Amidst two canyons and facing a stunning landscape, the hotel opens its doors for an experience full of adventure and, at the same time, relaxation. The property owners, who are also explorers in love with Costa Rica themselves, were surprised when they found the place, which was completely unknown to them. They decided to establish the hotel there because they understood the huge potential of the region, located near the Miravalles Volcano and the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park. Supplied by abundant geothermal waters, Rio Perdido’s hot spring pools are the perfect place to rest and end a day full of activities like trekking, zip lines, canopy tours, white water tubing and mountain biking, among others.
SUL Hotels Tip: Once you are nearby, why not visit the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park, one of the many natural parks that make Costa Rica one of the greenest countries in the world. There you will have the opportunity to visit the active volcano that names the park, go trekking and cool down in the clear-water rivers and waterfalls.
Rio Perdido has 20 overwater bungalows built in harmony with the environment. Each of the 36-m² units has a terrace with a hammock and all the amenities you need to be comfortable. Additionally, they are equipped with a minibar, a coffee station, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, iPod docking station, two twin beds or one king-size bed and an extra bed, a sofa and cable TV. Two of the bungalows were designed to meet the needs and provide comfort and safety for people with disabilities.
Rio Perdido’s total area is 350 hectares, but the hotel facilities use only 1% of the land. There are geothermal water pools, a spa with relaxing body treatments, simple suspension bridges connecting the common areas and a nice restaurant where recipes are served with fresh and organic ingredients (most of the vegetables, for instance, are cultivated by hotel staff). The hotel premises also offer support platforms on the rocky canyon walls for adventure and outdoor sports, zip lines, canopy tours and a 16-km mountain bike track.
With approximately 20 thousand inhabitants, the town of Bagaces is the province of Guanacaste, near three national parks and some volcanoes. This verdant region concentrates a good number of crystal clear waters and some waterfalls where you can swim. The region is a finding between two canyons where geothermal waters spring, and its geography is excellent for outdoor sports.
Guests are invited to change their clothes upon arrival to go for a walk and swim in the natural pools along the geothermal water river that flows in the region. It is a refreshing taste of what is about to come. The hotel staff is an expert in adventure sports and has developed an activity called Canyon Adventure, in which different techniques are used to explore the natural geological rock formations, the location’s biggest asset. There are also treks with different levels of difficulty, white water tubing, mountain biking and tours to the nearest attractions, visiting waterfalls and the Palo Verde National Park.
