Located in a beautiful property where Toucans are all around, Blue Morphos flying and Squirel Monkeys jumping on the trees. The cabins are super clean, the bed is comfortable and the swimming pool is refreshing, fun and natural. We didnt met Walter but Rosi was so nice that I wish we could stay another night. Drinking coffee at the morning... More

Walter was a great host and translator. Hope to return for another stay with him in a year or so. Great knowledge of the area. we missed breakfast both morning but I recommend you don't. Monkeys come out as well as some other wildlife.

We did not stay at the Lodge since we arrived at Golfito on the Windstar and did not want to take their tours. So I had emailed Walter at the Lodge and he arranged for Achim to meet six of us at the dock. Achim and a van driver promptly met us and drove us about 35 minutes to a... More

My daughter commented that it was the first time that she had ever stayed anywhere, that had no TV, Air Conditioning, or Hot Water. This quaint, beautifully landscaped, Lodge, is from another time, before modern conveniences made their way to Golfito. If you seek a quiet... More
