If you are looking for luxury at luxurious prices, stay at one of the swanky lodges down the road. If you are looking for spectacular vistas, tranquility, and solitude, stay at Cloud Nine! The cabins is rustic, but comes with everything you need. Think Wellies (a must), telescope for viewing the dizzying array of stars, tent, sleeping bags, condiments, paper products, bug spray... We saw toucans, hummingbirds, orenpendolas, and the beautiful white hawk right from our porch. As other reviewers have advised, do hike Tenorio National Park. You'll get a work out, but it is doable and the pay off is worth it. Also, you will enjoy the horseback tour with David immensely. He and his family are lovely, and swimming in the Rio Celeste is off the chain. We also highly encourage taking the tour of Finca Verde. Jesus is an amazing guide with a palpable love of nature. We saw Howler monkeys, numerous Sloths, butterflies, and a stunning red eyed tree frog that Jesus worked tirelessly to find just because he knew "how much it would mean" to me! As everyone has mentioned, Nelson, the caretaker, is great. He checked on us everyday. We are in Nosara now, but wish we could have remained at Cloud Nine forever. Gracias, Taina and Robert. Pura Vida.
