We had two cabins here and rustic is what they are. There is plenty of space and when the rain drops parted for us, the scenery over the tree tops and the walk down to the river were worthwhile. Annette and Herbie are kind and helpful. We had a few problems and they did their best to rectify the situation....

I was there with my family during the low season (October) and we had the best time. Owners are very friendly and made sure we were taken care of. All of the cabins are private and you are literally right in the jungle. The proerty is fenced in so we felt very safe. They have a path down to a...

Great place to visit. Very nice cabins with a beatifull view over the rain forest canopy. What way to wake up in the morning and relax in the afternoon watching the toucans just in front of the veranda. Nice swimming pool in the river. Very friendly and helpful owners.

The owners are a very sweet couple. The cabins are rustic with great porches to sit and listen to the river which runs down below or the birds and bees. The hike to the swimming hole is a good way to cool off and have some fun. The optional costa rican dinner cooked by Annette was delicious and breakfast is...

Found this place when we were planning to drive ourselves towards Tortuguero and was looking for a place close to the boat dock at La Povana. Casa rio blanco is about 1-1.5 hours way. It is a very beautiful and unique place. They have wooden cabins facing the forest over the river. The cabins do not have glass windows just...

We turned up late, without a reservation, tired and hungry. Within minutes we'd been welcomed in shown a gorgeous little room, had a shower and been cooked for. Nothing could have been too much trouble for the generous hosts who made us feel so welcome. One of the owners even took the time to take us out the next day...

My wife & I stayed here our first night in Costa Rica on our way to rafting the Rio Pacuare and onto the Caribbean.

My husband and I recnetly stayed at this beautiful place. We initially were going to stay 2 nights and we ended up staying 4 nights.

This was the one disappointment of our trip. Casa Rio Blanco is at least a half of a mile down a very bumpy road, a long ways from anywhere. You really need a car to stay here. It's sets in an area up above the Rio Blanco river with lots of trees around. We had an amusing ride to our...
