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.

What our clients say

  • Most Memorable Moment?: There are a few but being so close to wildlife during the journey was amazing!!!

    JW, London
  • Costa Rica as a whole was very impressive in its attitude towards eco-tourism. Actively reforesting areas that have previously been de-forested and setting up new areas of rain forest/park.

  • Highlights: Bird watching at Tortuguero and snorkelling on the reef in Belize which was simply amazing.

    GW, Winchester
  • Highlights?: Seeing the Quetzal with Carlos; finding the MotMot on our own at La Quinta; seeing the Eyelash Pit Viper on the Hanging Bridges trip; all of the 5 days with Esteban and Alberto were brilliant (and my husband seeing the Roseate Spoonbill and Jabiru at Palo Verde - I loved the Fiery Aricaris a few feet in front of us at Rio Magnolia). In all we saw 234 species of birds.

  • The treks throughout the trip were superb. Excellent guides and the range of wildlife was stunning.

    WRDT, Bakewell
  • So many memorable experiences - flying into Tortuguero, watching turtle hatchlings race to the sea, the boat ride out of Tortuguero, all the animals (including a mummy sloth with baby attached climb down a tree in the middle of a restaurant and then back up again), Monteverde scenery, Tamarindo beach, our son learning to surf, snorkelling in Cahuita and seeing a turtle and a nurse shark, how lovely the Costa Rican people are.
