          This is not just sleeping in tents, but "glamping" in luxurious safari tents. Beautifull setting. Kind and lovely hosts, nothing is to much for them. Great home made breakfast. Good swimming at Pavon waterfalls. We will never forget our stay in Rio Tico Lodge.

          Very friendly owners/staff. Very helpful. The tents were so luxurious you didn't feel like you were "camping". The jungle at night lulls you to sleep and drowns out any other noises around! Quite a bumpy road to get there but worth it. Would recommend and...More
