We do not provide transportation up and down the mountain, so it is best to have a four wheel drive car for your convenience.

Basically the most gorgeous view you will ever see
Basically the most gorgeous view you will ever see
My wife and I stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon. The view of the lake and volcano are breathtaking to the point of being beyond description. I can not tell you how amazingly gorgeous this location is. We stayed in the smaller cottage (fair warning, it is very small, but it has everything you need and in La Fortuna you won't be spending a whole lot of time inside) and both buildings are beautifully made and the stonework including the pool are amazing. The managers were so wonderful and took care of every little need we had. They recommended activities that were perfect, and sent us horseback riding through the hills to a beautiful waterfall, which was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. The owner of the ranch they sent us to has even become a friend I think will be lifelong for us. The internet was not working properly one day and the manager (who assured us that there usually aren't any problems) went to extreme lengths to fix the issue for us. I don't have anything negative to say at all, but be prepared for the fact that the driveway is VERY steep. My wife and I travel extensively in Latin America and we rarely stay in the same place twice because we like new experiences, but this is a place we will definitely go again. One last note, the restaurant right at the bottom of the hill, howlers, is one of the best burger joints (if not the best) I have ever eaten at, and the owner is a just plain cool guy. Go here, and have fun!

We were a family of 7 (five children). My wife and I stayed in the small cottage, and our 5 children stayed comfortably at the 2 bedroom house which has a very nice living area. The private pool was spectacular! We woke to howler monkeys, a morning swim, before we began our activities. We had a small issue when the rains came (and does it rain!). And Nancy corrected the problem immediately, even thought she was in the hospital. If you want seclusion, this is the place. Downside: the drive up to the cottage scared my wife to death. I took it as a challenge and somewhat enjoyed it (not bumpy, like many of the other roads in Costa Rica, but very steep, and slippery when wet). And the drive two-from El Castillo from the main road was about 30 minutes on a non-paved road, albeit not too many pot holes. But that is the cost of 100% seclusion in a jungle paradise (pictures tell the story). Make sure to go to the eco zoo at night (we ate at the restaurant next to it and were able to hold the famous costa rica frog). and even the butterfly farm gave all of our children enjoyment (which was a surprise). and of course, the zip line is a must (only a few minutes away). But the greatest activity was Lelander and the horse outing. I told Nancy that of all the activities we did in Costa Rica, this was BY FAR the most exciting. Don't think that you are simply going on some dusty road. This is a true adventure, with fabulous horses and wonderful guides.
