“A slice of heaven ...”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

We spent two weeks in Costa Rica in February 2013 and Hacienda Encantada was our first destination. It is lovely. It's at the top of a mountain, remote, quiet, with beautiful gardens. We saw an ocelet on our way up the mountain the first day, and while there, saw and heard so much wildlife. We loved drinking coffee on the patio in the mornings and listening to the sounds of the jungle, or drinking wine while lying in the hammocks. There are a few good restaurants in town, too - Pizza Johns was our favorite. Nita connected us with a man who took us on a horseback ride to a private waterfall (spectacular day!), and we connected later with another man who took us hiking near the volcano. Skip the touristy hotels and stay here instead. You won't regret it.
