Went with a friend in March 2012 on our 3rd vaca to CR and spent 2 nights. We had our complete itineray planned and only at the last minute did we hear of Rio Celeste. We made last minute changes and was unable to get reservations at the places that seem to advertise more. Finally stumbled upon this place on line & was able to book with Mario by e-mail. It is everything the reviews say, rustic, peaceful, good food & most of all kind staff who love their world and and are very serious about catering to and pleasing their guests. Convenient to Rio Celeste but a rugged bumpy drive and a pretty strenguous hike which is more than worth it if you are physically up to it. Beautiful countryside for horseback ride. Mario schedules everything and just tells you what time to be ready. We have spent a total of 6 weeks in CR and stayed at around a dozen "specialty type lodging". Mario's place is truly one of the most memorable settings & his sweetness as a host definitely ranks at the top. We would definitely go back!
