Arrived at the hotel, put valuables in the safe, went to dinner, came back and everything had been stolen. The safe was forced open with perhaps a crowbar, clearly an inside job, perhaps a disgruntled employee familiar with the place. Completely ruined our trip, the resort has zero security and at the end of a mile long driveway, on first... More

In a beautiful, remote hilltop jungle location, our sweet little bungalow welcomed us to Montezuma. Agua Vista is a nice retreat from the town of Montezuma. Our bungalow had it's own dipping pool, hammock and outdoor (fully private) shower. The grounds have a koi pond and trails down to the river. Wildlife entertained us as we relaxed in the hammock.

Marvellous views of the ocean and jungle too, yet all the amenities are to hand. You can walk for miles in the national parks and not see the animals that wander into the garden, but none of them are intrusive. We had a wonderful time trying to photograph the humming birds.

Hands down one of the best places stayed in our two month tour of Costa Rica. Y'all were so sweet to our wife (girlfriend at the time) and I when we showed up off the water taxi (with Ruby from London) and didn't have a place to stay because we were "winging it" and trusting her research. The views are... More

A stay at Aguavista is the perfect antidote for city living! Khalida and Alex are ideal guides for the area, because Alex's family has been here for generations but they have both lived in the US. The grounds are lush and the accommodations private and beautiful. Wake to a gorgeous sunrise over the ocean and the sounds of birds and... More

We visited Montezuma in Feb. 2016 and choose to stay at Casa Cariblanco at the Agua Vista residence. The view from the house is spectacular and there's a hammock on the porch to lounge in and take in your surroundings. It's was probably less then a 10 minute drive down to the central part of Montezuma. You'll find good restaurants... More

Agua Vista is the BEST place to stay for a private jungle get away! We stayed in Casa Morfo and had our own private plunge pool surrounded by gardens and wildlife! We say Coati Mundis and Agoutis daily! The bungalow was very clean and comfortable. And the hosts, Alex and Khalida were great! We would stay here again in a... More

Just such a beautiful place. Quiet, lovely cabins, views are spectacular. The only thing is the access road which is difficult and you DO need a car. Alex was great and so helpful with ordering us taxis. Would thoroughly recommend this place and only wish we didn't live so far away as we'd love to go back!

I stayed at one of the Agua Vista cabins for three days this January and really enjoyed it. The cabins are set in a beautiful and quiet location with good views of the ocean. The cabin itself was very clean and included fresh linens, a kitchen with new appliances, hot water in the shower, and a comfortable bed in a... More

If you are looking for the perfect get away location, this is the place to stay! We were pleasantly surprised by the size of where we stayed (casa morpho) and the shady and cold personal pool was wonderful after long days in the sun! We did not have a car to get around the area, which I do not recommend... More

Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure meeting the two of you and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. True, having a car is certainly more convenient, but you DO miss out of seeing much wildlife. Mixing the walking with taxi rides is the way to to :) We hope to have the opportunity... More
