Lonely Planet review

Nestled into the Cordillera de Talamanca, 2km outside the village (just beyond the Volio waterfall), is a private 135-hectare reserve centered around the site of what was once a small finca , on a piece of land fringed with dense primary rainforest. It’s an ideal spot for bird-watching, hiking and splashing around in crisp, clean swimming holes. Day tours from Puerto Viejo and Cahuita can be arranged, as can overnight stays at Aiko-logi’s tent platform. Reserve ahead.
