La Quinta was one of my favorite places to stay while in Costa Rica. The rooms were large with a large porch on the side. The setting was spectacular with great landscaping, ponds and gardens. In the morning they put out food for the birds and we saw so many gorgeous birds. They had a nice pool that was a bit cold and shady but felt good after a hot day. We did the tour of the leaf cutter ant farm they have set up on the grounds. It was well done and fascinating, not to be missed. It was the perfect location for our whitewater rafting trip on the Sarapiqui River, just a couple of minutes away. The meals were buffet style which I liked because I could pick and choose what and how much I wanted. Everything was tasty. I recommend this hotel.

Larry and I got up at 6:30 to go birdwatching with Rayner. It was actually just going to the courtyard of the hotel where they have a bird feeder made of dead tree limbs with nails in them. They put papaya, pineapple and plantains on the nails. When the man came out to put out the fruit the birds started putting up quite a racket. They knew what …
After clearing our bill at La Baula for all the activities we took the hour boat ride back to the point where we change transportation.
So 30 minutes of pothole dirt road and then 2.5 of good road and then 2 hours over 13 kms of what is essentially a very muddy secondary forest road. On a wagon bed. Being pulled by a tractor. The tractor driver was very skilled. Because the roads are so muddy and hilly (Costa Rica is very very hilly) there was a few points ...
... birds and then a Tamandua, or Anteater, up a tree. Kevin is an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, one of the best ever!
The next day we took a guided walk in La Selva. It might have proved a disappointment as we had been expecting to be a group of three (Matthias, a young man from Denmark who was also staying at AndreaCristina came with us) but in fact they put us together with a group of six from the US comprising grandparents, parents and ...
This morning we left our hotel on foot and walked a short way to the former cacao plantation now called Tirimbina Biological Reserve, where we had a beautiful rainforest walk and learned all about chocolate!
Our hosts for the chocolate portion of the morning were a bright young biologist named Valeria, and her colleague ...
