Buena Vista is a cattle raising Hacienda that changed part of its activity to dedicate itself to ecologic tourism in a rustic environment conserving the idiosyncrasy and culture of the zone. It is located 31kms from Liberia and it borders with the National Park Rincón de la Vieja. It has an area of approximately 2,000 acres, 1,400 of which are intended to regenerate the forest and where adventure activities take place, always protecting the environment. The remaining 600 acres are dedicated to cattle raising and the ranch produces the majority of the products that the Lodge consumes.

This was a great adventure trip to the most dynamic excursion into the rain forest that I have ever experienced. The rocky and steep road up into the mountainous area from the beach I was staying on down in Playa Panama was in itself marvelous. When we finally get to the lodge area. The staff were very nice and professional.... More

Our visit was in the off-season (October) and we left our hotel Riu Guanacaste in a deluge of rain, with LAR Transportes. Needless to say, in 5 minutes of travel the sky had cleared...so don't let rain deter your plans! From the hotel, the drive is just under 2 hours (which we enjoyed), so plan accordingly, to enjoy a full... More

We experienced a full day at Buena Vista Lodge with extreme zip lining, water slide, snacks, coffee lecture, pottery demonstration, buffet lunch, hot springs and mud bath. The only thing we missed was the horseback ride to the hot springs because of a brief pounding rain shower. Guess that means I'll have to come back and do it all again!

What an incredible place! They have it all zip-line, hot springs spa, 1/4 mile water slide, horse back riding and restaurants. The adventures are really fun especially the zip line and the spa is extremely relaxing. The food is delicious and 80% of the food they serve is raised right there. You can't go wrong.

My family and I stayed at the Buena Vista Lodge & Adventure and had an incredible time. This lodge is very family friendly, with tons of outdoor activities such as ziplining, water falls, water slide, horseback riding to hot springs, coffee plantation tours, as well as many dining/lunch options. Only drawback was that the pool water was cold and it... More

Simply breathtaking scenery. We did a tour that included zip line, waterslide, horseback riding, waterfall and hot springs. I didn't love the zip line (no fault of the tour, just not my thing) but everything else was wonderful. Great lunch was included as well. The horses were a bit more rowdy than other horses I've ridden but it was fun.... More
