This area of Costa Rica features a wide variety of tours. A visit to nearby Poas Volcano is a must for anybody interested in geology or just wanting to see an active volcano.  Visitors can actually drive up to the top, take a short walk and peer down into the large crater of this famous volcano. The La Paz Waterfall Gardens is another nearby top attraction. The beautiful waterfalls and tropical landscape attract hundreds of visitors per day. In addition, the Waterfall Gardens has a large aviarium, jungle cat exhibit, monkey station, and insect gallery.

Photographers love it here. They can explore and find opportunities for unique nature photographs to share with the rest of the world. The lodge offers an opportunity for you to plant a tree to leave your own print in the forest and receive a certificate verifying you as a contributor. In the evening come to the dining room and enjoy an authentic Costa Rican home meal, coffee, and glorious view of the forest and butterfly garden.

Wonderful experience. Very well looked after. Only problem was that because there was no TV and due to the remoteness one cannot do much after dark. Having a TV in the rooms may help.
