We stayed in the Lodge for one night, but the bordering natural resort and the volcano offer enough attractions for a few more nights.

They have free internet and a nice swimming pool as well as a good cocktail bar.

The only drawback were the geese and the wood grouses that ran around in front of our room. They were very loud in the morning and therefore woke us up pretty early.

One more thing: Don't drive there without a 4WD car. If it says dirt road - it's not compareable to an European or American "dirt road" - it's much worse!!! But that's the fact in the whole country (check my "getting around" tip).

Unique Qualities: Nice surroundings

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: From Liberia drive 5 kilometers north and turn right at the entrance to Curubande/Rincon de la Vieja National Park. It is 15 kilometers on a dirt road to the gate at Hacienda Guachipel.
Price: US$20-40
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
