Rio Perdido Hotel & Hot Springs

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Eco-resort in a unique dry forest setting, neighboring Rincón de la Vieja national park's active volcano
  • It's perched on the rocks where two rivers meet and has its own natural thermal springs
  • On-site activities include zip-lining, climbing, tubing and kayaking in the Canyon Blanco (fees apply)
  • There's an open-air spa and three swimming pools with a swim-up bar


Rio Perdido is an intimate eco-lodge reached by a dramatic footbridge, set deep in the Costa Rican dry forest. The setting is stunning, perched over two dramatic canyons just at the point where the cold waters of the Rio Blanco meet the thermal Rio Perdido.

The hotel is located in Far Northern Guanacaste -- "one of the lesser-traveled but vastly rewarding parts of Costa Rica," says Fodor’s-- just south of Rincón de la Vieja (the country's equivalent of Yellowstone Park). The owners are very conscientious about environmental responsibility, sourcing all of their electrical energy from a geothermal power plant, drawing drinking water from an on-site well and sponsoring English lessons at the local school.

The hotel may be new, but the estate is already known for its canopy excursions and adventure tours, including a 50-foot Tarzan swing, five zip lines and climbing routes. Guests can also explore the Canyon Blanco by mountain bike and kayak, or chase the rapids on an inner tube. After a day of hair-raising exploits, sink into the warm waters of the property’s three large thermal pools, or enjoy a treatment at the open-air spa. In the evening, the restaurant serves local cuisine sourced from neighboring farms.

The modern glass-walled cabins are suspended above the ground and sit beautifully in the forest setting. Inside they are just as cutting edge, flaunting polished concrete floors, multi-use day beds, free Wi-Fi and an air conditioning. Bathrooms have polished countertops, embedded with recycled glass and stone, and all have raised terraces so you can admire the scenery.
