Rincon de la Vieja
A very special lodge found in a lush mountain setting ending a bumpy 30-minute drive. The Buena Vista Lodge is a rustic eco hotel with clean rooms. You can find horses roaming the green grounds on a stage of pure scenery. It’s an hour from Rincon de la Vieja Park’s main entrance. And its nearby boundary provides a rich spectrum of flora and fauna. The hotel is very basic with no AC, just a strong breeze blowing the coast and cooling off the volcanic slopes that it climbs.
An Ecological Experience
The Buena Vista Lodge is “off the beaten path,” far from any towns. So tours and fun are catered to on-site by the hotel staff for free or for a fair price. Stress is left out of the lodge where families with young ones or groups of friends will have a calm stay far from the world. It’s a working ranch with plenty of forest trails to spot monkeys. Also rabbits, deer, coati and other wildlife while taking a walk. Breakfast’s included with each room and meals with juice served mess hall-style. While bar drinks are taken near a cliff’s border painted by Costa Rica sunsets.
Like no other hotel near Rincon de La Vieja, the Buena Vista Lodge has a quarter-mile jungle water slide for awesome Costa Rica fun. Besides the world-famous jungle water slide, there are 11 platforms with ten cables for zip lining and 16 hanging bridges along tree tops and bird songs. Horseback riding can be arranged for an easy forest stroll. Or have the pleasure of visiting three waterfalls in the area. And when your body claims a special treat it’s time to sink in their Wellness Garden Hot Spring Spa under the forest trees and wildlife.
