This was my first trip to Costa Rica and Bella Vista made it an amazing trip! Bert is a truly amazing host and chef. Every meal was delicious and fresh. The rustic feel and the interaction with other guests makes this place special. At the Lodge you get great views, breezes, sunsets, and right down the mountain you can hit the beach and bars. The horseback ride on my last day really rounded out my stay. I can't wait to go back!
