Lost in the jungle, beware of the mosquitos ! The wood bungalows are nice, big and well equipped. The restaurant was nice and good. We loved to see the colibris. Unfortunately it was raining so we decided not to use the pools, but it seemed...More
We decided to spent part of our vacation in the rain forest, and choose Blue River Resort. What an amazing experience. Every where we turned, our comment was, "I wasn't expecting that".
We took the horse back trip to the water falls. This is truly,...More

First let me set the scene: we were unlucky with the weather and were welcomed by torrential rains. Nothing to do with the hotel, obviously, but made the facilities become more important than ever as we couldn’t do anything else.
As other reviewers, I agree...More

Hola - We feel terrible about your experience. Some of the experiences mentioned are not our standard and all of us feel very sorry. However, staying less than 24 hrs, could not have afforded us the opportunity to prove you wrong. The awe-inspiring nature and...More
Loved our trip to Blue River. Very scarce wifi would be the only thing a few in our party missed. The beds weren't bad but not the best. The pools feel great, we also enjoyed the mud and walks on the grounds. Food is very...More

We drove from San Ramon for a quick one night get-away to the Rincon de la Vieja area. The drive from San Ramon was about 3.5 hours, so if you are coming from SJO add another hour to the drive, it is about 1 hour...More

I would call or email the resort to be sure. However, they are well equipped to handle the terrain. Most use 4 wheeled vehicles. If you rent a vehicle, be sure and reserve a 4-wheeled one. The terrain after about 5-7 miles drop off to rocky and dirt roads. Kevin or Angelique (his wife) speak excellent English. I am sure they will be honest with you.

I am also a smoker. There was no smoking in the lodge or cabin, which is normal. We had a small porch. I would go on it and smoke either on the porch or in the road. I kept a pop can or bottle with water in it to put my butts so as to not litter and not cause a fire. In the dry season it would especially be easy to cause a fire. I do not remember an actual designated 'smoking allowed' area. As you may know, Costa Rica is working to have its residents not smoke -- part of their healthy life style. Personally I try to be respectful of them and still have my smoke. Hope this helps.
