I am so glad we chose to stay at this lovely hotel which is so close to Rio Celeste. The hike to the waterfall and the waterfall itself is not to be missed -- first time visitors will want a guide for a more educational experience. The drive here isn't nearly as bad as some make it out to be....

The name says it all - "Hideaway" which I thought we'd never make it to. The road leading to the hotel was unpaved and challenging if you're not driving a 4x4 wheel vehicle. Discouraged at times on the way up the mountain but hotel signs every few hundred feet kept us going. I have to say, this was my favorite...

Getting there is not exactly easy, but it's totally worth it! It's a long drive from San Jose. At some point after Liberia, in the vicinity of Bijagua, you'll start driving through dirt and rocky roads. Preferably, drive a 4x4, a smaller car will make it but it will suffer - and you as well. We got there, were greeted...

Per the recommendation of a coworker, we stayed at the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel. After the drive to the hotel, it was very obvious as to why they had HIDEAWAY in the name. It was so off the beaten path, you would never guess that a gorgeous hotel property lay at the end of the dirt road. It was definitely...

I was absolutely blown away by this hotel. It was so intimate, well-staffed and gorgeous. The small casitas (bungalows) are extremely roomy (huge actually), very well decorated and also boast a lovely outdoor shower in addition to the in-bathroom shower with jacuzzi. The 30 minute walk to the Rio Celeste from a path that starts within the hotel is an...

One of the most amazing hotels I have ever stayed at. The room was gorgeous and exquisitely decorated. Really adored the outdoor shower and our deck that overlooked the rainforest. Was great to be able to access the Rio Celeste river via a short hike from our room. The resort is truly magical, and we had a very relaxing, enjoyable...
