My friend and I had such an amazing time it truly feels like paradise here. The tour guides were awesome and adventurous and we had the best time zip lining because of them. We also did the horse back ride and went into a waterfall...More

This place was amazing! I lived our lodge-type room with a hammock on the porch. The first thing we did was walk the extensive grounds full of tropical foliage and quaint wooden walkways. We sat in a natural sauna then covered each other in volcanic...More

I would call or email the resort to be sure. However, they are well equipped to handle the terrain. Most use 4 wheeled vehicles. If you rent a vehicle, be sure and reserve a 4-wheeled one. The terrain after about 5-7 miles drop off to rocky and dirt roads. Kevin or Angelique (his wife) speak excellent English. I am sure they will be honest with you.

I am also a smoker. There was no smoking in the lodge or cabin, which is normal. We had a small porch. I would go on it and smoke either on the porch or in the road. I kept a pop can or bottle with water in it to put my butts so as to not litter and not cause a fire. In the dry season it would especially be easy to cause a fire. I do not remember an actual designated 'smoking allowed' area. As you may know, Costa Rica is working to have its residents not smoke -- part of their healthy life style. Personally I try to be respectful of them and still have my smoke. Hope this helps.
