My girlfriend and I have just returned from an amazing trip to Costa Rica and the Hidden Canopies really was the highlight! From the moment we arrived we realised that two nights just wasn't going to be enough! We stayed in the Rising Sun treehouse which was stunning! A very secluded and spacious room set within the Cloud Forest itself which provided an even more perfect setting than we imagined.
Jenn, the owner, was the perfect host. The staff there couldn't do enough for us and the sunset tea really was quite wonderful and unique, offering fantastic views of both the Cloud Forest and the Gulf of Nicoya in the distance.
A stay here wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Argentinian Cafe where you can buy the most delicious truffles and take a chocolate tour with 'Bob'.
On our second and final night, Jen surprised us and had worked out how we could rearrange our plans and stay another night! We were absolutely overwhelmed and of course decided to stay. We were lucky enough to spend the third night in the Cloud Room, in the main house which again had wonderful views and was also very spacious and luxurious.
If you love cats and dogs, then this is definitely the place for you! The two dogs, Bonita and Gazu, will take you on a trail through the Cloud Forest, but be careful not to follow their own short cuts like we did! As for Pumpkin, Steven and Poppy the cats, well what can we say... they're all adorable!!
We both felt very fortunate to have been able to stay here and meet Jenn who has become a good friend, and who really is one of the most inspirational people we have ever met. We both wish her well in her continued vision of the Hidden Canopies.
If you are planning a trip Costa Rica and would like an unforgettable experience, then the Hidden Canopy is not to be missed.
A big thank you to Jenn, Gary, Natalia, Gio, Olman, Koky and the all of the staff for an unforgettable stay!!
