Prepare to be transported to the lesser-trod corners of Costa Rica, where aridity meets the emerald embrace of volcanic terrain. We journey from the savanna-like climes of the north, reminiscent of a tropical Utah, to the awe-inspiring thermal rivers that flow beneath the Miravalles volcano. With the guidance of local experts, we uncover a Costa Rica apart from the postcards—a land where warm thermal rivers defy expectation and hidden waterfalls beckon the truly adventurous spirit. Rio Perdido stands as a testament to Gabriel’s dedication, marrying state-of-the-art eco-friendly design with the raw allure of the natural world, creating a sanctuary where adventure is woven into the fabric of sustainable comfort, setting the stage for a travel experience that harmoniously resonates with the heartbeat of the earth.
“For me it’s so crazy to think that I get to work and create with an amazing group of people, and operate and provide a product that people are experiencing in a place that I certainly consider one of the top, most beautiful places in the world.”
