Fodor's Review

At this working ranch, intersected by a brook, you can see caballeros (cowboys) at work, take a horseback ride into the rain forest, and look for toucans from your room or the deck of your cabaña (cabin). Each has a pair of double beds, an outdoor table, and nice showers enclosed in large, reflective windows where birds gather to watch their reflections while you bathe. For complete isolation, request one facing the rain forest. An open-air restaurant serves

local meat and dairy products. The lodge is 3 km (2 miles) up a rough track—4WD is a must in rainy season—on the road headed south from La Fortuna to La Tigra.
