Fodor's Expert Review Cascata del Bosco Hotel, Restaurant & Bar

200 m from entrance to Wilson Botanical Garden, Las Cruces, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Just 200 meters from the entrance to Wilson Botanical Garden, this collection of four totally private, round bungalows, set amid gardens and forest teeming with birds, is designed for nature-lovers. Each spacious, high-ceilinged house is patterned with sinuous trees made with inlaid stones, and topped with a cupola and a bamboo-pole roof. Wrap-around windows and wide terraces are ideal for bird watching. Inside, there's a queen bed and kitchenette; outside, a private balcony provides mountain views and a perch for bird-watching. All the cabins are accessible to those with mobility problems. The centerpiece of the garden is a stunning stand of giant bamboo. Crisscrossing the forested property are 3 kilometers of easy hiking trails. The huge, open-air restaurant serves international dishes, specializing in smoked and barbecued meat and fish. A hearty tipico or American-style breakfasts, cooked on a wood-fired griddle, is included in room rates. There's Wi-Fi and satellite TV in the rooms, but no phones.
