to coconut pineapple French toast with chocolate sauce always accompanied with yummy local fruit. One night, we had pizza delivered to the treehouse by ATV. Only in Costa Rica!
On the property there is a lot of wildlife. In addition to the birds, we saw a couple of sloths, many frogs and lizards. The night watchman gives tours...he can find many things the average joe would never see!
Mark also arranged two tours for us. The rafting trip was the highlight of the entire vacation! The tour picked us up right at the treehouse gate. The guides were funny, spoke English and knew the river well. It was class 3&4 and did not disappoint. The 2nd trip was to the hot springs at Tabacon. Mark also arranged for transportation to/from the hot springs. The pools were amazing...beautiful and clean. Dinner was included and afterwards we were able to go back in the pools.
All in all, this is a must stop on any Costa Rican vacation! Book early, as there are only a few treehouses. Even if it's only a couple days. We'll be back for sure!
