Hotel Rio Celeste Hideaway

Why We Love This Hotel

  • A romantic, tropical retreat, close to the Rio Celeste waterfall and Tenorio Volcano National Park
  • The large casitas have balconies overlooking the rainforest
  • The swim-up bar is attached to the lagoon pool
  • Bikes are available to borrow, and the hotel can organize tours


Tucked away at the foot of Tenorio Volcano is the romantic Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel. The resort is set along the banks of one of Costa Rica’s most celebrated natural wonders -- the electric-blue Rio Celeste river, which winds down the nearby volcano. Guests will be in the perfect spot to explore the Tenorio Volcano National Park.

The 26 thatched-roofed casitas are surrounded by tranquil rainforest and gardens, and have canopied beds. The spacious balconies extend over the jungle, and there is lush landscape from every angle. The outdoor showers are secluded, hidden away behind tropical plants, and inside there are modern touches, such as complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. Upgrade to a Casita Suite for extra space and a jetted Jacuzzi bathtub in the bathroom.

Complimentary breakfast is served every morning along with Costa Rican cuisine with an international twist at the open-air Kantala Restaurant. Cantina Delirio hosts a daily cocktail hour, and a swim-up bar is attached to the lagoon pool. Alternatively, relax in one of the spa tubs or the on-site lazy river. It’s a short walk to the river itself, which has a swimming area.

Not to be missed are the myriad rainforest trails on the doorstep, and the hike up to the Rio Celeste waterfall and its natural sulfuric hot springs. Bicycles are available to hire, and the hotel can arrange bird watching trips, horseback riding or rafting tours (extra charge applies).
