Preserve heritage is to preserve the origin

Kind people, respectful of nature and attached to Guanacaste´s ancestral tradition; a town rich in history and cultural legacy expressed in their celebrations and religious syncretism marked by Spanish Catholic influence coexisting with the Chorotega indigenous essence. The footprint of these roots is also expressed in our gastronomy, festivities and our particular way of speaking.  
One of the greatest expressions of our culture in Buena Vista del Rincón is our staff´s vocation of service and the way it makes its best efforts to please our guests.

Here you experience the closeness and simplicity of human warmth, simple beings that show themselves as you are learning about their ancient culture in the middle of nature that here we call HOME.

We show and share our essence which fills us with pride.

We Seek What Has Not Been Lost and is Enhanced Over Time
