My stay at Rainbow Valley Lodge was stupendous! The second floor room was more homey than anywhere I had stayed in Costa Rica. The view from the sunroom and kitchenette over the valley below with the moutainous backdrop was breathtaking. I watched the morning clouds roll over the continental divide, across the valley below, while hawks lofted overhead. I could hardly tear myself away from the vista. Rolf, the very attentive manager, not only recommended, but also furnished, superb Costa Rican coffee. The friendly and cute Coati was a begger that greeted me each morning from the treetops directly outside the panoramic windows and was fond of bananas. Even more exciting were the white faced monkeys who chattered for their food. Rolf had to distract the adult monkeys so I could feed the younger ones. Rolf was more than accomodating and recommended excellent day and night excursions. Each trip different and memorable, the tour guides were knowledgeable and they infused a reverence for the rainforest and cloud forest habitat. My favorites were Santamaria's night tour, Trappicha's coffee tour, fresh ice cream at the cheese factory, Curi-Cancha dawn hike, CASEM artist camp, Selvatura hanging bridges and ziplines. The weather was great. I can't wait to return!
