Very nice private nature reserve. 7 hectares including a 0.75 hectare lake with beautifully developed trails and flowers. Covered area has great table, power, barbeque, and huge counter space with sink and potable water. A place where you could stay longer. Beginning 1 Jan 2016, our camping rates will be $10/person/night and $5/vehicle/night ($25/night for a couple with vehicle). An additional note: children under 12 are free.

really really lovely place with new owners- a young Costa Rican couple and their daughter. paid $25 which is steep but you have potable water (filled our tanks), hot showers and electricity and are in a really beautiful location. No WiFi for us since it was raining and doesn’t work? they also have a nice walk around the reserve (which used to be farmland and was converted back to its natural habitat). Would highly recommend.

Beautiful place. The owners Gail and Harry are very helpful. Do call first as there is only space for one small rig. That space comes with electricity, sink, toilets, grill and firewood (but no stove), hot shower. Town and two mini supermarkets are a 20 minute walk away. The owners will do a large load of laundry for you for $8. WiFi available near the main house. We paid $10 per person plus $5 for our van. Not cheap, but worth it to stay in such a gorgeous park (keep an eye out for the toucans(.

Very nice spot for one rig. Large covered area, potable water, electrify, bathrooms, warm shower. Internet only available in front of owners home a short walk away. We plan to cross the border in Rio Sereno about 30 minutes away which is much closer than Paso Canoas border on PanAm. Gail, the owner, very helpful. We paid $21 per night though ($5 entry fee both nights). Long winding narrow road up from Cd. Neily.

Just wanted to update this one, since the original entry was made in 2011. Yes, it's still here, and yes still very friendly spot. Owners Gail and Harry are ExPats from the USA so English and Spanish are spoken. Space for one rig next to covered area. Covered area has great table, power, and huge counter space with sink and potable water. Also, clean bathrooms, now with shower. Beautiful spot in forest, with nice trails, and close to San Vito. Cost was $8 per person, and $5 entry fee($11,200c).
