We visited Costa Rica in the first week of March, which I guess is a really windy time of year in Guanacaste as it was windy during our entire 10 day trip there. Not only is it windy during the day, but also at night. Sometimes the wind was stronger at night than during the day. Unfortunately for my folks...

Ended up staying in a nearby hotel due to this one being full, but we ate & did canopy tour & horseback riding thru Rinconcito Lodge. Everything was great. My 4 yr old son did the zipline & horses w/ one of the guides, who were incredible. The guides went above & beyond my expectations & made our trip incredible!...

I had a great time staying at Rinconcito Lodge. It's a superb starting place for a hiking trip to the Rincón de la Vieja. The rooms are very nice and the staff was very helpful and cheerful - they even tought us some salsa dancing, and when they were out of beers in the evening, they drove for more than...

Rinconcito is a nice place to stay if you want to stay close to the amazing Rincon de la Vieja park. The accomodation I got was basic and had what was necessary for me at the time, I'm not aware of the other facilities. The place is located in kind of the middle of nothing, but the guys working there...

Don't get too excited about this place it's just a place to sleep when u go to Rincon volcano. But rooms are dark and average, meals not that cheap and management could be a bit more cheerful.

Ok. First of all, this property was highly recommended both here and by some folks on the Thorntree discussion board site. Our expectations were high, and in some important respects, they didn't match our experience. But before going to the negatives, here are the highlights. The food was very good, with enough variety to for a couple of days of...

The staff of the lodge is really friendly, the location near the national park is good. My room was fine, although I would have liked to see à little reading light near the bed. My room had just one lightbulb and it gets dark early in Costa rica, so what todo (except for using the wifi in the dining area)...

I think the reviews of this hotel are over rated. I suppose it depends on where you have stayed before and it is a pleasant relaxing place but it was really isolated and as we didn't have a car we were a bit stranded. We didn't want to go on any of the organised tours that they try and sell...

Great hospitality, nice clean room. Our room was in chalet-style, hammocks on the terrace, great view over the hills. Since we stayed in low season, there was not a lot of choice to eat: steak, chicken or fish with rice or mashed potatoes and vegetables. But when we asked the "maitre" for a special sauce for the steak, it was...
