There are acres of nature trails for the guests to explore or they can take a tour of the extensive grounds by horse drawn carriage. Bikes and kayaks are also available to rent and can be taken out on the lake from the hotel’s own deck. The restaurant is well known as one of the best in the area and focuses on local ingredients and traditional dishes. The homemade sugar cane ice cream is particularly good! Other activities such as visits to the Turrialba and Irazú volcanoes, canyoneering, rafting, visits to botanical gardens and birdwatching can be arranged.
