Fodor's Review

Book a comfortable room with a sweeping view of forest and mountains at this delightful hilltop bed-and-breakfast, owned by a charming young Belgian–Costa Rican couple. There are two bungalows with queen beds, attractive wood furniture made by a local artisan, and modern bathrooms. The larger, two-story bungalow can accommodate a family, with two single beds downstairs. All rooms have satellite TV and free Wi-Fi access. Two new bungalows, one for families and one with its own kitchen and a king-size bed will be ready in 2016. Enjoy your bountiful buffet breakfast on the spacious deck framed by entwined tree branches, and keep your binoculars close at hand. Pepe, a professional bird guide, will help you identify visiting birds, as well as organize birding and hiking excursions (tours starting from $20 per person). Kathleen, a tour guide who speaks five languages, prepares excellent three-course dinners, by reservation for both guests and nonguests, that combine European and Costa Rican flavors.
