The tree house is spectacular. The engineering and craftsmanship are extraordinary. They spared no expense in building the tree house. The furnishing were also of the highest quality. My favorite place was sitting in the rocking chairs and looking out at the ocean. We came with our two teenage children and were totally amazed. We were there in early April and the leaves were just budding. The monkeys came right up to the edge of the treehouse to eat the buds and flowers. It was an incredible experience.

Close but far enough away from the major cities to enjoy the beautiful countryside. This is the coolest treehouse ever. Every morning waking up howler monkeys right outside the railing of the top deck. Beach close by Awesome.

A comfortable and private escape, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were immediately comfortable in this lovely house, in an isolated and private setting a short drive from beaches, restaurants and shopping. A well-equipped kitchen and a large dining space added the option of cooking and dining in. The four of us were able to relax together without feeling cramped, and the location on a hill in the woods with a view of the sun setting on the ocean was postcard perfect. The top deck added a spot for quiet reading, napping, meditation or exercise away from the main living space. We'll be back!

Interesting ride to the treehouse. Once there it is amazing from the view to the open air living room and kitchen. It took us no time to start relaxing, enjoying the sounds of the Howler monkeys, doves and roosters. Wonderful experience.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My three teens and I stayed at the treehouse for five nights and had a great time. The place is gorgeous! Local staff were quick to help when a toilet clogged. The hosts left boogie boards out for our use, which was awesome. On-site laundry is great. Kitchen is well-equipped and I cooked frequently, made my morning coffee, etc. You must have a car. Beautiful wild beaches are minutes away for surf & sunsets. Great ceviche at nearby Playa Negra Cafe. A quick drive (45 minutes) brings you to very different beaches, calm and crystal clear, perfect for swimming & snorkeling. (Tip One: if you don't like insects, there are some grasshoppers, etc., around but keeping the lights off at night in open areas helps keep them away. Tip Two: late afternoon may be a good time to catch the howler monkeys; half a dozen of them romped and fed one late day after a rain when we put off going to the beach, such a treat!) We also had an adorable frog who hung out in one of the bathrooms. We'd peek in every day to say good morning. :) All in all, it's a real treasure, this treehouse, and I'd love to go back.

This information below refers to the LDW or collision insurance for your rental vehicle which can be waived if your credit card company covers you for this.

Regarding your vehicle, all the major car rental agencies are just outside the airport main entrance. They each have their own shuttle bus to transfer guests from the arrival terminal to their office. The information posted below refers to the Loss Damage or Collision fee on the rental vehicle. We have dealt with Avis many times and have been pleased with their service.

All the major car rental agencies are just outside both Liberia and San Jose airports. It is advisable to rent a SUV rather than a car. Below is information that can save you a substantial amount on the out of country collision (Loss Damage Waiver) insurance.

We are not sure if this change applies to all the vehicle rental agencies, but it is worth checking with your credit card company to get the letter mentioned below, and take it with you. If you have this coverage, you will need to let the vehicle agency know you are covered, upon your inquiry for the rate.

There is a new change in policy to skip the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW). LDW is a protection that releases the renter from any financial responsibility in the event of collision, damages or if the car is stolen. It is best to call your credit card company to have them email you an insurance letter that that you will need to take with you if your credit card company covers you for this. Amex, which we use, calls it the Collision\Loss Damage Waiver – World-wide Coverage letter. Amex nicely emailed this to us within minutes of our phone call to them.

Avis say in their policy: “Credit card coverage: Some credit cards entitle their customers to decline the vehicle rental protection and use their coverage. We (Avis) will be happy to accept your credit card protection, however you must be aware of the following:”

“Prior to your trip you must contact your bank (or credit card company) and request written proof of your credit card protection plan, where its validity in Costa Rica is clearly stated. Such letter must be presented at the Avis counter at the time of the rental and we reserve the right of accept or not such protection”.

To make your time on the beaches more enjoyable, it is good to have the Tide Charts. The website is
