Cooled by an ever present breeze and framed by a unique dwarf forest, Rio Perdido Hotel & Thermal River is a sanctuary of well-being, and the true embodiment of Costa Rica’s legendary PURA VIDA.
You’ll find Rio Perdido in the Guanacaste province, on the western side of the country. Even though the reserve is just an hour’s drive from Liberia, this rediscovered gem was once a sacred spot for the Cabecar tribes; people who recognized and harnessed the magic of the thermal gorge, hundreds of years ago.
Rio Perdido was designed to be in perfect harmony with its surroundings. Great care has been taken to preserve this one-of-a-kind setting and its precious resources, while simultaneously providing a very comfortable experience for conscious-minded guests.
Spend your days swimming in the abundant, completely natural hot springs, along a mile of thermal gorge that cuts right through the spectacular, 600-acre reserve with 30 bungalows.
Witness a seemingly endless variety of exotic flora and fauna throughout 20 plus miles of hiking trails. Enjoy zip-lining, mountain biking and white water tubing, or if you prefer to relax, lounge by the pool, savour true costarrican cuisine prepared by local culinary artists, do some yoga on our cliff-side pods or visit our spa, for the region’s best treatments.
Rio Perdido Hotel & Thermal River is nothing short of enchanting. We look forward to welcoming you.
Rio Perdido, which means “lost river”, is the centerpiece of the 600-acre private reserve.
