San Francisco, California

There are 12 individual lodges built up on stilts with 40 double rooms. It is a pod-like structure with four rooms per pod and long, elevated, and covered walkways between pods. There are also five bungalows that sleep four guests each. Each room has a balcony and hammock to enjoy the natural sounds of the forest and frequent rain storms.
Rooms were spartan but adequate. Each had its own bath.
The grounds are partially landscaped and had natural rainforest.
Usually it is a stop for large tour groups and small conferences, but we stopped in and there were only five or six other families there; until the last day when a very large bus load of people came in.
The activities included guided nature walks in the primary and secondary forests, birding, butterfly gardens, rafting, boating on the Sarapiqui, swimming, horseback riding, and a learning center.
Buffet meals were served in a dining room with a nice view of the river.
