We loved this place because of very helpful owner and calm atmosphere. He arranged shuttles and taxis - it is only 10km from the entrance to the park and a mass of activities. Don’t expect too much sleep if it’s windy in the tent house! Excellent breakfast. Downer was the need to taxi to get to good walks or hikes and a minimally equipped kitchen but we got by fine. Curabande was small and felt safe. Like so many villages in Costa Rica there is education needed on single use plastics and their disposal. BUT would defo recommend this as a base for Rincon de la Vieja.
Very nice garden and well-maintained campsite. Good and warm showers and clean toilets. A small camp kitchen is present and there’s possibility to have breakfast served. The friendly owner Gerard provides a brief explanation to every visitor on the nearby national park and has some other tips regarding interesting sites in the neighbourhood.
We love it! The camping area was very clean and confortable,we woke up with the sing of birds :) they have kitchen if you like to Cook and Gerard was an amazing host, gave us a lot information... 5 min walking from the campground it is a very beautiful river, ask him! Gracias don Gerard. Gladys y Jairo
El sol verde is a lovely and quiet place to stay. The owner, Gerard, created a very beautiful place where you immediately feel at ease when you arrive. He is very kind and he can explain you everything about the area and the country. He built these wooden tent houses and they are wonderful to sleep in; very cozy and spacious with very comfortable matresses. He also offers cabinas and camping space. His place is located in Curubandé which is a sweet, little village. Here you will find a few supermarkts and sodas/restaurants and it's about 15 minutes driving to the national park Rincón de la Vieja and 15 minutes driving to Liberia. Near to Gerard's place there is also a very beautiful river where you can swim, picknick and relax. We definitely would recommend this place. Well priced, fantastic owner and perfect spot!…
El Sol Verde is located in Curubunde, a small town near Liberia and Rincon de la Vieja. Our family of 4 stayed in the quadruple room for 3 nights. We really enjoyed the serene and pure environment. Gerard is a wonderful person and provided us all the information needed to enjoy the area. The location is amazing with the Rio Colorado within walking distance with the beautiful hanging bridge! We visited Rincon de la Vieja national park and the Adventure tour by Hacienda Guachepelin. Accommodations were sufficient for us, wifi is spotty unless you are in the breakfast area. Breakfast was fresh and Gerard prepared lunch-to-go when we visited National park. We ate at the Camino El Cerro in town which had amazing food! Great way to experience Costa Rica. Highly recommend the place!
