Never having been to Costa Rica before, my sister and I wanted to experience the different parts of it. So before heading to the beach, we decided to spend a few days in the mountains. The rooms have a wonderful rustic feel, the food is delicious, the river is just as blue as it looks in the pictures and the tours are definitely worth doing. We did the ziplining tour and had a great time -- plus, the guides were very helpful and made us feel safe enough to take on the Tarzan swing.
But what truly made this place great was the exceptional service. We lost our car keys on the day we were supposed to leave, and the staff went above and beyond to help us out. They made repeated calls to the rental car company and gave us a new room to hang out in while we waited. Because we had to leave when it was dark out, Manuel at the front desk made sure to ask the rental car employee who brought us our new key to let us follow him to our new destination.
There are also tons of cute dogs to play with, which is a bonus. What a great experience -- we miss it already!
