We stayed 2 nights at the Treehouse Hotel. Overall this was a great experience and the kids loved it. By way of information, our unit was really small and there was basically nowhere to put our suitcases. That was probably the main deficit. You are also about 1/2 hour from the town of Fortuna and even further from the volcano. If you don't have a car, this is challenging. I am not sure what people without a car did for meals as there are not many restaurants around. That being said, it's a unique and worthwhile experience. The highlight was the night walk with Efram (sp?). We saw sloths, monkeys and he took us to a place where you peeked through the trees and saw about 1000 white birds. Crazy. EXCURSIONS; if you have time, look into booking your own excursions. If you go through the hotels it is more money. For example, we have friends who drove right up to the zip lining and paid half the price. If you book through Treehouse, you need to bring a lot of cash as they don't take credit card deposits for the excursions and the one with the hot springs is entirely in cash which makes it all really inconvenient.
