Selva Verde is a beautiful property set in lush jungle. Our spacious and comfortable room was in a four-plex near the river. Birds sang outside and we awoke each morning to the sound of howler monkeys calling.
Sergio Arias and his staff were friendly and helpful and took care of our every need--including fixing a flat tire. The nature guides were fun and very knowledgeable. Eliam extended the length of our hike when he saw that we were genuinely interested in the local flora and fauna. My only suggestion for Selve Verde would be more local dishes offered in the dining room--but perhaps that is driven by demand.
Our trip was both business and pleasure. Selva Verde was a "time-out" from launching my new book "Turning Turtles in Tortuguero: Stories From the Origins of Sea Turtle Conservation". Though far from the sea, the staff at Selva Verde was interested and enthusiastic about the book.
Costa Rica is an amazing country. My next trip there will include another stay at Selva Verde.
