Perfect for first night but we were a bit tired to appreciate it having taken four hours to get through immigration which was tough after a eleven hour flight.

Selva Verde Lodge

Sarapiqui

Our room was poor being on the corner of a block of four and all others in the block had to walk past our room which was difficult. There were better rooms nearer the river which would have been better.
All made up for by the excellent guided walks.
Food was ok breakfast good

Room was good clean and comfortable it was a bit regimented in terms of being summoned to dinner at 7.00 sharp and told what time to have breakfast but as the guides doubled up as doing everything maybe it was neccessary
