We had a wonderful time. Wish we would have known it's a bit of a dirt/ rocky/ bumpy road to get to the hotel, but otherwise was amazing. We watched the cows and the horses and donkeys. Our room was beautiful and spacious. It was a bit windy at night, but that's to be expected. Be prepared that earthquakes are...

Coming from pretty rustic lodging before reaching Poasito, Altura Hotel looked grand and plush and incredible. We stayed in a bottom floor room in the main building, and it was almost a suite - there was a kitchen area, a couch / TV / desk area, and the bedroom area, all open to each other. The bed was very comfortable,...

Our room was at the top of the two-story structure and the wind howled all night long. The owner/manager was very nice, thoughtful, and friendly. Breakfast was good. This is a dairy farm so they make their own cheese. We would have enjoyed staying two nights here. Poas Volcano was too cloudy to see the day we had free, so...

This is a hidden gem and if you plan to visit the Poas volcano and park, I don't think you could find a nicer hotel. It combines a beautiful setting in lovely grounds with very serviceable and well maintained rooms. The breakfast was excellent and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The only downside is the track to the...

This is now my FAVORITE place in the entire world. Dont let the remoteness of this location scare you, this little find was well worth it! Its literally 5 minutes down the mountain from the Poaz Volcano. When you're driving in, you may think youre going the wrong way, but just keep going. The gravel driveway veres off to the...

We stayed at the Altura our first and last nights in CR, en route to Caribbean Coast. The owner & staff (all his family!) couldn't possibly have been nicer or more helpful. Lodge is wonderful-- contemporary architecture (designed by son), on a working farm, with a view that can't be beat!
