Words cannot express how wonderful our stay at Gaia was. From the beautiful property to the absolutely top notch customer service, I have never been so sad to leave a vacation. We had more close encounters with wildlife at the hotel than at Manual Antonio Park, often observing a mother sloth and her baby within 10 feet as we sat...

The Gaia is outstanding in any sector: very friendly and helpful personell, beautiful rooms, an amazing pool, top restaurant and last but not least the eco projects they are supporting. Staying there won't only be a great experience, but as well a contribution to preserve Costa Rica's natural beauties!
