Very confortable and nicely decorated wood lodge with hot water, a basic small kitchen and a great covered terrace from where you can observe beautiful birds and monkeys, while enjoying your morning coffee or your meals. It s a unique experience to stay in such a different place and surrounding than your home !
You are in real Costa Rica. Local people are amazingly nice and helpful. You can find great local and cheap restaurants in Bijagua. The nature is just beautiful. You will find peace and relaxation.
  • Highly recommended if you like seclusion. Check-in was straightforward. A four-wheel drive car is definitely an advantage.

  • Beautiful rustic cabin in a lovely forest. So special to wake up and open the windows to a world of green! The amenities are great and to be honest quite high tech for a place so rustic- great flushable toilet, warm shower and fancy sink. More like glamping than camping :) One thing that I would recommend is to try to arrive before dark. We arrived after dark and it was quite difficult to find the cabin/figure out how to open the gate/not be eaten by bugs in the process.

    Anvita2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • If you like to stay off the beaten path this place is perfect!! It’s super cute and cozy. We loved hearing the sounds of the forest and animals at night. The shower has hot water which is hard to come by in Costa Rica so that was fantastic. You can even open the window and look into the forest while you shower. We loved staying here!

    Leah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible jungle experience. So much wildlife right outside our door. Comfortable beds, clean space, and everything we needed. Loved sitting on the porch and heading the sounds of the jungle at night. Be prepared for a rough road to get here - 4 wheel drive is a must. Get all food before arriving because you probably won’t want to venture out at night on the road. We parked at the top of the hill on the driveway to avoid getting stuck in the mud.

    Cortney2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional environment in the middle of the jungle immersed in the Ticos. Clean cabin and nice touches.

    Margot Et Quentin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Silvia was a very attentive, understanding and accommodating host. This was one of my favorite experiences in Costa Rica and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique and off the beaten path experience. High marks for cleanliness, especially for how remote of a location it is in the jungle environment.

    Nathan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to disconnect.

    Fabio2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very special place......if you love the rainforest and the wildlife that goes with it. The kitchen is very small, but totally adequate for the production of good evening meals. The fridge is small and so carefull planning is necessary but was adequate for our 4 day stay.

  • This is one of the best air b&b’s we have ever stayed in! The family are so kind and thoughtful, they really went the extra mile to ensure we had the perfect stay in Bijagua. From transport tips, activity recommendations and even helping us with our laundry. We cannot thank them enough!

    Kirsty2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful visit to Bijagua. The room is a lovely little private space with a full bathroom and separate entrance. Very clean. Good location near sodas and the bus stop. Jorge Mario and his family were the reason my stay was so wonderful. They helped me get to Rio Celeste and showed me all the many reasons to love Bijagua. Muy buena gente.

    Melanie2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mario's parents' house is an excellent place! They are very warm and hospitable, helping us at all times and even approaching the National Park by car. We fell in love with Bijagua! Hopefully someday we can come back!

    Audrey2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing place in a natural setting. Clean room. Simple but good breakfast Home of Leda very friendly!

    Nico2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Leda's place is located in Bijagua, which is a small town, which is highly walkable. This is a great place to stay if you are interested in visiting Tenorio National Park and Rio Celeste. Most communication prior to check-in was through her family member who was easily accessible via telephone and was fluent in English. Leda greeted me warmly and showed me around her beautiful property. At nighttime, her property and the surrounding animals has quite a few animals including birds, armadillo and even monkeys. It was very quiet and nighttime and provided an amazing view of the nighttime sky. She provided amazing hospitality including a delicious fresh breakfast with eggs, fruit, juice and coffee.

    Brandon2019-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t even explain how much I loved it here. The area is absolutely beautiful, the house is charming, and the puppy they have is just the icing on the cake- so cute! In the mornings there was always a delicious breakfast with lots of fruit and hot food and fresh juice. She helped me make call a cab to Rio Celeste, and offered us dinner at night, and snacks and fresh juice mid afternoon. My back gave out the night after hiking and she took me to the farmacy in town for medicine, and I stayed an extra day to recuperate and the company was so enjoyable and relaxing. I really have rarely felt so welcome and comfortable. They truly go above and beyond the duties of a host ♥️♥️

    Hannah2019-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Good location for sloth spotting and walks in the jungle. We went up the street to Finca Verde and enjoyed walking around there. Leda is darling and greeted us with coffee and a snack. The outlets in our room were pretty aged and some of our plug-in items wouldn't stay in (unable to bend the prongs), but that was minor. We enjoyed the hammocks and Leda's Tico hospitality.

    Sasha2019-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Traveling through the beautiful countryside around Bijagua/Miravalles/Upala and our four nights stay at Leda's was definitely the favorite part of our two week trip to Costa Rica ... Waking up to nature sounds, surrounded by greenery and enjoying Leda and her family's hospitality was all very special. The property is just a five minute drive off the main road going through Bijagua, very easy to find. We enjoyed socializing with the other guests staying there too. Nice room with bathroom/shower. Quiet and peaceful. Definitely recommend a stay there. Gracia Leda!

    Robin2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Leda's home is wonderful. The rooms are nicely furnished, with a couple of nice little homey touches. Her common areas are comfortable and are quite often shared with family or friends who've stopped by for a visit. She fixed us two very nice breakfast and was helpful with a utensil, or extra ingredient when we prepared our own meals. She has a great reputation in the town as being so friendly and nice to everyone. We can see why, and would definitely stay with her again.

    Jeanne2018-10-29T00:00:00Z

    The Cocoa Farm Finca La Amistad is located near Tenorio National Park and the village of Bijagua, in the north of Costa Rica. You will love my accommodation because of cocoa and chocolate, Birdwatching, atmosphere, outdoor space, comfortable bed, Tenorio National Park and Rio Celeste. My accommodation is good for couples, solo travelers and families (with children).

  • This place is magical! We stayed on the farm for two days and took advantage of the free farm tour, did horseback riding to Rio Celeste, and engaged in the chocolate making tour during our stay. I really enjoyed the hammocks and rocking chairs which were conducive for great leisure reads and admiring life on the farm. Julia and the other ladies were so hospitable and made delicious meals for breakfast and dinner. Luis is so kind and knowledgeable about the cacao operation. I appreciate the other guests who recommended a 4x4 and echo their recommendations! Highly recommend a stay here! I cannot wait to return.

    Isabel2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • You must stay here!!! This place is spectacular! They have home cooked food on site and you never have to leave the farm. They make sure your experience is top notch and even book excursions for you. They are absolutely welcoming and will accommodate in any way they can. The cabin has no ac which is fine because won't need it. Please give this place a try, you won't regret it!

    Michael2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the Cocoa farm. You can easily spend a full day here without getting bored. The farm offers a chocolate making class where you grind up the cocoa beans and make 70% dark chocolate from scratch, going through the whole process. Costs $35 per person, but very interesting and you go home with 8 bars of chocolate. Stay here for the dinner, the atmosphere is very romantic and the food delicious and plentiful. In the morning, you can go for a complimentary tour around the cocoa farm for 1.5 hours.

    Stas2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! If you want to stay a night before or after the hikes to El Rio Celeste, this is the perfect place to stay. In the middle of the Cacao Farm, everyone is very nice and do everything as you can enjoy your stay as much as possible. The breakfast is included in the price of the room and it’s really a big one made its good products. You can also enjoy the Farm Tour at 8:30 in the morning, which is also included with the room, and learn how they managed the plantation and prepare the Cacao beans. You can have diner as well for 15$ per person and it’s very well appreciated since the farm is a bit far from the restaurants. The only thing is that you will need a 4x4 car and be ready to drive on damaged tracks to reach the place. Thank you to all the team for your warm welcome!

    Damien2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the finca. Everybody was very kind and the food was delicious. Louis gave us a great tour and told us a lot about the process of making chocolate. The road is bumpy but not problematic. We went to the Blue Water of Rio Celeste which was beautiful, and a one-and-a-half hour trip to Caño Negro with a impressive boattour, spotting all kinds of birds and leguana’s, we can highly recommend this trip!

    Alfred2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay at the farm! The meals and breakfasts were plentiful and very good. The farm tour in the morning is a real bonus, we loved it. The farm also offers other activities at an additional cost. The road is a bit difficult to access but the place is very peaceful, well maintained and close to the Rio Celeste. We recommend this airbnb.

    Emilia2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, we had more than a great stay at Finca La Amistad. The place is just wonderful in an idyllic setting. We definitely recommand at least 1night with the cacaotour and chocolate making! Great moments, great memories and Perfect chocolate!

    Sarah2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Finca la Amistad. It is a working cacao farm but everything is beautifully manicured. The cabin and restaurant are built all in wood with nice detailing. The plantation looks like a garden and has lots of birds. Included is a tour of the farm where they explain you how it is grown, harvested and processed. You get to taste different kinds of chocolate too. If we hadn't planned the rest of our trip in advance we would have liked to stay longer!

The cabin is located on a nice farm/garden and it is very quit (aside from animal noises). We saw Toucans and a lot of other birds there.

    Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica

    La Casita Azul is a simple but very authentic little wooden cabin. Our finca is located on the edge of a small village at the foot of Vulcano Tenorio in the northern part of Costa Rica. It is an idyllic place, enveloped by the rain forrest where horses are still ridden as a main way of transportation. We are mainly self sufficient. We produce cheese, yogurt and other milk products; we grow organic fruits, plenty of organic vegetables and coffee.
    If you feel like spending a few days in a quiet natural place off the beaten track and away from major tourism you are welcome to visit us.
  • If you are looking for a luxurious five star resort, this isn’t it. But if you want to better understand rural Costa Rica, learn what it is like to have a minimal impact on our fragile earth, and have food from the garden, milk and cheese from the cows up the hill, and an early morning serenade from the local birds, then the Azul Casita is where you want to be. Andi and Angi were generous with their time and local knowledge, and gave me my first lesson on how to milk a cow!

    Beverly2019-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at La Casita Azul was without a doubt a true highlight of our week in CR. The sounds of wildlife and rain all around us couldn't have been more peaceful. Andi and Angi have created such a beautiful, sustainable farm space and we were honored to get to share such fresh, delicious meals with them. The casita was humble, comfortable, and in such a breathtaking location. So grateful for such hospitality and such an authentic experience truly off the beaten path. Glad to have had a 4WD vehicle to have made it up the gravel road. Already thinking about my next trip to CR with my partner and would love to stay here again for more than just a night. Thank you Andi and Angi for such a wonderful experience all around!

    Alana2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Andi & Angi was really great! They are so kind, helpful and have guided us with such joy in their little paradise. The food was fantastic (like home) and we would definitely stay there again. We really only recommend her and her cottage! Especially if you need a bit of distance from the fray and seek a little peace in nature.

    Hannah2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Most memorable Stay and breakfast during our stay in Costa Rica. If you like atypical accommodation, quiet place in full nature, authentic people and dream to experience incredible things like milking the cows, it is for you ! A big Thank you !

    Olivier2019-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Casita is a simple, small but charming azure cottage, consisting of two bedrooms, a dining / Aufhaltshaltszimmer a kitchen and a bathroom with toilet. There is water (also warm water) and electricity. There are no windows, but an intact mosquito net over our bed awaits us. Here at the edge of the small village is the Casita (and the house of the hosts) isolated. At night you only hear the animals of the forest and the farm's own dogs and chickens. In the garden of the Casita grows a mandarin tree. And a single pineapple. If you are looking for peace and seclusion, this is the place for you. Andi and Angi run a small farm with two dairy cows and produce their own dairy, bread, jam, juices, .... They are excellent cooks. And hosts! We felt very well with the two.

    Babsy2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • excellent breakfast with homemade products. we had a good time and enjoyed the lovely little rustic cabin. we recommend.

    Jimmy2019-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • I was not quite sure what to expect going into my stay here. However, the stay was way more then I expected. The Casita is a small 4 room cabin with a 2 bedrooms, small main room and a small kitchen/sink area with attached bathroom. Lots of space by myself, but even with 3 guests would be plenty of space. Andi & Angi meet me when I arrived and showed me around. They offer dinner and breakfast which was some of the best food I ate in Costa Rica and also most of it they grow or produce themselves. Gave lots of tips on places to go and things to see around the area and were fantastic hosts. The bed was very comfortable and an all around awesome place to stay off of the beaten path. The directions to the casita are a must, and numerical addresses do not exist in Costa Rica it seems. Also would highly recommend a 4x4 if you are driving the whole way, however, not that far of a walk if you have to park early. In all I absolutely loved the place and would come back for sure if I return to Costa Rica.

    Ian2018-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely couple that landed a beautiful property! It’s a very peaceful place with lots of wildlife around. We had dinner and breakfast prepared and it was outstanding. Completely fresh and home grown or made. My sister and I slept like babies in our separate rooms. A frog did jump on me while I was in the bathroom adding to the fun! They have sweet and well behaved pups and a gentle horse. Cows give milk for home made cheese and butter. Thanks for the lovely night! We will be back.

  • I loved the place, it was a tremendous luck for me to get there, for those days I was sick and received a lot of love and love with honey. It is a very welcoming family and they are very beautiful people. It is a quiet place, surrounded by nature, totally recommended !! It is on a farm where you can go for a walk and see the lake, and right there Mrs. Romarie has a restaurant where she serves delicious food, coffee, cakes !!! and exquisite salads with vegetables from the same garden. Thank you so much for everything!!!

  • This heavenly cabin in the country is a magical place to stay: set among banana trees, papaya trees, sugar cane, and a working dairy farm, it forces you to slow down and take in the natural beauty of this region. Though it seems isolated, and it takes some bouncing down rough roads to get to, it's very close to Tenorio National Park and the charming town of Bijagua. Ana and her cousin went out of their way to make sure we saw all the wonders of the place, including a sloth lazing in a tree nearby. I'm so grateful for their hospitality!

    Katy2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ana is a very hospitable host and offers great suggestions about the surrounding area

    Sam2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This little house is perfectly what we were looking for. Located in an incredible environment, all green and in the middle of nature, a perfect place to rest. The house inside has very good taste in terms of decoration and with everything you need. We only miss a stove to cook a little more, since there is only one electric pan and a rice cooker. In the area of the rooms it is a bit cold, we have a windy night and if it is true that it sneaks a lot. Still, there were two blankets that we used to sleep and we were very good. 100% recommended to disconnect.

    Alba2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, out in the country, with a great view of the stars at night. Clean. Nice farm area to check out around it. Inside shower with running water, although didn't get too hot. Great, helpful communicative host!

  • Margot goes above and beyond. She made us a Costa Rican breakfast and dinner, took us on a tour of her land and helped us find the blue jeans frog, arrow frog, and cafe frog, she gave us a tour of her garden and gave us fresh coconut, and shared many laughs and smiles through our conversations via google translate. Highly recommend!

  • An exceptional welcome, we felt at home in Margoth's house, thank you Margoth for these good moments spent together

    Anne2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Hello my friends, everything is amazing in Margoth's home, the kindness of Margoth, Juan José, and the animals, the magic of the river, the sound of the nice music on the other side of the road ! You can believe me if Margoth says that she will find a solution for you, be sure she will :) I definitely highly recommand this place ! ;)

    Séverine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We will never forget Margoth's welcome to her Rancho. Thank you, it was an exceptional moment.

  • Nice house in a quiet area. Margoth is really kind and welcoming! Great place

    Fannie2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a special place. Margoth and her family showed me exceptional Costa Rican hospitality. She cooked up the most delicious breakfasts and patiently listened to my very broken Spanish. Her cottage is the perfect place to see Costa Rica from the inside, to meet the neighbors and see the wildlife in the back yard. Katira and Upala both hold there own gems which Margoth will be happy to help you find and of course you must go to the Tenorio Volcano Park where if you are lucky you might catch a Coati peering out from the leaves beside the Rio Celeste.

  • Just perfect. The Domaine de Jorge is a haven of peace where you can enjoy a clean and welcoming space. Special mention for the small stream that passes through its property and the deckchairs that border it. Pura Vida!

    Lilian2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house & grounds-guest rooms are super clean with private bathrooms, tea & kettle, corkscrew (which I always forget) & even a tv! Jorge is really cool & will drive you to & from Rio Celeste for cheap. Great place-I'd stay there again for sure.

    Lindsey2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jorge's property is amazing, one of the most beautiful gardens you'll see in Costa Rica. The huge, covered outside area invites to enjoy the view of the yard and the refreshing creek. Jorge is super friendly and helpful. Thank you again!

    Mathieu2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was great! The place is very cute. Jorge helped us with everything we need and was always very attentive to us. Really renting this house is like renting a whole space because you have total independence and the garden is a paradise, giant! The location is great to go to Tenorio Volcano because it is really close and very well located with respect to the center of the small town. Thank you very much Jorge! Pure Life

    Paloma2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at jorges Airbnb. His property is a real oasis and we can just recommend to stay there more than 1night to enjoy the calmness and nature on his property. The town itself remained still quite authentic so it’s also worth staying longer than just for the Rio Celeste Park (which is only 15-20min drive from Jorge). Jorge was very welcoming, helping and relaxed. The room itself is rather small , we still fit in there as a family with 1crawling baby and there is still the large porch where one can hang out during daytime. For one or two persons it would totally be enough space. If this Airbnb is free on your dates just book it- you won’t regret it!

  • Agutipaca is really a great space. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom area is fantastic. The garden is a delight for birdwatchers. The best is Ana who is so helpful and her personal care and attention is above and beyond. This is how to experience Costa Rica hospitality at its best. You felt at home immediately. I would repeat this experience if I came back to Miravalles / Tenorio for sure.

    Michelle2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Es una casa completamente de madera, con iluminación natural, rodeada de árboles, grandes ventanales y hermosas vistas en todos sus costados. Se siente el olor a cedro y puedes estar descalzo disfrutando del contacto con la madera. Se escuchan infinidad de pájaros y casi todos los días se pueden observar monos y otros animales silvestres, desde las ventanas.
    "La cabañita de Cedro" está en las faldas del volcán Tenorio que es un punto intermedio entre las playas del pacifico y la zona de La Fortuna y el Volcán Arenal. A menos de dos horas de cualquiera de los dos lugares.
    La casa está ubicada en las montañas de un pequeño poblado llamado Aguacaliente. Son fincas lecheras de campesinos locales. Hay una iglesia, una escuela y un salón comunal. A 5 km, en el pueblo vecino llamado Nueva Guatemala, hay un par de negocios pequeños donde comprar productos básicos. Si desean encontrar un supermercado, restaurantes, ferreterías y otros servicios, el pueblo más importante es Bijagua. Cerca de Bijagua está la entrada al Parque Nacional Volcán Tenorio y su atractivo más importante que es Río Celeste, un río maravilloso de color turquesa.
  • Hernan and Katia's place is absolutely gorgeous! Katia was so helpful, and communicated with me throughout the trip. Hilda the neighbor cooked us breakfast which was delicious and we went on a horse ride with Carlos (Hilda's husband) and visited their farm. Overall the place with so beautiful and clean and I will definitely come back again!

    Shefali2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This little cabin on top of the mountain ridge was a secret paradise - natural, clean, welcoming, restful, with incredible views - my husband and I were delighted by its charm and reluctant to leave. You won't regret a visit here. Even the drive was enchanting! Pura Vida!

    Heather2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The place was lovely! Very clean, great neighbors willing to help, breakfast and dinner cooked by neighbor was amazing. The view from this place is just gorgeous. Great experience overall!

    Marcela2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous cabin! It is gorgeous inside and out. Well equipped and thoughtfully put together. We had some arrival delays and the neighbor/caretaker Katia was graciously waiting for us to help us get situated. We only stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The drive does require a 4WD vehicle, especially if you might have rainy weather. And if you’re a light sleeper, consider ear plugs for the (potentially very) windy nights.

    Alex2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • WOW!! I have to say, if you want a rustic, small farm town, true Costa Rican experience I highly recommend staying here! Listen to all the tips Hernan has, in terms of stopping at a super market and taking the right road for 2x2 vehicles. We went in a little Honda and didn’t make it the way maps took us and had to go around, but Katia was patiently waiting for us. The tour with the neighbor and horseback riding is highly recommend, it’s like no other horseback riding you’ll ever do & he takes you to a secret waterfall and tours his beautiful little family farm. We were able to see various monkeys, birds and livestock (including a one day old calf). The cabin itself is gorgeous but fair warning keep all bright lights off at night as there are many bugs (big ones) and it can be kind of frightening. The wind was strong our second night so I didn’t sleep well as the food is tin but otherwise all the basics are there and the cabin is just in awe. When we come back to Costa Rica, we will stay here again. Beautiful place with real wholesome people around!! Also the sunset over the valley, beats any ocean sunset, it’s absolutely GORGEOUS! Thank you so much for this experience in which we will forever cherish. I will recommend anyone to come here! A true hidden gem. PURAVIDA!

  • A very small farm on the slopes of the Tenorio volcano, and a tourist project (+2 huts) to support all this: Allan and his mother are at the top of the reception and know their environment on the fingertips, do not hesitate to ask them to see domestic and wild animals, plants ... And without forgetting a great breakfast!

    Emmanuel2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with Allan was really easy and also the check-in was flexible. The place is located in the wild which is super cool to spot some animals directly from the accomodation and Rio Celeste is close by. Just be prepared to also meet some animals. Delicous breakfast!

    Samira2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a haven of peace, take the time to spend a few days at Allan's! No car here - just the sound of the birds and the river below! Allan is very kind and attentive; the breakfast specially prepared for us is delicious! The wooden house is very pleasant to live in; we spent a very relaxing time there! The way to the cabin is a bit difficult if you do not have an SUV but if you follow Allan's advice (come by Bijuaga!) You will get by!

    Justine2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice cottage that reminds of the little house on the prairie. We are calm, we could observe there, birds, monkeys and a lazy! Allan is welcoming and his mother prepares a very good breakfast. I recommend this place.

    Vincent2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A great cabin lost in the Costa Rican nature on the edge of a hamlet with a small typical bar. We were fortunate to see the howler monkeys right outside the cabin and the toucans passing right overhead. At night, great evening with the sound of thousands of insects, birds and especially howler monkeys! Impressive. Tenorio National Park is 5 km away. Thanks to Allan for hosting us. Thank you to his mom for the very good breakfast

    Stephanie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great one night stay! Allan was very friendly and pointed out a few monkeys. The bench outside the cabana was a nice spot to chill and listen to the river and animals in the forest. Also was a nice area to walk around and see the farm lands. Place was very clean!

    Jaimee2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Allan's. The location is close to the Rio Celeste and very remote, it's very soothing. 4 × 4 essential to get to Allan's. The journey alone is worth the detour

    Angelique2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • Pamelas home is warm and real autentic Costa Rican home, a real experience! I got the pleasure to be there during her birthday, loved it. I can recommend it.

    Andreas2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela is kind. She stayed up till 2:30AM to receive us. Through our stay, she was very thoughtful, providing us raincoats and umbrellas when it was raining, local tips, water to carry with us, etc. She even made breakfast although that was not mentioned on Airbnb. We recommend staying with the amazing host. The locality is great for visiting the Rio Celeste Waterfall - it's a 25 minute drive through paved roads. Right next to Pamela's house are supermarkets, 7-10 good restaurants, etc. ... all just within 2-3 minutes walk. Safe.

  • Maritza’s place is amazing. It was super calm and green oasis with amazing garden and lot of tucans around, access to the river where you can swim. Place has everything you need, quite neighborhood where you can hear more cows then cars. Perfect escape to the nature

  • Once in Bijagua, look for Carnes Pincheros in front of the Super El Pueblo and there in the soda next to the butcher you will end up with the sister of Maritza, warm welcome little coffee offered .... we will take you to the casita of Maritza and if you are lucky you will occupy the largest of the houses like us! In nature near a river awakened by birds ... really nice Pura Vida + a small monastery offered by Maritza at night in the soda of her sister. We loved! even if the wi fi is not great!

    Alain2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Maritza cabin is very nice, it has a spectacular view! Everything around is green! And it has everything essential to be at ease. Maritza and her nephew were very attentive and always answered my doubts, and waited for us and took us personally to the cabin. They were gentle and very hospitable. I highly recommend your space!

    Monserrat2019-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • maritza’s place was perfect — it was in such a beautiful location and was a short drive from Tenorio park.

    Zoe2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • When we arrived in Bijagua, maritza met us at the coffee shop and then took us to the rental house. There are actually two houses near each other, and even though we had booked the smaller house, she just let us stay in the larger house. I’m not even sure if the larger house is listed on Airbnb - we were happy to stay there. The small house was next drop and looked nice as well - I can’t give a proper review for it though since we didn’t stay there. The property is really nice, it’s right against the river, and the rooms were comfortable. There were some bugs in the house, but this is Costa Rica and that happens everywhere - they are harmless :)

    Rachel2019-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really charming and well located. A little private garden allows to access to the river. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Tilaran, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    The perfect place in Nuevo Arenal for a couple or 1 person. Wonderful setting in gated community amidst the rain forest. Wake up, look out your window and see the howler monkeys and toucans pass by!
    Very quiet area with jungle all around you. However, one of very few places in the area with fiber optic internet! Ideal for nature lovers, birders, hikers and outdoor adventure seekers. You will be surrounded by all kinds of animals, numerous birds, orchids, etc. There are some beautiful walking trails through the rainforest on the community property. A longer hiking trail is within a 3-minute distance. This is a great area for mountainbiking. It is also a water sports paradise: windsurfing/kitesurfing at a 15 minute distance, wakeboarding and waterskiing and SUP at 30 minutes, kayaking 5 minutes away. Lake access is at 5 minutes in the public park in Nuevo Arenal, and at several other locations (Puerto San Luis being a very nice one, at 30 minutes), but not within walking distance. Pictures of the lake with this listing are for illustrative purposes, to show the area, but are not taken from our property.
    La Casita is situated in a quiet and green residential area.
  • The small house is well furnished and ideal for 1-2 people. A private and protected place in a very well-kept environment and yet you feel in the middle of the jungle! There are many birds to watch directly from the breakfast table ... just magical.

    Katja2020-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great casita in a very nice location ideal for bird watching. There is a small kitchen for cooking and a very nice seat with a view of nature. Sander and his family are very nice hosts. We love to come back here.

    Johannes2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Pierre-Paul2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sander and his wife were extremely friendly hosts. The Airbnb is a Casita in the back of the property that is still very private. They provide a lot of local tips on restaurants and other things to do. It's about a 1 hr drive to Rio Celeste and 1 hr drive to Arenal Volcano. Would stay here again!

    Robin2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pure nature and tranquility. Everything available. Cloths are changed and the waste disposed of. Stunning lots of different birds all around. Extremely friendly family. 4.5 km outside the village of Nuevo Arenal. An absolute highlight. Veronique and Peter

    Veronika2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • That place is the cutest, most welcoming Airbnb I've ever been to. Extremely clean, nice decoration, it got everything you need. The hosts gave us great suggestions for what to do. There were so many different birds! It's just so nice to wake up in the morning, look by the window and see the nature everywhere. It was also super quiet. I felt at home.

    Melissa2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The casita is well removed from the highway on a paved access road. It is really quiet, except for the birds, frogs, and the sounds of waterfalls. There is a nice walking trail the and a forest trail nearby. The unit was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Sander was readily available if needed, and was very responsive to requests. It is a short drive to Nuevo Arenal where there are markets, bakeries, restaurants and fuel. There is also a park in Nuevo Arenal where you can access the lake for swimming. We highly recommend this Casita.

    It is located in a rural area away from San Jose, but close to all the exotic nature! The kitchen is equipped with all the needed appliances to enjoy a great meal as you can see in the pics. It is close to many touristic areas such as Lake Arenal, La Fortuna, Monteverde Reserve, thermal springs, etc. Very, very, cozy!!!
    I have worked very hard on the designed of this place, that I now call my home after living away in El Salvador for 40 years. I worked side by side with the builders to make it happened with a limited budget. All who have come to visit have enjoyed it, I hope you do too!
    It is a cozy place, with very friendly people and spectacular views. It is very windy, we are close to Lake Arenal, one of the favorites for windsurfing.
  • We had a great stay in Mabel's house. She is a super friendly host and cooks delicious breakfast! The room is great and the house really beautiful and clean.

    Larissa2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Mabel's Casita felt like being with family. She has an amazing gift of hospitality and created a sense of belonging for us. Each morning was such a treat to share intriguing conversation and a refreshing home cooked breakfast. The environment in her home was always warm and inviting and her great reputation in the community gained us favor as visitors. We would highly recommend staying here for 3 or more nights and will do so again the next chance we get.

    Graham2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The hostess is a very experienced Costa Rican, she knows the surrounding attractions very well; if your Spanish is not good, you can use Google Translate to communicate with her perfectly; she has a banana tree and a black cat. The location is very close to a lake. Don't miss Wind surf if you have sailing!

    Davide2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Mabel was an amazing experience, even though the house is located far away from some places, it’s a beautiful house with a beautiful host, She worried about us and recommend what should we do, she made us an amazing local breakfast every day and she even facilitate other times for our travel. Definitely a must choice.

    Rebeca2018-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • I was pleasantly surprised with our stay at Luis Roberto’s home in Bijagua. It was very clean and was very private as it is located within a gated lot. The shower was warm and there was a kitchen and nice patio area. We visited Rio Celeste during our stay and it was about a 20-25 minute drive. From the Súper Paika, head north one block to the intersection and take a left. Then your next left will put you onto a street where you can see the gate for Luis’s house. We really enjoyed Bijagua and I would stay in this home again if it was available. We are a family of five, not looking to spend too much and this was just what we wanted. Thanks Luis!

  • Very unique property with multiple rooms and access to the local river for swimming and exploring nature (including a chance to see toucans from our room). Easy to drive to local attractions and get back into town in Bijagua, and we were able to walk to the Tenorio Volcano National Park. The included breakfasts were a great treat and made it easier to focus on our plans.

  • Alexander and Sandra are fantastic hosts and will be lucky to experience their hospitality. We were lucky to stay in the Egg House (sleeps two) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They made a fantastic and typical local breakfast for us, which was exceptional. I wish I could enjoy breakfast from their patio every day-- the views of the clouds rolling across the valley, occasionally obscuring Tenorio, and the sound of Alexander's fountain is a dream come true. These are cabins, so if you expect a resort-quality of "polish", you will generally have a hard time on AirBnB in Costa Rica. That being said, we stayed at THE top Resort in Costa Rica the night prior, and were just as happy at Alexander and Sandra's place (at a much lower price).

    Stuart2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Alex's property is my favorite place to stay in Costa Rica, and on my previous trip I made a 1000km trip and stayed in 7 different areas. The rainforest is so fresh and full of life and the Rio Celeste is magical. Many great restaraunts are nearby and it is not a crowded area. The private access to the river is really quite amazing. There are several major parks nearby, tours of forests, sloth watching, chocolate trees and more. Highly highly reccomend, their hospitality is superb.

    Shawn2019-08-03T00:00:00Z

  • Leda will make your stay at her home as if you were one of the family. She welcomed us warmly, gave us plenty of useful tips about what to do and what roads to take, and, most of all, she took some time to sit with us and chat everyday. Rio Celeste and volcán Tenorio, thermal area and cocoa farms are among the highlights of the area. Leda's house is built in a big finca, you are surrounded by nature but still being close to the main road at Bijagua. The room and bathroom are clean and well organised. There can be mosquitoes at night, so it could be good to have those plug-in insect repellent. Leda takes also care of tico breakfast, delicious anf nutritious. As for the road, it is easy once you get to the Liceo Bijagua. We loved our few days at the Hospedaje! Thank you Leda!

    Godelief2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Finca la Amistad is such a beautiful escape. The hospitality of all staff was incredible and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Dani2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had expected the nearby Rio Celeste waterfall to be a highlight, however, our wonderful experience at Finca La Amistad turned out to be even more memorable! We rented a standard compact car and I will reiterate that the last 5km is challenging, yet still doable and well worth the slow, bumpy ride (we drove very carefully and in daylight only, during the dry season). Initially we opted for the dinners because we wanted to avoid driving on that road after dark. Yet the meals were so outstanding that this was the best choice regardless! With such delicious, well-rounded, and generously-sized breakfasts and dinners, we were never hungry during the daytime and skipped lunch. We were also impressed with the exceptional care and warm hospitality we received from everyone there, even when our Spanish was woefully inadequate. While on the smaller side, we loved the rustic, cabin-like feel of our room and all the comforts we needed were there. The complimentary chocolate tour is a must, as is enjoying the beautiful grounds and the fragrance of roasting cacao beans when Simon working across the way. We genuinely wished that we could have stayed for three or more nights, instead of only two!

    Adrienne2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our Amistad Cocoa farm stay was wonderful. The grounds are very nice and the staff friendly. The farm tour was conducted by Luis who knows the process well and many details about the flora and fauna of the region and their impact on cocoa production. He speaks very good English and some other languages beyond Spanish. I would also recommend the meals on the farm - great food and ambiance. We also did the chocolate making which was interesting, tasty and the bars we made will make delicious gifts... if I don’t eat them all on the flight back.

    Jon2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay at the Cocoa farm. The tour and learning how to make our chocolate were activities we enjoyed and will remember! However we didn't know we couldn't choose what we ate at dinner and how much it cost and we didn't really like it bt it was still okay. We loved the rooms and all the people working there. We recommend this place for your trip in Costa Rica :)

    Céline2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice value if you've got a 4X4 to get there, and plan to visit beautiful Rio Celeste before or after. Outstanding hospitality. A great breakfast. Very interesting cacao farm tour the next day. WiFi worked really well at times and not at others. Would recommend for sure.

    Todd2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say enough about this place! Though the road to the finca is rough (I did it with a small car and in the dark), I thoroughly enjoyed the location, surrounded by nature. It was relaxing, the staff were excellent, food was delicious and accommodation comfortable. Learning about cocoa and the chocolate making process was well worth it!

    Lisa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night at the Finca, the accommodation is very clean and beautiful. The meal and the breakfasts are delicious as well as their hot chocolate! I strongly advise you to stop here!
