Simple ranch-style lodge in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by cattle ranches and fruit plantations.

The secluded ranch-style Sueno Azul Hotel is set in the plains of northern Sarapiquí, surrounded by cattle ranches, fruit plantations and lush rainforest, an hour and a half's drive from San José. Whilst it dedicates a large proportion of its land to environmentally friendly programmes, it also offers a variety of enjoyable excursions (payable locally), such as nature tours, riding, canopying, tubing and botanical garden visits. Scattered amongst the grounds and surrounding area are waterfall-fed pools and natural water slides offering a refreshing and memorable swim.

The hotel has a charming family-run history and very friendly staff. A striking feature is the El Corral restaurant, converted from an old stable, which offers both traditional Costa Rican and international food. Built from wood, the hacienda has an authentic feel; the rooms are basic, clean and spacious with rustic touches.

Our Expert's Opinion

The sometimes basic decor and facilities of this rustic lodge are nevertheless made up for by its beautiful location and excellent birdwatching opportunities. I had a wonderful day taking a horse out for a ride to nearby waterfalls, swimming in natural pools and whizzing through the jungle canopy on a zipline.
