We stayed overnight at Braulio Carillo within the National Park in their Rainforest Lodge. I'm not sure many people know that this is an option - you can stay in a bungalow in the middle of the rainforest for a very decent price (about $80/night)! The bungalows are very spacious and VERY nice. Probably the nicest accommodations we saw while in Costa Rica. It is PITCH BLACK at night and very quiet. Only the noise of the nature surrounding you! Staying there was a great experience.

When we arrived at the park we sat down with the staff and they put together a package deal for us. We stayed for two days - two nights in the lodge, had two tram rides with a guide, had a night walk with a guide, had all our meals at the restaurant on site, did white water rafting and zip lining. They gave us a GREAT deal for all of that. The rafting and zip lining was great!

The staff at the park is VERY service-oriented, friendly, and helpful. The food at the restaurant was good too. The park was not overrun by tourists and we had a quiet, relaxing time exploring the rainforest.

Highly recommended!

Amazing scenery. It's a huge national park, so it depends on where you go, but just even driving through or hiking a trail is spectacular. Real Rainforest.

Magical place. The best part is you dont have to take a day out of your itinerary to enjoy, the drive is very scenic on the way to Guapiles, where you can enjoy a great rafting trip on the way to your next destination in the Chirripo River, Class III+. Also Rainforest Adventures offers a high quality zipline tour that lets you glide above the national park.

Cool place. The only problem is tourist information. Is poorly organized. Any signs and information.

It feel so great to visit such a nice place. If you wanna see the real rain forest, then this is the place that you must see. Just be careful when driving.
