We have had the most relaxing 2 days at Rio Perdido. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and most speak English very well- which is good because my Spanish is terrible. The thermal hot springs are beautiful and relaxing. We did the canyon adventure...More

Best place for a unique and romantic get away. The staff of Rio Perdido are exemplary and were beyond accommodating. Definitely recommend Rio Perdido for anyone wanting a relaxing, secluded and romantic setting. 10/10!

Hi there, Scott. Occasionally, I get the opportunity to personally host our visitors... we'll go out on hikes or special tours that are not "on the menu". The funny thing is that we've never repeated one particular formula and we've always had a completely different...More

Dear GT, Travel without "mysticism" is also devoid of surprise, among other elements that are essential for maintaining a healthy spirit. I hadn't read that word in a little while. You inspired me! Thanks for visiting us. PURA VIDA.
