We arrived at Rafiki after a long, hot hike (and shuttle for the last few miles). Our tent cabins, built on hardwood floors) were immaculately clean and very comfortable. There was a very large, full private bathroom attached to our "tent", as well as a...More
Had we known we could have stayed the night we would have. We were in Costa Rica in August 2014. White water rafting with the Rafiki people was fantastic. It is an absolute must do. Our guide Tjuki was the best. We were served breakfast...More
Really different, fun place. We hiked in and were met with a ride for the last 3k. Loki met us before that when we stopped for lunch at the waterfall, what a knowledgeable person and taught us a lot about the area. We also went...More
We stayed at Rafiki as part of our Backroads vacation. The lodge was really great. The location is beautiful and there were lots of colorful birds to watch from the deck. Loki and his family were very knowledgeable and Loki was an eloquent advocate for...More
It is a 45 minute drive down dirt roads to get to the lodge, and even the drive there is beautiful. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and surrounded by forest. There are miles of trails on the property, unfortunately we did not have time to...More

A travel agent recommended this location for myself and two teens (18/16) for a couple nights. Two questions - will it be hot/humid in July considering the lack of AC? Are the tents buggy? (can you tell I'm not really much of a campler?) Also, what did you do to entertain yourself at night? My kids may go into shock with no TV. Is the Wi-Fi as bad as some claim? I'd be fine without either, but I dont' want to hear endless whining. Thanks!

The Savegre Valley brings cool breezes from over 12,000 feet down to the camp, so it is quite pleasant at night. Rafiki is not really all that buggy. You will find the beaches in the country to have more bugs. We (unfortunetaly in my opinion) have improved the internet at the lodge. You don't have to tell your kids, but yes there is good quality wifi. I prefer to see family play cards, engage in conversation with other families, sit in the hot tub and watch the stars, or go down the slide at night (yeooow!).Let me know if you have any other questions!
