It rained all three days we stayed here, but it was wonderful nonetheless. That is our room in the photo for the lodge. It was airy and the view was spectacular. The food and service were delightful and the hosts were considerate and solicitous. It was an old-world experience revved up for the new world. It's a rough road to get there and a rougher road to get into the park to Rio Celeste, but this is the place to stay if you are going. We particularly enjoyed hiking on the private trail on the property. The best part of the visit was the food. It was excellent and it was all included. We ate steak one night and it was cooked rare for me. Other nights we had pork and fish. The soups and side dishes were interesting; they use local ingredients and treat them with a French fusion.
