The Cabinas La Rivera is located in La Garita de Alajuela, Costa Rica. There are four different routes that you can take to reach Arenal from San Jose. The most common route that you can take is the Blue Route. Cruise through the Panamerican Highway 1, headed north towards the airport. Then, you have to get off the road before you arrive at the first bridge located on your right. You then follow the road signs until you reach Heredia downtown. Once you reach the busy downtown, follow the road signs that will lead you to the Barva de Heredia. In Barva de Heredia, the first thing that you will see is a soccer field on your right, and a church on your left. Keep on heading straight until you reach the town of Birri-Roble; keep going until you reach Varablanca. Once there, turn right at the gas station. This road will lead you to the Cariblanco and San Miguel. Once you reach San Miguel, just keep following the signs that will lead ot Aguas Zarcas, Muelle, Tanque, and at last to La Fortuna.

The Cabinas La Rivera is breath-taking. There's just no other way to describe it. The cabins are comfortable and warm and more importantly, quiet. The staff are really nice and friendly. The garden is so beautiful with the different flowers and trees. But the bird enthusiast in me really delighted in the many birds that visited the place while I stayed there. A real hidden treasure!
