In addition to the hotels listed here, a couple of other good choices are by the park. On the Cañas Dulces road, Buena Vista Lodge ★ (tel. 2690-1414; www.buenavistalodgecr.com) is set on the edge of the national park and offers a wide range of activities and attractions, including its own water slide and canopy tour.
Another good choice for adventure tourists is the Canyon Lodge (tel. 2665-3161; www.thecanyonlodge.com), located just 3km (2 miles) inland from the main highway (CR1) on the outskirts of Liberia.
Around Aguas Claras, La Anita Rainforest Ranch ★★ (tel. 8388-1775 or 2466-0228; www.laanitarainforestranch.com) is a remote and rustic yet very cozy lodge, with a series of wooden cabins set on a working farm, on the edge of lush rain- and cloud forests. The area around the lodge is home to several hot springs, and this area also provides easy access to the seldom-used Santa María sector of Rincón de la Vieja National Park.
