We spent three wonderful days at the lodge. Got valuable tips from the host, and enjoyed the stay. Specialities dinner with a good combination of European and regional cuisine, it did to us. The rooms are furnished in a great style.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautifully designed modern mountain lodge. Joel the owner is warm and very helpful. He has great ideas about activities to do in the area. The food was delicious. The lodge is very well located for exploring Rio Celeste.

Hi, the road is very rough so is best if u have a 4x4 car. During rainning season the road could be worst, but is worth the trip. Do please rent rubber boots to go inside the park. Is a beautiful experience.
