Evergreen Lodge
Will meet all your expectations, and the wildlife give a few superb surprises, great place to start our adventure. The road/river trip from San Jose to Evergreen was great.
Hotel Presidente
Only one night at this hotel, found it comfortable and a nice choice at breakfast.
Hotel Belmar
This hotel was excellent and the town was within walking distance, it had everything the tourist could wish for, we enjoyed many times with friends we had met on the trips, great restaurants too.
Lomas del Volcan
Superb hotel with great views of the volcano, restaurant was very good.A visit to the nearby hot springs is a must.
Hotel Capitan Suizo
This was our final hotel and the choice couldn't have been better. Ten minutes walk to the town which had great bars shops and restaurants, the rooms, pool and gardens are perfect and the adjoining beach offers some of the best surfing in CR.
