Posada Río Celeste La Amistad, Bijagua
Amazing experience!
This was a wonderful experience, the meals were "typical" (local fare) And very well prepared. The service here was amazing, everyone was very courteous. The rooms were clean and had small but enough space. There are many mosquitoes in the region, which cannot be helped, but they did have mosquito nets over the beds so it protected us and was kinda romantic. There were a few gaps in the screens from the outside into our room, so we did have many mosquotes in the bathroom and room, but otherwise a wonderful experience. There are several beautiful hikes from this area, one hike is $2usd to a beautiful lagoon area, which was great for swimming.

Posado stay
We stayed in this area to view rio celeste. This is a rural family owned hotel. The grounds were very cute and comfortable with breakfast included and a restaurant for lunch and dinner. The food was good and employees friendly. This is within walking distance to Rio celeste and for a small fee you can use their private path to walk down to the river and swim. it's a walk and can be steep. Make sure to give your self plenty of time. They also offer spa services. However there is no close by night life and no pool.There are some sodas (cafes)and restaurants but when we visited there was not a lot of action in the area once the park closed. The water heat and pressure was a hit or miss and no fans/ac. The room we stayed in was connected to others and the walls were thin so you could hear others and all the animals. If you want friendly service, to get away from it all, rural eco friendly place in the rainforest I would recommend this hotel. However if not I would recommend only visiting this area for a day trip.

Great Location For Visiting Rio Celeste
The room was in a secluded area off a rocky road near Rio Celeste waterfall and Tenorio Volcano. It is a small family-owned facility without air conditioning, TV, or wifi in the room. The owner made us an amazing breakfast and dinner of typical Costa Rican food including fresh fish consada and eggs and Gallo pinto. We called the hotel ahead and asked for a horseback tour and the horses were waiting for us when we got there. We had an amazing tour of the Rio Celeste and even took a refreshing swim in the beautiful blue river. This is not a Luxury facility but an authentic family retreat and was an amazing experience.
