Set along the beautiful Rincon de la Vieja National Park, this working farm still has some of the original buildings incorporated into the area of the hotel, which is a lovely mix of historic and rustic with contemporary touches.

Set alongside the beautiful Rincon de la Vieja National Park, the low-rise hacienda is a working farm established as long ago as 1880, open its doors to guests in 1985. In fact, some of the original ranch buildings are incorporated into the area of the hotel, which is a lovely mix of historic and rustic with contemporary touches. Wooden columns and beams, potted patio plants, stone tiles and an open air restaurant create a really rural atmosphere. The guest rooms are also in keeping with the ranch style, and feature authentic hand-crafted Costa Rican wooden furniture in the Guanacaste hacienda style. In keeping with the commitment to sustainable tourism, solar-powered heaters on the roofs deliver hot water on demand to modern equipped bathrooms. Wide verandas with hammocks and seats allow guests to mingle.

A wide range of classic Costa Rican outdoor activities can be undertaken from the lodge, including horse riding, mountain biking, zip-lining and water rafting. There is also a choice of slower-paced nature tours, including a visit to the butterfly farm.

Our Expert's Opinion

The onsite activity centre is outstanding, with something to cater for everyone from families to adrenaline junkies. My favourite thing about this hotel though is its proximity to Rincon de la Vieja national park which is unlike anywhere else I visited in Costa Rica and really highlights the amazing diversity the country has to offer.
