Tree Houses Hotel

We are planning to stay at the Tree Houses the end of July. So far our experience with them has been wonderful! Mark has been amazing in answering all of my questions and helping us plan all of our excursions. We are so excited!

Does anyone have any pointers for places to eat etc while we are there? We are renting a car.

The Tree Houses Hotel is very unique. Mark and his wife will be able to guide you to a restaurant that will fit your family's needs. We went to Happy Land for dinner one night and found it quite good. The portions were very large. La Fortuna is about 45 minutes away and is where you will find a lot of the attractions, zip lining, whitewater rafting, etc. Being that the tree houses are small, I would recommend getting one of the larger ones. There is a lot of wildlife right on the property, we saw a sloth and a troop of howler monkeys right above our treehouse. And, a tremendous number of hummingbirds.

Hello hope4tbreds! We recently stayed at Tree Houses and boy are you in for a treat! It is about a 45 minute drive from La Fortuna so going there for dinner is doable but you would need to give yourself plenty of time so you're not driving back in the dark. There are some sodas that are close by and like the above poster we also ate at Happy Land one evening and really enjoyed it. It was pouring down rain and they came out with an umbrella to walk us in. In fact it was my favorite casado during our stay in Costa Rica! If you go for lunch there are usually big iguana's hanging out. We also ate at Lomas del Mapache, it was good food (and the view is amazing) but very pricey. If they offer you the "special" make sure to ask the price and what is included. The breakfast at Tree Houses is very good and all you can eat. There is so much wildlife there. We saw the most species of birds there compared to anywhere else. I don't know if you are going to Proyecto Asis but it's a great place and very close to Tree Houses. If you have children going with you they would enjoy the interaction with the animals. Have a wonderful trip!

There is a little soda just up the street too which is pretty good and a true tico style soda. Make sure you go to Proyecto Asis since you're right there and it's an amazing experience, Mark can tell you all about it. Enjoy...you'll love the Treehouses, it's a truly unique place! :-)

On the theme of the Tree House: Has anyone stayed there without a car? If so were you able to travel about to places like the Hot Springs and Hanging Bridges? We don't want to drive around, but want to visit other places. I notice the price on the Tree House website for a day out at the Bridges is quite a bit more than the entry price alone. Any thoughts appreciated.

Yes, just like Roadadvisor said it's a long drive to La Fortuna, Hanging Bridges, and hot springs. It took us about 45 minutes to drive to La Fortuna and it would be another 15-20 to hot springs (depending on which one you went to), and about another 20-30 to hanging bridges. We ended up staying at Tree Houses for 2 nights and just doing things around there, hiking on their grounds and going to Proyecto Asis. It was very relaxing but not a lot to do as far as activities close by.

Thanks for the advice. Has anyone stayed at a hotel near the hot springs? Maybe we should have one night somewhere before we move on?

That is a great idea...check Silencio del Campo...great place run and own by local people...they offer a FREE hot spring...not a big one but a hot one...next door to Eco Termales...lovely hot springs run and own also by locals...same family as Silencio del Campo...

Avoid BALDI way to many people...cheap entrance fee expensive everything once you are inside...
