Got a LivingSocial deal to visit Chachagua Hacienda and have been pleased by the entire experience. Grounds are immaculately kept, cute creek runs through the venue, wonderful food. On CR Independence Day, had an amazing meal. Every morning, my husband and I have gone to check on the chickens and hogs. One of the hogs gave birth to piglets while we were here. Have also made friends with the puppies -- we named one of the "bumpy" for his bump on his head.
MUST KNOW: If driving from San Jose, you will travel through the cloud forest. Not sure if this is year round, but at least while we were here the cloud forest gets thick as early as early-mid afternoon. Can be a treacherous drive, even for locals as we saw one flip their car over. Definitely don't recommend driving here at night from SJO. Because our flight is so early we are cutting our stay one night short and moving into Alajuela. Otherwise, great stay.
MUST DO's of the area: Naranjo Coffee Tour, Arenal 1968 hike and Baldi Springs.More
