This lodge is in a location where you can explore coffee plantations as well as the lodge’s farm. Take a 25-minute drive to visit Nauyaca Waterfalls, which are 262 feet (80 m) wide, and offer a scenic place to swim in the jungle. At sunset, the wildlife on the reserve is more active and makes for interesting nighttime walks. Birds are a good reason to do some exploring in the early morning. During your down time, take a swim in the lodge’s swimming pool.
When you arrive, the staff will greet you with a fresh fruit juice. The lodge also serves a daily snack of coffee and cake. All of meals and drinks besides alcoholic beverages are included in your stay. Meals are freshly prepared and the menu offers Costa Rican classics with a modern twist. There is a full bar that offers wine and a full bar service.
Rio Magnolia Lodge is an ecologically friendly hotel, and because of that the hotels do not come with air conditioning—but rest assured that the hotel’s elevation, large windows, and ceiling fans ensure the accommodations remain a comfortable temperature. Each suite has its own balcony and an ensuite bathroom.

The hotel is not suitable for children under 8 as it is located in the middle of a rainforest, on a steep hill with a deep pool.
We were absolutely delighted with everything. John and Maureen were great. Their staff so patient and helpful. The lodge is lovely but the tourist must truly realize that they are isolated for the duration of their stay. I personally found the walks difficult but my husband was in heaven. I on the other-hand was happy to spend the bulk of my time in the gorgeous pool. Great!
The facility was really a nice B & B. The food was great and the hosta and staff were just great. The terrain was difficult to navigate due to the steepness and ruggedness of the landscape.
