First time to Costa Rica.. First time vacationing as an adult and I couldn't have imagined staying in any other place in CR. Breathtaking views, wonderful staff, and the most relaxing atmosphere. Loved the privacy of having only 5 villas during the day and after 4 is a party. We stayed week of 2/17/14 and weather was perfect! No bug bites. Wifi only available in restaurant/pool area so got to relax on the day bed and catch up on Netflix. Roger and Heidi were so wonderful in getting everything for us. They really want to make sure you're taken care of as well as the staff. They have a cat and 2 big dogs which didnt bother us at all.
Def rent an ATV, hotel sits on top of a steep dirt/rocky hill. Close to neighboring town Santa Teresa. Ziplining and guides were awesome. Waterfall tour was cool. Got to jump into the swimming hole. Be prepared to hike! I shouldve hit the gym at least once lol.
We are two extremely busy female friends in our early 20s with 2-3 jobs/school/a kid back home in the snowy Boston/merrimack valley and loved that Vista was our little piece of escape from life. It was like Heaven!! I can't wait to return sometime soon!!
P.S. Their sons and Diego were a lovely piece of eye candy and wonderful to talk to ;) which made our stay that much better. We loved their accents and could listen to them talk all day :)
