In San Bernardo de Bagaces lowlands, in our Guanacaste Province, there is an incredible and maybe called “the only one” for many visitors. Its name is “Río Perdido Hotel & Thermal River.”
In the rainy season, when all the foliage is plentiful and green, the canyon practically disappears from the eyesight. In addition, a bird flying over the same canyon could not be seen due to the plentiful river’s camouflage. It is indeed a lost river… This is the origin of its name: “Río Perdido” (Lost River).
This natural treasure was greatly inspiring this project’s development. Several years were dedicated to work in order to make this place accessible to the visitors in a sustainable way in which its natural beauty would be never endangered. It joins all the key elemental services in one main building, with three areas that cover less than the 1% of all the nature reserve. It uses almost all the existent trails, avoiding the deforestation. Next week, we will be back with the second part of this interesting project.
