We spent four nights there. It is a about 15km south of La Fortuna. The property is 2.5km drive from the main road Hwy 702. We tried to reach there on a Hyundai Sedan and had a lot of trouble driving on the very bumpy stone road. Eventually, we asked the car rental company in San Jose to replace our... More

This place is truly outstanding. Stunning setting and grounds. Fantastic food, very friendly and accommodating staff. Tons of amazing birds, we even saw a sloth in a tree by the restaurant. About 25 minute drive to La Fortuna. The dirt section of the road to the hotel isn't that long and not that bad. My family of four very much... More

This beautiful place is off the beaten track which is what makes it special. Situated on the edge of the rainforest, it is hidden away but has very personable service and reasonable and delicious food. The pool was refreshing - all natural springs. A hot tub would help ease sore muscles from doing all the activities in the area (zip... More

This place is for those who are looking to get away from everything and everyone. It takes about a 2:45 hour drive from San Jose, beautiful drive, can be frustrating because of lack of signs once you get to San Ramon, we had to ask people plenty of times. There is a 2km rock road to get to Chachahua, not... More

Above all else, a 4x4 vehicle helps. The road leading to this majestic hacienda is not paved. Separate bungalows, front porches with hammocks, rainbow eucalyptus trees on site. Hiking trails are also on site. Staff was friendly and helpful. They were full of recommendations on stuff to do in the surrounding area. Love love love this place!

The good: The rainforest hotel is absolutely gorgeous, and a true rainforest experience. The people who run it are incredibly helpful and kind, and Miguel was not only flexible about letting us change our dates, but also helped us structure and book activities for our whole stay in La Fortuna, after we woefully underplanned. He had great advice for what... More

This place is amazing! You feel like you are part of the countryside. The hiking paths are beautiful. The beds are comfortable and you sleep like a baby with the sounds of the rainforest in the background. I would definitely stay here again.

If you want to feel close to nature and close to town....this is the place! We saw howler Monkeys, beautiful flowers, incredible scenery, and great staff. We loved the feeling of being on a safari with a soft bed. Do not let the road in scare you. Make sure you copy the map on the website. Take the second entrance... More

So, so quiet! Felt like I was alone in the jungle with only the howler monkeys to wake me up in the morning. Definitely ask them to take you on the night tour too! The trails aren't obvious but ask and they will show you. Wish I'd stayed longer. The downside is that the road is super bumpy to get... More
