    We stayed at the Peace Lodge for three nights and it is 5 star, beautiful views, great staff, fantastic tours, good food, well, worth the trip here. We highly recommend going to the Peace Lodge. It was peaceful, the room with the hot tubs and fireplace has everything you would want or need, they thought of everything! Loved this place and it made our entire trip enjoyable. Our tour guide Robin did a fantastic job showing us all the animals and explaining everything in detail. The front desk staff was very helpful and attentive to our every request. The tour to see the local volcano and the coffee plantation was also great. They included a free tour to see the frogs at night, which was super fun. We highly recommend staying here when you visit Costa Rica.
