Treetops Inn

International in Refugio Nacional de Fauna Silvestre Ostional

Jack and Karen Hunter are renowned for their decadent five-course candlelit dinners (reserve one day in advance), potent piña coladas, fresh-picked mango margaritas, and their engaging storytelling. The prix-fixe meals feature the best of local ingredients, especially seafood and tropical fruit. It all takes place on a shaded deck with marvelous views of the forest canopy and the ocean beyond.

The couple also rents out two rooms – one that is actually in the treetops, and another bungalow on the beach. Located about 8km north of Ostional in the village of San Juanillo. Cash only.
