“Unique experience”
Reviewed October 28, 2009

When you look for something special en unique, visit the Rio Rico Safari Lodge. The rooms are tents on platforms with private bathroom. Every evening we went to bed with all the jungle sounds and woke up with monkeys. Looked like they were at our balcony ;-)

The service is great. Especially the fresh coffee from Cees. He makes on of the best Cappuccino’s in Costa Rica.

The location is also nice for kids. The river (with swim holes) is clean and save. They have, a bit downstream, a nice waterfall.

You need to come by car. It is in the jungle. So no bus or other public transport.
