My wife and I spend three nights here. It was amazing! Luxury in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle. We enjoyed some excellent hikes, whitewater rafting and swimming in water falls! Awesome! The staff and food were unbelievably wonderful. Highly recommend Rafiki Safari Lodge!

We are spending two nights of a five night trip to Costa Rica in the Rafiki Lodge. Can you recommend us some recommendations for the other three nights ? We are traveling with our sons ages 12 and 21.
