Enjoy a dip in the freshwater lake or go cattle rustling on horseback. There is a cacao farm down the road which produces some of the best chocolate in the region. Rafting and fishing along the Tenorio River, and hikes to secret waterfalls and natural pools are easily arranged. There are spoiling picnics by day and barbecues by night. Hammocks adorn the wooden veranda for afternoon siestas. Don’t miss an early morning birdwatching tour or a night safari with Donald, whose private reserve is hope to a mesmerising array of fauna and flora.
There are many conservation programmes that guests can join, whether liberating ocelot, puma or jaguarundi onto the hacienda, a reserve for rescued animals, or setting up trap cameras to track the movement of local species.
This is an experience for families or groups of friends to enjoy over the course of five to seven nights.
Open February through August, the hacienda only receives one party at a time to ensure the experience is as tailored as possible.
