The hotel is really a number of small duplex villas with air conditioning and a clean bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The hotel restaurant provided very good food at typical Costa Rican prices. The facility is planted with a large variety of fruiting trees and there were numerous bird species on the property. Nice shaded benches made for a nice birding opportunity out of the sun. Behind the hotel is a laguna (lake) that was low during the dry season. It was loaded with birds, turtles and caimans. All seemed to co-habitate pretty well. The caimans were well fed on fish and not aggressive towards people. If you got close, they ran away.
We teamed our stay with a Rio Frio tour set up through the hotel. After looking for caiman in the Osa area and seeing one or two a trip, it was amazing to see thousands of them in Rio Frio. I'm really not kidding about there being thousands. Hundreds of turtles, lizards, birds and some monkeys were there, too.
All in all, this was a great stop in the north of Costa Rica.
