Owner description: Buena Vista is a cattle raising Hacienda that changed part of its activity to dedicate itself to ecologic tourism in a rustic environment conserving the idiosyncrasy and culture of the zone. It is located 31kms from Liberia and it borders with the National Park Rincón de la Vieja. It has an area of approximately 2,000 acres, 1,400 of which are intended to regenerate the forest and where adventure activities take place, always protecting the environment. The remaining 600 acres are dedicated to cattle raising and the ranch produces the majority of the products that the Lodge consumes.

I was on a mission to find some lovely Hot Springs in the area on my healing journey. The facility was beautiful! However I was gravely disappointed by the water in the pools. I don’t think there was any trace of minerals in the pools and honestly they looked like chlorinated highly filtered swimming pools that I can swim in back in the United States. There was absolutely no hint of sulfur or minerals and I just think that’s a disappointment.

I was able to visit a nearby facility immediately afterwards and was much more impressed by the quality of the healing waters. Again the architecture was brilliant but the actual product was lacking.

We booked a one day trip through our hotel to buena vista. The tour guide Cero was wonderful. Learned a lot about history of Costa Rica during the drive there. Great zip line, water slide, very good food, coffee is great, horse back riding and then hot springs. Price is very very reasonable. Please remember to tip your tour guide and people who work there. Very nice welcoming environment. You do so much during the visit. Highly recommend. Oh.. they also take lots of pictures for only $40. Per family. Great memories..

The views were amazing to start, then we took a horse back ride to hot springs where we got to take a mud bath and use the sauna... next we got to do a cultural tour and enjoyed the best little snack and coffee. Our tour guide Lenin was the best and made sure we didn't miss out on anything. Next, we did the crazy water slide and Lenin even convinced me to do it when I was nervous. I don't regret it one bit! So fun and saw an adorable coat while walking up to the slide. We then had a yummy lunch. Next, daughter and her dad did the zip line and loved it! My daughter is only 9, so brave, I bailed on that but got to do the hanging bridges and learned more about the area and Costa Rica from our guide.

We really enjoyed our time at Buena Vista and I would truly urge anyone in the area to check this place out.

Purchased a package from the Riu hotel to Buena Vista. It included Zip lining, horseback riding, huge cold water side with natural water and mud baths. Zip line has 10 stops all the way from the top. Once you do the 1st one you’ll be fine. My 10 year old daughter loved it and wanted to do it again. It was my 1st time too zip lining and I have to admit that I was super scared. Faced my fear and did it and loved it. Looked down even though they said not too but it was well worth it. Horseback riding was fun but too hot outside and took about 45 minutes to get to the mud spa. Spa was incredible including the sauna and natural spring water. I would definitely do this again!!
