“Excellent all around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We had a short sojourn at Cabinas Piuri during February 2012. Our accommodation was a large room (2 large beds (one a King size), eating/sitting area) with a private bath. Spacious and airy and in the clouds. There were a couple other accommodations in the same building, all in a row, all with outside entrances, all with good windows. We ate delicoius meals prepared by the husband/wife owners, who are gracious, helpful and knowledgeable. As in so many places this far off the mainstream tourist routes, a bit of Spanish is helpful.
We hiked (most of it just a walk, really) to the beautiful waterfall in the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the entrance for which is just a couple of minutes down the road.
The locally famous Rio Celeste, its truly-blue water, is just down the hill from the cabins, and several lovely pools have been created in the along the way.
We're an older couple, both in our 60s, and found the Cabinas Piuri to be a wonderful place to do some "mild exploring". We'd go back, for sure.

My girlfriend and I spent two nights in these wonderful cabinas.

Not only is it a great place to be if you want to leave early to visit Tenorio National Park, but it is awesome in its own to relax and enjoy the Rio Celeste.

The river is flowing right behind the cabinas. After only a minute's walk, you can enjoy swimming in the ice-cold and perfectly blue water (great to wake up in the morning).

The cabinas themselves are very spacious and extremely clean. It was also very quiet, which was great to catch some sleep.

The hosts were some of the greatest and kindest people we met in Costa Rica. They cooked incredibly well (do not miss that!). It is not a light thing to say, but the best casado I ate during my 28 days-trip (which makes at least 40 casados) was there. I really wish I could go back !

Also, the hosts took the time to talk to us (even if my spanish was quite primitive) and taught us a good few words (Pepino!!!) and in turn, we taught them a few words in French (Concombre!). They were very kind and really made an effort to be great hosts.

I hope I'll be able to go back one day, as this was undoubtedly among the two best cabinas we stayed in while in Costa Rica.

We have found this place through Lonely planet and decided to give it a try. We were welcomed by a very nice costarican family and guided to our room. The rooms are very big, with two beds inside, one queen size and one king size. Under the cabinas (1 min walk) is the most beautiful river I have seen, THE RIO CELESTE, with its milky blue color. The family also made 3 small natural pools were you can have a dip if you do not feel comfortable to jump into the river itself. We did both. We trully loved it. The family also invites you for a very nice traditional dinner (very tasty) and the same for breakfast. We paid almost nothing for the service we got.
