First trip to Costa Rica for us. There were 9 of us (2 families). We rented jeeps and drove to the lodge from San Jose airport with no problem. Bella Vista Lodge is a beautiful, rustic, lodge with beautiful water views, perfect for our 2 families. We had amazing meals prepared by Bert every night and enjoyed horseback riding, fishing trips, surfing, waterfalls, massages, and exploring Dominicals beaches and town. We loved listening to the Howling monkeys at night and seeing the many tropical birds. We can't wait to go back to The Bella Vista Lodge and see our good friend Bert again. Thanks Bert for making our vacation memorable. We had a great time!
