We arrived at Rainforest Casita with Hot Springs in the midst of a 3-day long rainstorm and thank goodness we rented a 4-wheel drive vehicle because this place was absolutely worth every back road you must take to get to it. We were greeted by Kathy's wonderful smile and hospitality as soon as we pulled up. She took us directly to our casita and showed us around the property. Its absolutely gorgeous and there was only one other couple staying there so it was as if the place was ours! Kathy recommended a local caterer for some local tico food and it was delicious! So good, in fact, that we ordered breakfast from her for the next day too! After 14 hours of travel, we were quite eager to jump into a hot springs, rain or no rain. A night there is light around some of the pools so its easy to find your way. The casitas were cozy and we slept great! Even though it was raining in the morning we still enjoyed a morning dip in the pools back in the woods before we left. Kathy and Bernie are wonderful hosts!! If I ever return I will be sure to spend more than just one evening with them. Oh, and share some love with Pepe their dog. He is just as much of a greeter as Kathy and Bernie. Pura Vida!!
