  • It is a place to what must go! The reserve, trails, viewpoints that have are too beautiful! And there is a plus... the restaurant is first! Pizzas and Smoothies are delicious in addition there are vegetarian options... Very quiet and overlooking the Gulf and peninsula of Nicoya.

  • We went in the morning, the staff was really helpful. They have well mapped trails and they provide information on current wildlife sittings before you go out. Overall a really great experience!  more »

  • Beautiful location, surrounded by great sights and nature. The sustainable project being developed there are encouraging and educational, especially since the hotel seems to work well along with it's nature preserve and tourist services. Only negative aspect is that for what already is a bit expensive drinks and cocktail menu, there's only the option to pay with cash and only one cashier to do it at (the reception/hotel front desk), which is a bit of a hassle to do especially if it's for a larger group of people.
  • We ended up walking all the trails here one rainy day. The price is $15 per person and is cash only. The trails that cross the reserve are well maintained. The outer loop takes you to quite a few platforms at scenic vistas and includes detour paths down the canyon to the waterfall and another scenic overlook.
  • Really liked it! Saw much life! The only downside is that it is not very large.
  • Excellent night walk and the very helpful guides

  • Night tour: quite nice to run through the night. Some were sleeping birds, a Tarantula, a Scorpion, but nothing what the price justifies.
