Second visit with Fred for kayaking, and enjoyed both experiences. His place overlooking the rio terraba delta has great views, a nice pool and basic accommodation at reasonable prices. A couple of cabinas added recently. Kayak trips are for experienced kayakers on sit-ons. First one was on the ocean to Isla Ballena with snorkelling, a hard slog including some surf... More

We had the fortune of reserving a terrible cabin somewhere else, hated it and started driving around to see where we could stay for the next few days. Club Fred was recommended by a guy that had no space in his mountain top villa. Amazing views, kitchen!, and although my husband and I are not usually the ones to hang... More

Tackling the steep climb up to this villa was made absolutely worthwhile but the amazing view from the pool area (which also doubles up as Fred's front room!). Fred was so helpful and accomodating in sharing his home with guests. The rooms are basic but its a great location and we had great fun on the kayaks hired from Fred.
