After a week in Flamingo at language school we looked up this place and came on a whim. We loved it. There was something for everybody. My daughters loved the horseback riding. My son and I loved the crazy scary waterslide (worth the annoying added price for sure!) and the bridges were cool. My wife of course loved the hot springs. The food at the buffet was a welcome change to beans and rice and the pool was relaxing. While there were other highlights of our trip this was definitely up there at the top. The staff was friendly and it was fun to see all the random critters walking around looking for food. Kind regards from Cali.

Annual family vacation this year took us to Costa Rica. My family and I stayed at Riu Guanacaste, we visited with Eric on the beach as suggested by other travelers. I was a little leery of booking a zipline tour not knowing if it was fully sanctioned, once we got to the property and met the staff and others participating I was put at ease. The staff was awesome and ziplining was the scariest fun I have had. Staff was very friendly, professional and patient.

Had such a great time at Buena Vista!! We did the mega tour, so we got to zip line, ride horses, do the waterslide through the jungle, and hot springs. We also got a delicious lunch included. We highly recommend, and Herman and Jonathan were great help throughout the tour giving us an unforgettable day!

This place is awesome! We had such a great time. The staff are wonderful and loved the food. Everything is cook from the farm, so it's all SUPER fresh. The zip line here is a must do. The water side is cool too! You will love it!

The lodge it self was rather dark and a bit outdated, the bed was good, the room was spacious. Bathroom okay. Safe didn't work, you had to bring your valuables to the reception. Our lodge was at the "lake", more a big pond.
The property is on top of the mountain, so we had a specacualr view from the bar, with a beautiful sunset. The cocktails were also very nice and good price/ quality.
There were a lot of horses, sometimes you could smell them very well.
The thing we enjoyed most were the hanging bridges. We did them serveral times and saw a lot of birds. Also the toucan!
There were some trails you could hike, nice nature.
To go to the Parque Nacional Rincon de la Vieja (you really have to go there, it is a very nice reserve) you have to drive for one hour. It was not that well indicated. Use your GPS.
Since the property is on top of the mountain, you have to eat in the restaurant of the property. Luckily the food was very nice. We ate a la carte, because we are not that fond of buffets.
