Tropical climates also contribute greatly to biodiversity, and nature lovers will be amazed at the sheer number of various flora and fauna species found in the region. Moreover, a great deal of Costa Rica's land is located in protected areas as well as in national parks. The Corcovado National Park is renowned by scientists all over the world because of the incredible amount of biodiversity that is contained within its borders. Costa Rican waters are among the cleanest in the world, which is why restaurants serving local seafood are popular with those seeking special culinary experiences.

    The Harmony Hotel

    Guiones Beach, Nosara - Map
    Each day at Harmony Hotel began with coffee made in my room and then enjoyed on the private outdoor deck where I could sit comfortably and check my work online. Around 6:30 AM, I would then proceed to the surf board checkout stand, sign out a board and then walk the private path to Playa Guiones and paddle out with all the other locals. Great, long rides in warm, clear water beneath the warm morning sunshine. Back to Harmony to shower off on the private deck of my room, and then breakfast at the Hotel....delicious. The Staff is very friendly. A little nap poolside before Yoga class and then meet friends in the spacious, relaxed Juice Bar. Thanks to David and Eduardo who were very kind and helpful.

    "Great Hotel!!"
    My sister and I stayed at this resort last week and it totally exceeded out expectations! The hotel was clean, staff was very accommodating and the food was exceptional! The only complaint might have been the lack of variety in music being played during the day- literally, only 2 tapes. ( And one of them sounded like funeral music.) This is an excellent resort located in a beautiful part of Flamingo Beach- we'll be back!

    "Location in heart of San Jose"
    Weather was good, enjoyed walking to museums, restaurants. Interesting hotel design, not the norm but very pleasing and comfortable with a little rustic appeal. Room was spacious and cleaned very well. Hotel does exchange some money. (US and EU). A lot of places/restaurants/cab take USA dollars but make sure you have small denominations, $5 and $1, nothing over $20. I used credit card mostly for shopping and restaurants. Was solo for a couple of days and did not feel unsafe. Like all tourists spots around the world beware of pick pockets. Keep wallet/ passport secure. Enjoyable time, people friendly.

    Friendly place with most staff speaking/understanding English. Entire country is environmentally aware and realize, via government policy, that tourism is their No. 1 priority. Took 3 tours; staff knowledgeable of specific flora and fauna and answered all questions. Drivers courteous and knowledgeable about their country, which is quite clean! Traffic heavy at most times; diesel smell is strong.

    "Amazing resort"
    We stayed for a few days at the end of April 2016. The rooms were luxurious. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the turn down service truly appreciated. The view from one of our rooms gave us a breathtaking view of Arenal Volcano. The service was excellent. Orlando was helpful and made an impression on our family. We ate at Ave de Paraiso buffet and Los Tuscanes Restaurant a la carte and enjoyed both. Our most favorite part was the Hot Springs and pool. We were blessed to be there on a clear day and had a great view of the Volcano while we enjoyed the different hot spring areas and finished in the pool enjoying the swim-up Wet Bar

    "Personal Attention"
    From the moment we arrived at El Silencio del Campo until the time we left any question, problem,or help that we needed was quickly addressed with incredible personalized service. I have never felt so well taken care of. Whether was requesting extra pillows, arranging a tour, information about the local area, restaurant suggestions, or obtaining a taxi it was all taken care of quickly and with a smile and thoughtful asssistance, We're amazed at how well Eliomar and the staff always juggled so many different things at onetime. The entire staff did an incredible job in making El Silencio Del Campo such a warm welcoming and beautiful place. The cabins were spacious, lovely, peaceful and well kept surrounded by local plants. Watching the birds feeding while eating breakfast was a special treat as well spending time in the thermal hot springs after a busy day. Our trip to Costa Rica was one that we'll treasure.
