The hotel is quite difficult to get to, with over 15km of severely unpaved road, but we had a rental 4x4 and took it all in stride. On the positive side, it is only a few kms to the national park entrance. Had we more time, we could have even walked it. The bungalow we stayed in was not large...

We ate here as part of our Rio Celeste hike tour. It was delicious and fast. Large amount of food. We had typical casados and while it was nothing too different than what we had elsewhere it was still very good!

Traveling as a group of four , we booked two rooms, both with hammocks in front of the door and the garden around. Spotless clean ,comfy beds and with a good equipped and...

We spend 3 nights at Rio Catarata Celeste and overall it was an everage stay. Our "room" was a private bungalow and it was nice located - but a bit small and it has no garderobe. The bathroom was OK, the bed should be a double-bed but it's nearly too small. The food was also OK, but no highlight. The...

Our family (two adults, three teens) spent two nights here. We speak/write almost no Spanish, so settling details/getting directions in advance were a bit challenging at some points, but that's part of getting a bit off the beaten path. When we arrived, we found our rudimentary Spanish, combined with their basic English and a lot of gestures, worked just fine....

My stay here was amazing. We showed up with no reservations, don't recommend you do that, and we met the owner who was very kind. There was a mix up with the vacancy and we ended up getting the villas for the double room price. Family owned business, I recommend you take the tours with them to Rio Celeste. Food...

We stayed here for one night to hike Rio Celeste. After an adventurous 20km on a rocky road (if you plan on driving here in a rental car, make sure it's 4WD!) we arrived and were welcomed by a wonderful staff. They gave us fresh juice and gave us a quick tour of the lush gardens and showed us to...
