Beautiful grounds and glass bungalows.
Heliconias Nature Inn exceeded our expectations in terms of how beautiful the grounds and our glass bungalow were. The breakfast options were filling and tasty. The service at the front desk and the restaurant was always prompt and friendly. If we ever make it back to CR we would be thrilled to stay at this property again.

We loved our stay at Heliconias Nature Inn. The bungalows were clean and had a wall of glass to view the jungle. The grounds were peaceful and well maintained. The restaurant on site was very good and convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

A gem in Costa Rica
This place was amazing!! Highly recommend. We went in the off season, and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The staff is incredibly friendly and the property is beautiful. Not much to do at the resort, but we went for the tranquil setting, so we were not disappointed. Enjoyed mother nature to the fullest. Very private lodgings. Ask for Lizano sauce with your meal!
