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
Thermal waters, hiking trails, spa, exercise in the Jungle, tours, flora and fauna.

Hugo was wonderful and very easy and pleasant to talk to. The area is rustic and FYI for people who may be considering booking should know this.... The shower was broken during our stay so we had to use what little bit if water came from the end of a hose. It is also river water, which is fine, but I wish I had know this prior to brushing my teeth with it. People who are pregnant or have compromised immune systems should be aware ahead of time. After I found out, I used bottled water instead. Also be sure you're okay with being around bugs, spiders, and reptiles. I saw a small lizard crawling on the wall at night and lots of spiders and small bugs got on our clothes. We ended up sleeping under a mosquito net to protect ourselves at night. If you enjoy camping then you will be fine.
