Costa Rica Accommodation,
Sarapiqui Region

Hacienda La Isla

Scroll

Found down a side road off the main highway in the Sarapiqui region, the hotel is formed from a converted colonial Spanish cacao farm and boasts a swimming pool and fragments of rainforest, mainly along a stream, in which wildlife can be seen.

The rooms are all differently decorated and individually named.

The excellent Tico/fusion food is a particular attraction at the lodge, imaginatively cooked by the Belgian owner’s Tica wife using fresh local ingredients.

The separate La Selva rainforest reserve and research station can be explored on booked visits. This reserve encompasses more than 1500 hectares including a variety of ecosystems characteristic of the wet lowland tropical zone. It forms part of a much larger protected area that includes the Braulio Carrillo National Park and is particularly good for sightings of three- and two-toed sloths, spider monkeys, peccaries, toucans and macaws.

Facilities

Private bathrooms, hot water, ceiling fan (no a/c), restaurant, lounge, swimming pool and laundry service (check prices first).

Firstly may I say how greatly Peter and I appreciated all you did to give us such a wonderful holiday – it was truly memorable. Great wildlife watching, smooth organisation and a totally trouble-free trip – terrific! We would love to go back to Costa Rica…we had super views of quetzals at Monteverde and also there, two perfect appearances by the three-wattled bellbird. ..With all good wishes and again, our most grateful thanks.
