Fodor's Expert Review Tirimbina Rainforest Lodge

La Virgen de Sarapiquí, Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, Heredia, Costa Rica

A variety of comfy lodge accommodations put you close to this research complex's many fun nature-themed activities. The lodge is set in gardens that hug the Sarapiquí River. Standard rooms, which are laid out motel-style, facing the gardens, are basic but colorful, with bunk beds and your own chairs in front for relaxing. It's worth paying the slightly higher price for one of the deluxe rooms, which come with regular beds and a private terrace. All rooms have air-conditioning.

PROS

  • access to the reserve without a guide
  • terrific rates for what's offered
  • rooms have A/C, a rarity in this region

CONS

  • standard rooms are a bit spartan
  • can be difficult to find space
  • caters to groups, so not a place to go if you crave privacy
