We are located at the foothills of The Miravalles Volcano, an andesitic stratovolcano in Costa Rica. The caldera was formed during several major explosive eruptions that produced voluminous dacitic-rhyolitic pyroclastic flows between about 1.5 and 0.6 million years ago. The only reported historical eruptive activity was a small steam explosion on the SW flank in 1946. High heat flow remains, and Miravalles is the site of the largest developed geothermal field in Costa Rica.
MIRAVALLES - A SLEEPING GIANT
Miravalles has been sleeping for centuries, no explosions, no geysers or other good volcanic stuff, except for a small steam explosion in 1946. However, if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle, you would find the trip worth taking. The road passes through beautiful country and offers super views of Lake Nicaragua. The area around the volcano, the Miravalles Forest Reserve, is home to cloud and moist forests filled with rivers, waterfalls, hot springs and innumerable plant and animal species. Costa Rica’s only geothermal power plant is at the foot of the Miravalles Volcano. Now the Region also has a huge Wind Farm developed by the Germans and a Solar Plant developed by the Chinese.
LOCATED IN THE PROVINCE OF GUANACASTE
Our spectacular Ailanto Mountain Reserve is located in La Fortuna de Bagaces, 21 miles outside of Liberia in an east-southeast direction; the Guanacaste province has a hot, dry climate plus beautiful pale sand beaches. We are at 1969 ft (600m) above sea level thus our climate is more tempered and spring like.
We are surrounded by 28,840 acres of pristine forest (10,850 hectares) and land that is the Miravalles National Park.
HOME TO NATURAL AND ARCHEOLOGICAL TREASURES
Miravalles Protected zone includes the edifice of the Miravalles Volcano, which has no record of activity, and the very well conserved moist forests, very moist forests and cloud forests covering its lower slopes. The Miravalles is a very complex stratovolcano 2,028 m high with six eruption points at its peak. On its western and southwestern flanks there are lava flows. At the foot, in the southwestern part, in Las Hornillas, which is accessible by the paved road from our place you can see interesting examples of hydro-thermal activity. Some of the oldest Pre-Hispanic archaeological remains in the country have been found in this area.
Needless to say we are in the midst of a highly desired tourism area and we would love to share it with you

This is our only ever bad Airbnb experience and could not have been worse. Directions were contradictoy so we struggled to find it and when we did would have left if it was not nearly dark. The bed linen was dirty and torn, the whole place dirty and smelt of dogs. There was no privacy as no curtains in the living area and no bathroom door! Kitchen utensils we're lacking and cutlery and crockery dirty, we had to boil water to clean it all before using.The whole site felt derelict and was dirty and unkempt. The owner describes it as rustic but it was dirty and unsafe, we could not possibly stay a second night but the host refuses to acknowledge that the listing is not as described and refuses to give a refund. Please do not make the same mistake as we did and do not stay here.
I did not stay at BriBri as it was far below my expectations. The floors in the cabin where I was to stay had just been treated with a product which gave off noxious fumes. My overall feeling of the place was that it was dirty. The owner called it rustic. Had one been paying $15 per night and viewed it as camping, I would agree. I have never walked away from a place due to condition, this is a first. I was told my money would not be refunded. I didn't care at this point. I must say that the owner was very helpful in finding me a new place to stay. I must also note that I paid him for his "taxi" services, $50 to get there and $40 to get to a new hotel. Also, one has to have a car. Nothing is in walking distance.
El alojamiento no es tal y como lo presenta la foto, digamos que debe de tratarse de una foto antigua. Algunos aparatos no funcionan : el micro-ondas y el calentador de agua para la ducha. El aseo del lugar no era realmente óptimo. El material de cocina es vetusto.
El lugar en sí es salvaje, pero está bastante abandonado. No llegamos a disfrutar las aguas termales por falta de tiempo.
Tras constatar el desfase evidente entre la presentación que se da del lugar en internet y la realidad decidimos llamar a Hugo para negociar una tarifa más baja (que los 50 $/noche), y la obtuvimos.
The space here is beautiful - nestled in the jungle. There is natural hot springs within a short hike and Hugo is very accommodating. We had some difficulty finding the place from Fortuna but hitched a ride with some locals - if you go around asking for Dr Hugo someone is bound to know him/how to get there. We had difficulty reaching him by phone during our adventure there but once we made it felt right at home. He cooked us dinner and there was a movie playing in an outdoor theatre he has set up. Unfortunately we only stayed one night and couldn't hike the volcano but next time will stay longer. He even drove us to the bus the next morning and bought us coffee. My only advice is make yourself a detailed map to get there!
Be in no doubt that to stay on Hugo's ranch one is one step away from being in the total wilderness. The Bri Bri house is a comfortable cabin in the forest with rustic charm. Do not expect uber-luxury or 'all the mod cons' but if you are wanting to get away from it all and step straight into the real natural environment then this is prefect.
Jumping into the Ranch's spring feed water pools at dusk or first thing in the morning is sublime. Alternativity walking up the track to the Volcanic hot pools and mud baths is the best way to wile away a few hours of anyone's day.
Hugo is a great host, always on hand to give advice, and to take one to explore the surrounding environs. His four trusting dogs soon become friends when one wants to walk the forest: constantly darting in and out of the growth their companionship was welcomed.
