I have been living in Costa Rica for one year and visited many many spots and hotels. I have yet to find a place like Rafiki!
If you come to Costa Rica to brighten your life and feel hard to find emotions, go to Rafiki! It all starts at the road that leads your there... What an adventure! You will be immersed deep in the tropical rainforest accompanied by an amazing South African family who legitimately just want to make this world a better place.
The have all kinds of sustainable practices: They produce their own electricity, compost their waste, educate, hire and collaborate with the locals and at the heart of it all, make you realize that we live in a delicate and supremely interconnected environment. The staff is very knowledgeble (botanists, biologists, veterinarians...) and the attention is supremely customized.
DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT doing the white water rafting tour!
I want to take the opportunity to thank the Rafiki Safari family for their constant attention and for making me feel like I had a second home here in Costa Rica!
