Brought 15 students and faculty for a study abroad tour. This was one of the students' favorite places to stay. The lodges' rooms are spacious and clean. Hot water, nice pool (with a nice bar for the grown ups). The views were amazing. Didn't do the adventure activities but it was well-located on the property for those who might do... More

We stayed for the first time. There was a lot to do here! The pool/bar area is very nice for friends and families. The little huts are clean and have good A/C. We did the Volcanic mud spa for just $15 and it was a new fun experience! The hanging bridge over the river is a thrill in itself. They... More

Traveling from San José, Costa Rica to the Canyon Lodge took about 4 hours by car. The lodge is just 3 km East of the Inter Americana and about 18 km away from the Rincon de la Vieja Natinal Park. The facility offers individual cabins, nicely equipped (no TVs, but air conditioning). Wi-Fi available close to the Bar, Restaurant and... More

I stayed here with 3 friends. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and spoke good English. The rooms were clean, had air conditioning, and hot showers! The breakfast included coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, beans and rice, toast, and plantains. The activities offered were a lot of fun. We did the day package and truly enjoyed it.

Nicely laid out, fairly quiet resort close to Rincon de la Vieja national park. Helpful staff and good amenities. Pleasant bar area reasonably priced. Spacious clean cabanas either close to pool area or in more secluded areas.

We had quite a lovely two days at this location. It is outside of the park, not far from Liberia - set in the forest. It is not within the park, so the outdoor adventure experiences are not what they may be within the park, but they have a quite enjoyable zip line tour. Accommodations are in duplex cabins -...

We stayed here after a day long adventure tour and really enjoyed it. Our private cabin was very nice, the pool area is great to relax at for a bit, and the breakfast was pretty good. I have to say dinner at the restaurant wasn't amazing, but there are few options other than hotels in the park. Good, quiet and... More

We did not stay at the hotel. We did walk around the complex. The grounds looked a little run down and the restaurant as well. I booked a kayaking tour with them. The tour was great. The river was beautiful and the kayaking was fun but I was a little disappointed that we could not kayak alone. My husband and... More
