Due to our facilities are located in an old family property where our closest neighbors are several yards away, making it perfect to have enough privacy and a great relaxing stay.
  • Mariano is a great host :-) He always helped us and gave us great tips. His house is in a great location on a plantation in the middle of the jungle. It was super nice and we had a great time :-) The property is also very clean.

  • More than accommodation, it is a unique experience that Mariano offers you! A little corner of paradise where you will enjoy the sweetness of life in the tropics. You will be able to observe a multitude of multicolored birds, from the balcony a splendid view of the tropical forest where you will let yourself be lulled by the sounds of the surrounding flora and fauna ... Mariano is a very attentive host, offering local activities adapted to your wishes. We particularly recommend the boat tour where we could observe Caimans, iguanas, birds of all kinds, sloths, turtles, etc. Also the ornitho ride in the early morning when we were amazed! Mariano also has talents for cooking and can cook local specialties if you wish. Thanks to Mariano, Nono and Bianca;) for making us live the Costa Rica we dreamed of !!

  • Very cool guy to talk to. Best host I’ve ever had. My friend booked me a room & Mariano did so much for us. Cooked, drove us, offered tips, gave us free food and drinks. House is in an amazing location surrounded by a lake, plantain plantain, a bamboo forest, fruit feeders for birds & the river that separates it from the world-famous La Selva Biological station. We barely birdied there and still had over 120 species! Even the more elusive Nicaraguan Seed-Finch was in his property. Overall good vibes. Mariano arranges taxi drives, local bird tours & so much more. He even drove us to town himself a couple of times. We had an amazing time at his place which was great for relaxation, nature & good company. My favorite place was his balcony with a overlooking the fruit feeders and lake. Felt like a true tropical paradise.

  • Our stay at Mariano went very well! This was largely helped by our host who is really great, attentive, who loves his country and wants to share his good humor with you :) Mariano brought us out of a very complicated situation with a smile and by remaining calm which was very appreciated. In summary, I highly recommend! Gracias para todo, y Pura Vida!

    Nahia2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect from the reservation to the end of the stay. Mariano is an open-minded, warm and lively person! Her house is very pleasant, the rooms are very large and the garden is immense with plantations and private access to the river. We loved our stay as well as our exchanges with Mariano thanks to whom we learned a lot about the country. We were not transported, he picked us up from the bus and helped us with our daily journeys. A wonderful stay!

    Coralie2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Mariano was great for our stay in Sarapiqui! The place is very beautiful, you can observe all kinds of animals there. He gave us several addresses and recommendations. We recommend it without hesitation!

    Camille2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • A timeless place where you can see birds (hummingbirds, parrots, etc.) and butterflies. Mariano is an extremely kind host. He is very friendly, an excellent cook and sincerely loves sharing the treasures of his country, Costa Rica. He even showed us a place to go swimming 500m on foot ... A river where we find ourselves alone in the middle of nowhere !! Thanks again Mariano PURA VIDA

    Corinne2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two days at Mariano, Nono and Blanca's. Simply magical moment ... The splendid family wooden villa, entirely renovated by Mariano, is as if placed on a small green hill. At the foot of it, a lake, a banana plantation, a bamboo forest, and not far, a small black sand beach by the river, all in the middle of the jungle of Sarapiquí, overflown by birds more beautiful than each other. Chez Mariano, you are at home, in the second. Large, spacious bedrooms with mosquito net windows, a large, fresh living room, a fully-equipped kitchen available with basic products, and an immaculate bathroom. We have never had a host so attentive, energetic and enthusiastic, the comfort and the needs of his guests is at the center of Mariano's concerns which bends over backwards to make our time in this small family as perfect as possible! Mission accomplished with the congratulations of the Jury. Thank you very much for your welcome and see you soon! Pura Vida

The room is nice with some modern touches. I love the fact that the kitchen was outdoors. You can sit outside and enjoy nature. It was truly a sight to see and enjoy. VERY MUCH HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Would definitely stay here again!

  • My partner and I rented a small cabin for a few days as we explored the area. Cabins are on a very private property, but ok to drive in small car. Very peaceful and beautiful. We saw a monkey in the trees about two hours before sunset. They howl in the mornings, too. So amazing! Lots of birds and interesting plants. Comfortable beds in very nice new looking cabins. We would stay again if in the area.

  • We called ahead right before leaving and they answered the phone right away. I told them I was going to arrive at 5pm and due to traffic it was more like 6pm the guard Cesar was there waiting for us even though we were late. He was very kind and showed us the amenities.

  • We were only there for one night, but can only recommend the hostel. It is a small oasis in nature and is located directly on the river. In addition, it is very clean and the team around the hostel was very nice and helpful. Since it is not a hotel but a hostel is the value for money mMn.

    Beautiful cabin in the middle of the Rainforest, perfect for a gateway from the city. Safe and quiet place, surrounded by trees, birds and the sound of the river. Fully equipped and ready for your stay!
    Very close to city center.
  • If what you are looking for is an escape from the worldly noise, this is the place. It is not necessary to travel hundreds of kilometers to feel the nature of Braulio Carrillo at your feet. In this corner of Sarapiquí you can sleep with the cooing of a river and wake up with the song of the birds, without losing the feeling of security. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • We only stayed 1 night and just wish we had more time to explore the surroundings -- but we anyways very much enjoyed our stay. A very spacious home with nice architectural features, a fantastic veranda and a very strong sense of history -- a true Costa Rican experience. Also, Ludwig was a pleasure to communicate with and kind enough to provide a ton of helpful tips and advice.

    Alexei2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house, beautiful gardens and excellent location. Take into account that the house does not have a microwave or blender. Super recommended!

    Daniel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very big and beautiful, great for larger groups or families as it has four bedrooms. It is located in a peaceful quiet area right on the river with a beautiful view. We enjoyed our stay very much

    Nathaniel2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The property is lovely with many different trees and wildlife. The house is older, but very large and comfortable. We were givien freshly laid eggs for our breakfast. Amazing.

    Linda2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise found...for birders. This property adjoins La Selva Biological Station on the Sarapiqui River. We saw over 50 species of birds just over 3 days. Flowers and fruit trees abound. It is gated, has an alarm system, and the caretaker can take you on day or night tours and is very knowledgeable. There is a private beach to swim in the river. It"s a gem. As other reviewers pointed out, it is a bit older and needs some work, but it is a huge house and will take time. We just about lived on the huge back porch anyway. Beds were comfortable, and there were a lot of fans which was important. Ludwig was very responsive and helpful. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    Linda2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful airbnb, beautiful and very large property with a multitude of wild animals and fruit trees around. Thank you to Miguel and his son for showing us around and showing us around the magnificent private beach! Thank you

  • it is something very special to spend the night with Werner and Uschi, It's all like the photos An adventure for us to stay in the jungle, bathe in the river, the bats ... We were happy to enjoy dinner together, it was very tasty Werner has told us so much about the Vanilla Farm, which has everything to do with it. We were allowed to try the cocoa fruit and a coconut ... Thanks again to Uschi and Werner

    Gabriele2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our favorite accommodation from all of our Costa Rica vacations. We lived the adventure. The setting is magnificent, the river as a swimming pool, the terrace with the hammock, the very generous breakfasts ... Nothing to say we loved it!

    Lucie2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a great discovery! What a great meeting! We were immersed in the Costa Rican jungle in these small rustic huts. For nature lovers, awakening with howler monkeys, birds, the sun ... Outdoor shower or swimming in the river. Watch out for the adorable little bats in the toilets (you are not afraid!) Which are the biggest pollinators in the forest. Well located in relation to the reserve (Selda verde and tirimbina), a 4x4 is highly recommended. The welcome from Werner and Ursula leaves us with fond memories. Excellent meal and breakfast in a rare place. The tour to visit the vanilla culture is exciting!

    Juliette2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Werner and his wife are very good hosts. The house is in a beautiful setting, very well equipped if you want to cook and rest, very nice !! It is possible to buy vegetable-meat-drinks for the meal or take it with them. And it is also possible to buy their products :-) go for peace of mind!

    Julie2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay! Werner and his wife are super hospitable and have told us a lot about their vanilla plantation. We are still very enthusiastic! Even after we were afraid of not being able to get out without four-wheel drive, Werner kindly drove up to be able to pull out and in an emergency! Thank you again for the accommodation Traum a dream!

    Sarah2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great rustic accomodation in the middle of his vanilla farm and the jungle. We enjoyed his quiet space, swimming in the river, the plantation tour and sharing a dinner with them! Really recommended.

  • It's a perfect eco lodge: the jungle surrounding the lodge is filled with animals and birds, no need to go further to observe the wildlife! There is even a tour included in the price and it is done by an excellent guide. The hosts were lovely. I recommend 100%!

    Juliette2017-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chilamate Rainforest is a particularly beautiful and refreshing place, the setting at the edge of the river and the primary forest is really conducive to calm and relaxation. The rooms are spacious, particularly well decorated and clean. The hotel team is very caring for its guests and always available to discuss or provide good advice on places to visit, good contacts for bird watching or sports. I recommend

    Christine2017-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Chilamate was excellent! The retreat is located on a beautiful river next to a vibrant rain forest. Luckily we arrived right before the busy season, so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Our first morning there, we went on a great guided tour of the rainforest with the naturalist William who was very knowledgable. Everyone who worked there was very accommodating and friendly. We loved the proximity to nature as well. A plethora of birds and monkeys woke us up in the morning. Toucans and Trogons were easily seen outside of our room. I also love that they are Eco-friendly and very conscious about water usage. We wish we could have stayed longer!

  • Our family loved staying here. Sunrises had the most idyllic vibe and colors. Every morning we were welcomed by playfully curious Capuchin Monkeys, a vast panoply of birds (Toucan, doves, hummingbird, many more... that we enjoyed googling about), an adorable friendly dog, a squirrel, ... We could also hear Howler Monkeys. The 3 beds were perfect for our family of 5, (there was also an air-mattress and a divan that we didn't use). The bathroom is located downstairs but our youngest (7 years old) ones had no trouble during nightly bathroom visits. The bathroom towels and bed linens were perfect and very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and great to prepare our own meals, until we found a great Soda El Kora, at a simply 5 minute drive, on road 126. (Their food is simply delicious and their owners are very friendly and welcoming) We also did the Tirimbina Rainforest Night tour (One of the suggestions left for us) and it was a must do again when we return. We loved our stay! Thank you for making our first trip to Costa Rica so special.

  • Very good address Atipic accommodation in a beautiful setting surrounded by nature, touquans upon waking True happiness, perfectly clean house neat reception Small defect ants tend to enter the house

  • The cabin is only a couple of kilometers outside of the main small town of La Virgin, where there is a good market and several reasonable restaurants. It is in a very quiet and pleasant neighborhood. Yes, there are dogs barking, but the is often the case in Costa Rica. We felt very safe and secure there. The upstairs porch is a great place for relaxing. Everything was clean and tidy, with ample cookware and dishes. As is typical in Costa Rica homes, there is no hot water in the kitchen or the sinks but there is hot water in the shower. The cabin is not clearly visible from the road, so we went to a local restaurant and called the owner who escorted us to the cabin. Overall, a good experience.

  • This is a very nice place to stay, and the host was first-rate

    Edward2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Too pleasant house nestled in a beautiful garden which is very well maintained! The sound of birds around, the calm in the middle of nature, it is the most beautiful house on the way! We were superbly received by our host who was very attentive to explain to us all the functioning of the house, everything was perfect it was really a moment of total relaxation! Thanks for everything :-D

  • Nice cabin and very friendly.

  • Iraides' home is beautiful, set on a nice gardened piece of land near Tirimbina Reserve (10 mins drive) and the Estacion Biologica La Selva (22 mins drive). As previous reviewers have said, it's an inside-outside concept, with the living/kitchen area open to the outdoors while the bedrooms are closed off. I was surprised to find that there were no bugs despite the indoor-outdoor living. Iraides was very nice. The kitchen had all the tools we needed to cook and had coffee and salt, but no cooking oil. The bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. The two bedrooms are divided by an incomplete wall, which did not bother us because our child was sleeping in the other room. We had a very nice time, saw lots of birds, and recommend Iraides' place.

    Jill2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fairytale house in nature. Simply a beautiful place (much nicer than the pictures). Although we did not get to excited about saripiqui itself (a little touristy and exploiting) the stay in Iraides’s cabin made up for it. The road to get to the cabin is unpaved and bumpy, but it is worth it. Be careful entering the driveway, we hit the bottom of the car when we entered the first time. Iraides was waiting for us, showed us around and made us feel very welcome. She had cookies for us and offered up the all-we-could-eat water apple tree in the backyard. We can only recommend this spot.

  • Alex has created quite an amazing little oasis/private jungle with lots of different birds populating it. We saw an iguana and there is supposed to be a resident sloth but we did not see her. They do a nice little breakfast with coffee, juice, breads, fresh fruit and eggs if you like. The “treehouse” wasn’t quite what we expected but it turned out to be a nice enough stay. The highway is extremely busy with trucks going by most of the night and then there was some nighttime roadwork that was also happening. It is a long way from San Jose, at least 2 hours by taxi.

    Katrina2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the tree house and it was great! The tree still grows inside the room. The area around the cabins was beautiful, we saw lot’s of different frog species (red eyed tree frog, glass frog) in the garden, but the highlight was when we walked a small trail behind the cabin and see a sloth and a silky tree anteater! Alex was a great host, he showed us the wildlife, came by for a chat and made the best breakfast! Their river tour is memorable (best tour of our holiday) with a personal approach, hours of floating, a snack, a little hike, a swim, and many wildlife spotted! Recommend this location!

    Jordy2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay in this family place. The welcome is simply perfect, the hearty breakfast, concocted with care and shared with the birds! Our rafting trip was also a great time ... sporty and friendly! An authentic and family welcome, highly recommended!

    Cécile2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay was perfect. Our children loved the treehouse. Alexander was a wonderful host. From the impromtu night tour he gave us of the wildlife on the property (red eyed tree frogs, basilisks and more), observing the wildlife at dawn from the upper deck of the treehouse, to the delicious breakfast complete with fresh pressed mango juice, fresh fruit and homemade bread, our stay was everything we hoped for and more. Our regret is that we only booked one night. Next time we will stay longer.

    Conveniently located and easy to find at the north end of LaVirgen next to the Tirimbina Rainforest entrance, 100 meters north from Route 126 (the main highway between LaVirgen and Puerto Viejo, Sarapiqui. Contact Ken 27610263 The home is a spacious 2 story with the second floor open to provide maximum comfort in the tropical rainforest climate. We have many contact with local activities so we can help you with reservations - ex: zip lining, rafting, rainforest tours, coffee, etc.
  • My wife and my 2 kids (ages 11 and 12) loved staying at this home. The proximity to the rain forests, their knowledge of the area, their hospitality, and their responsiveness are all highlights. The region is much less touristy and that is what we were looking for. But it also has everything you’ll need (restaurants, grocery store, etc). The rental is more of a bed and breakfast as the owners stay at the home and make breakfast each day. Just a heads up if you are looking for a place to yourself. The description of the place is very accurate. I would say that the only downside of the place is no hot water (so showers are a bit brisk!). But, we’d definitely recommend this home!

    Geoff2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable the house. Close to the main tourist spots. Very good attention from the owners. Highly recommended to stay there, but I suggest to go by car.

    Jorge2018-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place. Ken our host was of kindness and an adorable generosity. The house is comfortable and well located. Ken can help you find the activity you are looking for. The virgen is an excellent place where you will have almost all the tourist activities you want but without the tourists of the big place. It is very typical of Costa Rica.

We offer you a true rural experience!
    We have have a nearby pristine natural forest and the possibility to see many birds right from your door. Also you can have an authentic cultural interaction with Marcela's family and their dairy farm just down the road if you live. It is important to us that you have your own space and privacy, but we are also willing to share time with you as a family. Our son Nicolas, is friendly and willing translator for any time language challenges arise. Our casita is new, but we have been Airbnb hosts already for a full year at our friends place in Monteverde. If you are interested in seeing the reactions of our past guest, please look at Monteverde Forest Hideaway from june 2017 at june 2018.
  • Fantastic place for those visiting the Tirimbina reserve and the Sarapiqui region. The surroundings are very beautiful and quiet. With a garden visited by plenty of birds, a local family farm with tasty products and a amazing waterfall nearby, it's an hidden gem !

    Clément2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • A special thanks to Olman and his sweet family. Marcela and Nicolas welcomed us like if we knew each other from years and years. They have a beautiful guest house next to their home in San Ramon. We felt in love with the place and decided to cancel our trip to San Jose and stay one more night. They accommodate my and my friend through out all of our trip from Canada to Costa Rica. Olman was very helpful and replied to all my messages within 5 minutes. Gave us good direction on how to get to their place, guide us to make a good itinerary for our stay in Costa Rica. 100% worth every penny. The home is very clean and have all amenities you would need to cook. If you want to live the live of Costa Rican, this place is amazing. Marcela and Nicolas are very very kind we spend a lot of time together talking and laughing. Thank you very much for this authentic experience. We will come back here for sure.

    Arzo2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous experience. It was like living in the heart of the jungle except all the comfort of home. Olman showed me several beautiful spots that I could never find on my own. It's as if he knew where the animals would be. He is especially knowledgeable on the birds, which my wife enjoyed immensely. The house is very nice and a great retreat at the end of the day. We spent one full day just sitting around the house, sipping juice and interacting with the local birds and listened to the monkies in the distance. I will be back to Costa Rica and I will stay here again. Just a fabulous experience hat I will treasure forever.

    Tom2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accommodation super home I highly recommend

    Nicolas2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Truly a treasure!! Staying at Olman's place with Marcela and her charming son, Nicolas, was an absolute pleasure! If you are interested in an authentic, Costa Rican countryside experience, at the same time as feeling like you are visiting old friends, then this is your place. The cabin allows you your own space and privacy when desired, but you also have Marcela and Nicolas as support close by. We especially appreciate that they were willing to accommodate us with our teenage son. Marcela keeps an immaculate house and is attentive with every detail. She is true example of sincere hospitality. Nicolas is a joy to meet, and you will be dazzled by his English learned with his father, Olman, who is an excellent naturalist guide. Marcela is shy about her English, but really communicates quite well! Olman's communication before our arrival was also very helpful. The property has a wondrous view of the forest with so many birds that I have never seen before, with having spent most of my time in Costa Rica on the Pacific Slope. Just sitting in the yard with binoculars in hand made our visit already worthwhile. Make sure you also take advantage of a visit to Marcela’s family’s dairy farm and the chance to participate in the cultural adventure of spending time with people who embody all of the best of deep, Costa Rican integrity and tradition. We also hired Olman to do a night tour with a focus on frogs that I will never forget. I have been on night tours in other parts of Costa Rica, but never have I been so impressed—so very exciting to find so many of the species I have long dreamt of seeing. We very much hope that one day we can return to visit them again some day, and will hold them in heart and mind until we can.

  • We stayed in the Dragon fly room for few nights in Feb 2020, and it was a very nice experience. The owners are very kind and helpfull, the place is beautifull and perfectly clean. The equipments are in very good condition. For kids it is a wonderfull place with animals and nice swiming pool. Our only regret is that we should have stayed more time there instead of moving from a place to another in hôtels of lower quality. As it is quite close to a lot of places to visit like Arenal, Poas, Sarapiqui areas, it is easy to stay there and drive to the different places. Definitely a place to stay.

    salem2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect rental! The family is adorable, we felt very surrounded, everyone was very attentive, and my husband loved participating in the football match with friends, a wonderful moment of sharing! The place is beautiful, with a lot of advantages that are not necessarily highlighted in the advertisement, a complete experience with, beyond the room, swimming pool, gym, many animals, beautiful Tuesday, and a calm that reigns and allows you to fully rest! Go there with your eyes closed, a wonderful family and a fabulous place!

  • A beautiful property with which the family has fulfilled a dream. Really a paradise! Our apartment was very spacious and cozy with a chic new bathroom. Great window fronts on all sides. We ate dinner with the whole family and received an unbelievable warmth and hospitality. A great experience. Breakfast was delicious and traditional. We took a tour and were allowed to admire and feed all the animals! Thank you and good luck for your future on airbnb! Small criticism: I find the services that can be booked for this a little too expensive.

    Alexandra2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Maybe we were lucky to be one of the first (Abnb?) guests? Hope they can keep their naturality and kindness. The house has a big room and quite a large bath. Very calm situated near attractions of the Sarapiqui. We could have used their gym and the pool, only we had no time for that. But we made use of their hacienda tour, we can propose that: it's fun to feed some of their animals from their little zoo.

  • We had a large pleasant room, with en-suite bathroom and balcony overlooking small creek and lush rainforest - the hotel is in a quiet, beautiful location . We saw a great variety of birds, and peeks of monkeys and cayman, all from within the hotel grounds. Also, a decent restaurant and good staff, nice pools, and short, easy taxi ride to/from town. Highly recommended place.

  • This price actually is for the 3 star hotel, and it is a 3 star hotel in the forest. It takes me some time to find the location, cause the name is different. Better call before you go.

    James2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • This hotel is really top! Easy to find (well signposted on the road). We had a small cabanon very comfortable and clean, in the middle of a beautiful garden. The restaurant is very good and lunch is included in the price. In the evening you can easily observe the frogs and the day a multitude of birds turn near us! We tested the pool which was a bit cold at 5pm (but I said there were clouds all day). We highly recommend this place.

  • If you’re a lover of birds, this is a great place for you. Additionally, the food is good and is a reasonable price (not to mention nearby towns have good typical food as well). We had a great time!

    Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, Heredia Province, Costa Rica

    Casa Sarapiquí is a classical all-wooden, two story house, located half a mile from the main road to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, surrounded by a bamboo forest, a plantain field and a pond, just next to La Selva Biological Station (OTS).
    All though we are admidst the tropical rain forest, our closeness to Puerto Viejo allows our guests to have access to main services such as banks, health center, dentists and stores. Also we can book different activities (rafting, canopy, rappel, hiking, bicycle tours, horse rides, birdwatching) that will enrich your stay and make you enjoy at the most the Sarapiquí experience.
    Our main location characteristic is that Casa Sarapiquí stands half a mile from the main road, where you can experience the tropical rain forest in all its majesty. Due to our facilities are located in an old family property where our closest neighbors are several yards away, making it perfect to have enough privacy and a great relaxing stay.
  • One night stay with Mariano, an incredibly kind and attentive host. We were perfectly welcomed, his chalet is very beautiful and very clean we recommend! Thanks again

  • Where to start ... the host or the house itself. The house: located a little away from Puerto Viejo (5-6 min by car) the house and the whole area (because it is indeed an area) is a real haven of peace. Everything is thought to make the stay pleasant and the situation of the house in the middle of the surrounding nature is like a representation of what an AirBnb should be in Costa Rica. Dozens of species of birds with a few monkeys seen in the trees, the house is an ideal observation post. The rooms are very large, clean and ours had a balcony with a hammock. The host: caring, dedicated and determined Marianno made sure our stay went as well as possible. Beyond the kindness and sincerity of the person, we were touched by the state of mind of the latter who seems to have grasped the whole concept of hospitality but also and above all by valuing his country and all that 'it represents. Thank you Marianno and see you next time, Pura Vida.

  • Excellent welcome from Mariano in a pretty house in the middle of a family farm where we had the chance to see a caiman within 5 m!

  • We had a fantastic time with Mariano. The place is beautiful, with a beautiful large balcony where you can enjoy beautiful birds all day. The rooms are large and otherwise fine. Mariano likes to help and thinks along with you in terms of activities, which is very nice! Definitely recommended if you want to make a stop in this area or if you want to relax!

  • Mariano was a great host, welcoming, enthusiastic, and just starting to make his place a real sanctuary for rest and for nature. We are birders and even on a rainy day we racked up 30 species just from lazing on the porch. The walks to the river, through an incredible bamboo tunnel, should not be missed. Mariano also provided a wonderful meal for a little extra and met our every need, from calls to bird guides to calling taxis. His house is rustic with plenty of spaces to retire to, and it fits right into its natural surroundings. We highly recommend this place and would return if and when that might be possible.

  • Mariano is a most entertaining host and tries hard to help everyone enjoy their time in C.R.

    Gary2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mariano is an extraordinary and generous host. He makes sure we have everything we need. Its location is very inviting and very peaceful. Mariano and his house were a highlight of our vacation. I highly recommend this place

  • Very good place to stay, Mariano is an amazing host, funny guy and always was pending of anything I needed. Comfortable relaxing place. If you don’t want to cook, you can ask Mariano, and he will cook you anything just for an extra tip, I did it and my breakfast was delicious. If you want some fun, then you must ask Mariano for the boat trip which I just loved it, the place is full of nature, you can see birds, frogs, butterflies, and a bunch different types of them.

  • What a wonderful place to stay. Had booked for 2 nights but stayed an extra night. What a beautiful environment. So walk on to the river the overwhelming bamboo forest. Sitting on a large balcony, looking at the lake beautiful birds flew over. Very spacious room, with a large bed. Mariano is a great cook and is ready to arrange everything for you. Highly recommended!!!

  • Mariano is an open-minded, joyful young man who has his hostel under control. He responds openly and spontaneously to individual requests, such as preparing breakfast for us or enabling an extra night. He not only gives tips for excursions, but also organized the individual river tour with a very competent guide. After checking out, his guests are not just history. New guests (like us from Switzerland) also benefit from lasting friendships across language boundaries when they are unexpectedly greeted by a 'Chico' with expressions of a 'Schwiizer-Giels'. This is homey, because in a foreign country, everything is just Spanish!

  • We stayed one night at Mariano's, and it was fabulous. The house is just great, very spacious, with several balconies which overlooks magnificent views. Mariono is a colorful character, all the time serving the guests. They will advise you on all the best addresses, the best places and how to get there. He picked us up without any problems in Puerto Viejo. We talked with him all evening and had a great time!

    Florent2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great little stay at Mariano's. He is very welcoming and accommodating, his home is very clean and authentic, we really felt good and immersed. The top. Thank you Mariano we are happy! :)

  • Mariano’s place was so much more wonderful than we could ever have imagined. He exceeded our vision of hospitality, warmth and bright energy. 1) The Room - and the house itself is spacious, rustic and comfortable with thoughtful touches. There is a gorgeous large balcony on which we had our morning coffee and sunset tea, with beautiful views of Mariano’s plantation. 2) Location - 7 min drive to centre of Sarapiqui, however as backpackers we thought it would be tricky. Mariano did all he could to arrange transport, and even picking us up from the bus station, organising some of our activities and always being available for help. 3) Surrounding area - stunning, relaxing and peaceful. The grounds are bird watching paradise. On our first morning we watched three Macaws having a chat!! Mariano told is we could walk through the enchanting bamboo forest and visit the private beach to swim in the river! We also did an AWESOME rafting tour which Mariano recommended and had a blast. Overall, book and don’t think twice!

    Anna2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend. Exceptional hospitality. Very pleasant. Very clean, comfortable bedding. He forces himself to pronounce a few words in French and speaks English very well. Very large and pleasant house. I would return with pleasure.

    Richard2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mariano is immediately very familiar and friendly. He will do everything for his guests. The house is beautiful and the surroundings beautiful, in particular the beach which we access through the bamboo forest. Great for a friendly moment!

    Céline2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Hoi would tame It was a great experience for me, it is very clean and the surrounding area is super gsi. Although the surroundings do not have much to offer, the de Mariano does not want to make an unforgettable stay. He knows a lot about Lüt, he even chances to shop in the supermarket discount, but he also knows a lot of tips for witeri rice. He fulfills your every wish
