The thing is that we left on Friday after work to Guanacaste, we had to succumb to the 5 pm traffic on the 27th highway and arrived at Rio Perdido by 10 pm. When we arrived at the entrance the staff received us as if we were celebs, a towel to wash our faces and a glass of ultra-refreshing fruit juice. After this nice welcome, we finished checking in and then went straight to our rooms to rest.
We went to the rooms and saw the epicness … they are rooms distributed in the forest, with a wicked design on all sides and have a balcony with a hammock and a view of the trees. Well, then we slept like babies in that delicious bed and the next morning I got up early with Glori to go for a bike ride on the trails of the property.
To walk or bike there are 2 main places, the first is called Mesa Norte (the top of the mountain is flat and serves as a heliport) and the other is called Las Tumbas (which are vertical stone formations). Then I went with Glori bike to Mesa Norte, we biked for about 20 minutes and it was pretty cool because from this point you can see the coolest view of the Miravalles and Rincón de la Vieja Volcanoes. When we came back to the rooms, I went first and came face to face with an Ocelot! (It’s like a small leopard) never in my life had I seen one of these, we had eye contact for 1 second (maximum) and then the dude went to hide. Apparently, this feline is already known in the area and it has appeared to more than one visitor, we can say that it is not dangerous and it is extremely beautiful … the size is a little bigger than a domestic cat and has the spots of a real leopard.
So … after this moment of excitement, we continued to the room where we changed to go to breakfast at the hotel restaurant… After breakfast (which was delicious) we got ready to do tubing. We passed a couple of cars from the hotel that took us upstream to reach the starting point, they explained here the basics of basic safety and once we got set up with the helmet + lifeguard we dove into the water … The tour is through a deep canyon under the shade of the trees, it lasted about 45 minutes, with some sections of rapids, waterfalls and also relaxed chill parts.
