Rio Celeste Hideaway

This is an amazing place for nature-lovers, adventurous types or even honeymooners. 

A hidden gem, Rio Celeste Hideaway is in a remote  location which gives it the feel of an oasis in the rainforest. 

The rooms are spacious with outdoor showers and beautiful architectural design.


Rio Celeste Hideaway is a luxury hotel in an oasis of tranquility that provides a uniquely natural experience with stunning accommodations.

Surrounded by lush tropical rainforest, each one of its 26 spacious casitas (bungalows) provides an exclusive retreat in which guests can relax amidst the breathtaking rainforest.

Rio Celeste Hideaway casitas have been designed to provide the ultimate comfort and style while maintaining close contact with the natural surroundings.

With the guests’ experience in mind, the hotel has built a unique concept of individual casitas separated from each one by luxurious tropical landscaping.

Every one of the oversized casitas measures 90 square meters and provides an independent space and privacy, making guests feel coddled and right at home.

Rio Celeste Hideaway is a boutique, gourmet and ecologically orientated hotel. It provides a world of comfort and style surrounded by an untouched natural paradise.

This hidden hotel is located in the middle of the rainforest adjacent to the Tenorio Volcano National Park, where lies the amazing Rio Celeste, considered the jewel of northern Costa Rica.

Rio Celeste is a major eco-tourism attraction with its stunning tenidero where it forms its unique colors and creates an electric blue lagoon with a 30-foot waterfall, all within a rainforest ecosystem that can be experienced while staying at the hotel.

The hotel also offers dry-cleaning, lobby and reception

Our Opinion

This hotel is located one mile from Volcán Tenorio Nacional Park’s main entrance to Rio Celeste.

There you can walk to the unique bluish waterfall and to Tellideros, where the coloring of the river originates.

You are not allowed to swim in the park, but the hotel has a trail which leads to the river. This was the main reason we chose this wonderful hotel.

Rio Celeste has a great restaurant with excellent food, and staff is really helpful.

Rooms are ample and surrounded by mountain tropical forest. Breakfast is included and there are three choices: authentic, American, and omelet. Fruits, cereal, pastries and juices are self-service and also included.

There is a nice swimming pool surrounded by three jacuzzis which you will enjoy, especially on a rainy day.
