The adventure tour options here are fantastic. We did the all day adventure pass one day which included horse back riding, river tubing, and zip lines. Afterwards you can also drive to the hot springs and soak. The following morning we did the waterfall rappelling tour which was a blast. The hotel rooms were rustic but clean. The restaurant had good food. I will recommend this place to others.

Great adventure tours, great hotel stay. The staff and tour guides were very attentive and obviously love what they do. We stayed four nights and did the one day pass (twice!), the National Park tour, the hot springs (twice) and one in our group did the mountain biking. The tour guides were awesome with our five year old. With their guidance she was able to ride solo on a horse and ziplined solo as well. The food was good, great portion size, and making reservations was super easy. The room was great, and the only problem we had with staying asleep was a really loud cicada perched outside our back window all four nights. (Totally no ones fault.) We highly recommend this hotel and trying out the total package!

We stayed here after arriving to Liberia. About an hour drive from the airport. We had a 4x4 but doable in a sedan. Easy to find with google maps. We did the river tubing tour which was crazy fun. The staff on the tour were great. The food was delicious. The room was clean and spacious and had AC. We also went to the hot springs. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Great place to start out in Costa Rica during the time of COVID. We had a great room that was listed as ‘62’ on the key but ‘suite 1’ on the door, and it was large, spacious, and well-appointed. Restaurant food was very good and restaurant was the usual open-air arrangement; watch the hummingbirds and the noisy green parrots. Pool is small and probably only of interest to kids. Sits inside the national park perimeter and if you are on the list with a reservation they don’t charge you a fee at the gate. Nice local craft beers available. The red pool is a nice hollow 8n the river you can go and swim in. The waterfall close to the entrance where you drive in the staff will tell you it is shorter to walk along the road to the path to the falls, but the dirt road off the paved road is steep and muddy after the rain which comes every day this time of year. We found it better to return from the waterfall by the other path through the woods that links up with the red pool trail behind the adventure center. That path is not as steep and somehow escapes the mud and slipperiness of the shorter trail, and your rewarded with views of mushrooms in at least six different bright colors.
