Where do I begin! It is an incredible place and Herbie and Annette are great hosts. We stayed in cabin number 2 which seemed to have the best views of the canopy out of the four cabins there. From our porch we saw a sloth, green iguana and hummingbirds a plenty. We also saw a toucan in the grounds. The...

We stayed here only for one night as we were passing through. This wonderful bed and breakfast is an amazing way to connect and explore nature in Costa Rica. There is no restaurant and you eat what is served. Which is a wonderful way to enjoy real Costa Rican foods. The food we had was extremely tasty, fresh and well...

It would be unfair to review this property as we never actually stayed there although we did book it. It looks great. Due to a short illness we had to reschedule our stay here. We managed to move our dates at four other locations at no extra cost, although we would have been happy to pay an administration fee. Casa...

Very close to the river. If you are seeking an exotic place in the jungle to stay this is it. Small wooden cottage. Very informative, helpful and friendly staff/owner. Easy to find and still close to Guapiles. Far too expensive for the standard.

Beautiful little ecolodge with a rustic cabin. Cute porch with chairs. Screened in room so you can hear the river, birds/animals etc at night. It was like sleeping in nature. Herbie was very nice & accomodating. We never met his wife as we were only there for the night. Dinner was delicious. Fresh & flavorful.

This was different from other places we stayed in Costa Rica. The cabin had screen windows and a porch that looked into the forest at the river. Very quaint and cozy. There was a fan in the room that worked great. It was a little damp (room was dry) as it rained the day we were there. The rain sounded...

Wow talk about back to nature. Very basic accommodations, cabins have lower wood walls with screened in upper section. Cabins are perched on the edge of Rio Blanco a short but bumpy drive in from the highway. Very clean cabins but sparse, no chairs or table inside the cabin just a bed. The noise at night was off the chart...

Casa Rio Blanco Eco Friendly B&B was by far my favorite lodging during my three-week stay in Costa Rica. The cabins are artistically decorated and are enveloped in thick jungle. Our cabin was above the river. I loved the sounds of the river, frogs, and insects at night. The cabin also had a nice porch perfect for jungle yoga sessions...

After experiencing CR highway travel up close and personal for a week, our plan to depart Puerto Viejo at 5am in the rainy season for an expected 11am rental car dropoff at the SJ airport seemed increasingly risky. After a brief internet search we concluded that there was no other property as appealing as this, priced so attractively, and within...
