Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews

Truly amazing. AC was a godsend. Food and guides (Lius and Luis) great. Could have stayed here for weeks. Flight in was part of the experience. Highly recommend the flight. The activities included were wonderful, extra ones we booked (kayaking, turtles etc) were really fun. Fab location for wildlife spotting . As with everywhere, bar shut at 10pm. Not sure if this is seasonal or cultural.
