My girlfriend and I took a three week birdwatching trip to Costa Rica and Caño Negro was our second stop. Though the area might seem a bit remote to some, I loved it here. Caño Negro is a VERY small town and it offered all the charm and friendliness that often comes with such places. The grounds are simply immaculate, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the food in the restaurant was delicious. Jumping into the gorgeous pool after the 20 kilometers of hot, dusty and bumpy road was fantastic. The staff was charm personified. In particular, I want to point out Jessica at Reception and Edwin and Ramón from the restaurant. All of them seemed genuinely happy people who were great at their jobs. (On his day off, Edwin saw us out birdwatching in the town and took the time to walk over to greet us and ask how we were doing. A small gesture, yes, but it made us feel truly welcome.) The birding in Caño Negro was among the best we had in Costa Rica--my girlfriend and I consider ourselves "intermediate" birders and we listed 89 species in a single day without getting into the car! If you're coming to Costa Rica to see the birds, I wholeheartedly recommend Natural Lodge Caño Negro.
