I have stayed here many times and each time things seem to get better. Pedro, who was the manager of Central America's most important horticultural educational facility, and his wife run a very tight ship with hands on management. They are gentle lovable people deeply connected to Nature. Their property shows their love of Nature.
The lodge has wonderful views and is only 20 minutes from the National Park at the top of Turrialba Volcano. One warning...make sure that you have full gas tank before you leave because gas stations are far and few between. The views are spectacular on the way to the hotel.
The hotel is also just 30 minutes away from the world famous Guayabo National Park which once was the commerce center of Central and South America. There is an adventur park nearby with a great restaurant next store. Vegetarian food is available.
If you love to study and experience Volcanoes this is the perfect place to stay. There are two major volcanoes within about an hour of the lodge...Turrialba and Irazu.
