We love the kind service the owners gave us. I slept so good after a long drive there. We stay short because we had to go next morning to pick up a friend at the border with Nicaragua but from there you could visit Bahía Salinas and go hikking around. The cabins are simple but good, they all have a... More

Beautiful rural lodge near La Cruz and the border with Nicaragua. Ideal place for horseback riding in the beautiful surroundings or just for a walk in nature. Very welcoming owners with great knowledge of the area. Excellent breakfast and dinner at an attractive price. Not to be missed !!!!

This Finca is a rare find. The location is beautiful with so many birds and animals to see and hear in the grounds. The river bank is a lovely place to sit and relax and watch the wildlife including the crocodile! The food is homemade by Agi and delicious. We met some of the other lovely guests while we were...

Where to begin. Agi and guido are the sweetest. They both are so kind and attentive, agi is an amazing cook and they are so generous with their breakfast and dinners. The cabins have their own seating areas with hammocks. You are surrounded by peaceful nature and hilarious monkeys and sleepy sloths and other amazing wild life. We cannot wait... More

It was our Highlight in Costa Rica, After 4 weeks in that nice country. We have seen many animals, but at the finca we have seen so many as no where else. Even in the national parks are not so many as at that farm. Normally we would stay just a day ending up with 3 nights. Good food as... More

Stay here. You won't be disappointed. Our group of four stayed at Finca Canas Castilla for four nights out of a ten day trip. Agi, the owner, was helpful right from the start with my booking. We booked two adjacent bungalows, one complete with a kitchenette with a stove, an oven, a mini fridge, dishes and pots and pans, a... More

This family run lodge is located on the Sapoa River, about 6 Km north of La Cruz, Guanacaste. They have about 6 casitas along the river, surrounded by forest and lush tropical plantings. Each casita has two separate suites, which can sleep up to four people. The rooms are clean and brightly decorated and fan cooled. I think AC was... More

What a find! Fincas Canas Castilla (FCC) manages to get all the good about staying in nature with none of the bad. FCC is easy to get to. It's only a few minutes off the main highway with a sign marked at the turnoff. There's minimal driving on a maintained gravel road to reach your location. The hosts are very... More

Visited the hotel to see the two toed sloths! :-) We were able to see a baby and an adult one! Didn't stay overnight but the place looked very nice and quiet! And the owner, a Swiss woman, is really friendly!

We wanted a place for a night, to attend a MTB event on the coast. Although approx 23km away from where we needed to be, the drive was worth it. Spacious cabin, excellent welcome by the Swiss owners, good dinner and breakfast. My wife was on a medical diet, but they went out of their way to accommodate her requests.... More
