This was our first time in Costa Rica, and we wanted to see the wildlife. Lapa Rios is a great place for viewing it all--monkeys, reptiles, birds, you name it! The resort itself is gorgeous, each room (bungalow) having a great view of the beach or rain forest. The staff is the best, attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable, and the food absolutely delicious. They helped me plan the entire trip, from airlines, land transportation, and things to do. We went on hikes with their guides who pointed out things we would have never seen on our own. There are hikes you can do on your own, too, like their waterfall hike. Great place to take a cool swim. We also went zip-lining (very fun), horseback riding (beautiful ride), waterfall repelling (great, great time), and kayaking through the mangroves (nice). I highly recommend this resort!
