We stayed at Rio Perdido this past five days and can only say it was excellent and perfect for our first stay while in the country for three weeks. The rooms are nice little cabins with everything you would need.....TV, frig with mini bar, well appointed bathroom, sitting area in room and back porch. Great view of the jungle with the sounds of parrots and howler monkeys in the river below.
The food was alway great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On our last evening, we had a private romantic dinner on the platform overlooking the canyon and river as the sun set. If you can book this private experience it is a must! You feel so pampered and the rate was worth every penny for a complete meal bottle..your choice of wine, desert and coffee included. First class treatment.....ask for Elroy...he will be your captain for the evening with service that will amaze you!
Don't miss the canyon zip line adventure right there at the resort. The best we have done in any country. More just than a zip line it's outstanding. The views below are very special and the guides are the best with safety and fun as their top priority.
Visiting the thermal river just steps from your room in the jungle every day is a must. Relaxing and sitting in the shade of the trees ...get there before this hidden jewel gets really busy as we expect will be the case as this resort gets better known.
Can't say enough about the resort, the staff and overall experience was awesome! Affordable for now.....but we expect rates to climb as more people learn about this unforgettable resort.
