we stayed at Buena Vista Lodge for a couple of days. There is horseback riding, watersliding, zip-lining, visiting the hot spring pools, hiking in the dry forest and just hanging out at the Sunset Bar to check out the fireflies. The ziplining was fun. there is a section where you can zipline upside down. The hot springs were nice - you enter the sauna before lathering mineral-rich volcanic mud on your skin. Once you rinse off there are 5 pools to enjoy, each at different temperatures. The area is surrounded by the forest. there is also a place for refreshments and massages.
the lodge itself is beautiful. each villa contains 2 rooms with private baths. there is no a/c but a ceiling fan to cool down. Toiletries include handmade soaps that they sell at the gift shop. The kids love finding ctenosaurs, green iguanas and frogs near the rooms. Abundant bird life, monkeys and agouti in the area. we saw a few snakes during our hike.
