We arrived to Agua Vista after a long drive and found pure heaven: parrots, waterfalls with pristine swimming pools a 5-minute hike away, howler monkeys, hummingbirds, and a brimming lemon tree. The houses are perfect: clean, very attractively constructed and decorated, and equipped with everything we needed. The hosts, Alex and Khalida, made us feel so welcome, and gave us the scoop on the best places to eat, swim, and hike. We spent 8 days in Costa Rica, unfortunately only 4 at Agua Vista. If I go back, I'm going straight to Agua Vista for my whole trip.
