Buena Vista is a cattle raising Hacienda that changed part of its activity to dedicate itself to ecologic tourism in a rustic environment conserving the idiosyncrasy and culture of the zone. It is located 31kms from Liberia and it borders with the National Park Rincón de la Vieja. It has an area of approximately 2,000 acres, 1,400 of which are intended to regenerate the forest and where adventure activities take place, always protecting the environment. The remaining 600 acres are dedicated to cattle raising and the ranch produces the majority of the products that the Lodge consumes.

You need to allot a day for these excursions. First excursion was ziplining or hanging bridge tour. You can't do both. I did the hanging bridge tour and if you walk straight through, it'll take about 20 mins. The view from some of the bridges was beautiful. Afterwards, you can choose to go down the concrete water slide. It's about... More

Travelled here as part of an organised Thomson Excursion and had a very enjoyable day. We started with the coffee/pottery/bread exhibition that was interesting and not too long and then went to get harnessed up for the zip lining. The guides were fun and made this very enjoyable taster into zip lining. Next we were able to get changed to... More

We liked, that the lodge fits nicely into the beautiful environment, it doesn't destroy the views and the nature. Ziplinig was fun, they have about 15 different ziplines. The Ziplines are not too fast and not too long. I would have prefered longer and faster ones, but you will rarely find them and I guess, for most people they are... More

Our excursion took us up the mountain range and toward the dormant volcano. The experiences at Buena Vista that I participated in were the Zip-line, Water Slide and hot springs/ mud bath / massage. Zipline was fun and a cool experience. Koati and Howler monkeys weren't so sure they liked humans in their trees.

Thanks also to the guide organized thru Sunwing, "Hoiberth Chav" and the driver "Gustavo". We stayed at the Riu Guancaste, and had no issues with the day trip which involved zip lining, horse back riding, hot springs/mud batch and water slide.
