Hotel Gavilán Río Sarapiquí

700 m north of Comando Atlántico (naval command), Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, Heredia, 41001, Costa Rica

Beautiful gardens run down to the river, and colorful tanagers and three types of toucan feast in the citrus trees on the grounds of this two-story lodge, where comfortable, terra-cotta-floor rooms are nicely accented with decorative crafts. The restaurant, which serves Costa Rican comida típica (typical fare), has earned its good reputation. Prime activities are horseback jungle treks, boat trips up the Sarapiquí River, and bird-watching—more than 100 species have been spotted here.
