On AirBnB (and even here on trip advisor) it was advertised that there would be free WiFi. When we got there, we quickly realized that not only did we not have wifi (who cares anyways), there was no cellular reception OR a land line that we can use. The only way to contact the outside world was through a gruelling... More

If you like off the beaten path places with great service, this is the place for you. We stayed in Sonia's house last Christmas and had the time of our lives. It was hard to leave the hammock and the Capuchin entertainment at our cabin each day, but there is so much to explore from birds to tapirs to waterfalls... More

I hate write this because it will generate too much business for this Paradise. It has to be the all time favorite experience for my husband and I. Our trip is everything we dreamed of for over 15 years. The house was clean, the staff was beyond all expectations and we would go back in a heart beat. We had... More

I had the most utterly relaxing stay at the Amaya Family Cabins (aka Poor Man's Paradise) in March with my sister The stay starts with a 1.5 hour boat ride from Sierpe. Bill, who helped us make our reservation, had alerted the boat company in advance that we would be coming, and indeed they were expecting us. The boat was... More

Overall our experience was magical. We were in paradise for eight nights. However, this may not be for the fair-hearted who cannot be without air conditioning, hot water or electricity before 5pm and after 10 pm. If your palate is not one to adapt, you may want to consider the primary sustenance coming from the kitchen is rice, rice and... More
