This hotel lies in the middle of nowhere. However, it is a good location, because it is close to the entrance of the Rincon park and it is very easy to book tours and / or activities. The restaurant is good, there is buffet and a la carte and we liked it. Our room was somewhat small for 4 people, and there wasn''t any hot water when I wanted to take the shower. At some parts of the hotel you smelled the horses (it did not bother us, even though we were not that far from the ranche). We booked a tub riding tour and we could choose to ride a horse of the bus tot the river. We took the horses. Nice trip, the horses know exactly where to go. Rivertubing was great fun! Everything starts right from the hotel.
Do take a hike at the National Park. There is a hike that leads you through boiling muds, hot water springs and jungle. About 4 km, a great hike!!! must do!
The hot springs are also a must! Great adventure to wrap yourself in mud and then wash it away in the river and the hot springs. Hot springs are free when you are a guest of Guachepelin.
