We chose this place from a list of possible tours on our first trip to Costa Rica. HOW LUCKY CAN YOU BE? On the drive up we thought we had made the wrong choice...the road is terrible!!! but we found out, well worth the trip. The botanical gardens are beautiful, the sauna and mud baths so fun and the hot...

First, brace yourself for a bumpy ride to the resort!! It was definitely more than an hour drive from Liberia airport, but we made it back to LIR in about 1hr 15mins, since we were more comfortable with the roads by then. The resort staff were very welcoming and the grounds are really well-maintained. Our favorite part was the the...

The Blue River Resort is perfect for viewing birds, plants, and enjoying a wonderful highland experience. The Howler monkeys can be heard almost every day! The staff were all delightful and allowed me to practice my Spanish. The food...excellent. I chose fresh fish nearly everyday,and the menu had something for everyone. The adventures were fun - tubing was so much...

If you really want to be away from the city and experience the jungle for few days and still feel in a hotel, this is the perfect place. Just few cabins nice and clean. The hot springs pools are amazing. The staff is very nice. The best thing is that you are steps away from the most beautiful river I...

This property is very rustic, but the cabins were big and very accommodating. There are hot spring pools and a place for a mud bath which was lots of fun. The grounds were beautiful and the personnel were the best. They took good care of us. We went from there to the water falls and on a hike to rincon...

Stayed for two nights and I can only say that it was simply amazing! The cabins are beautiful, and I really enjoyed the hammock on the porch. It was lovely to sit out at night and enjoy a few beers in seclusion. The botanical gardens are beautiful. The mud baths and hot springs are very enjoyable. What a perfect place...

This was with no doubt the most pleasurable vacation I've ever been on. The weather was great knowing it was going to be rainy in the rain forest and hot on the Pacific coast line. What really made this trip special were the staff at the Blue River Resort. They were outstanding!!!! This was our first trip to Central America...

This place is paradise, but you need to drive a while to get there. There are plenty of space in rooms, nice and quiet. I enjoyed this paradise a lot! The restaurant offers great food, not expensive, good price for the quantity and quality. There is parking lot for each room, so you can have your car close. There is...

Blue River is in a beautiful setting with excellent service. The drive there is a little long over a rough road, but it is worth the effort. The food was good and the staff was extremely friendly. I would go again.

Excellent service. Great resort. The staff takes excellent care. Will go back for sure. Loved the hot springs and the mud bath. Recommend the ziplining. I would only do either the horse back riding or the zipline as they both are in the same location. The food at the resort is really good and they take great pride in preparing...
