Fodor's Review

Located within the Centro Neotrópico Sarapiquís, an environmental educational center, museum, and garden, you can stay the night inside indigenous-inspired circular palenque (huts) buildings with palm-thatch roofs. The eco-friendly buildings reflect the center's commitment to sustainability, and for a fee, guests have access to a botanical garden, forest preserve, and other facilities and nature-themed activities. Rooms are well sized and decorated with pre-Columbian-style art.
