Initially I had been thinking we would book BdC for our 5 days in Osa, but for 4 people it gets quite pricey very fast without even booking any tours.
So then I have been looking at vacation rentals like Casa Bambu, this place looks really great. However, the one thing I really do not want to do on vacation is cook for the family. I do this everyday at home and would love a break. It appears as though the caretakers at Casa Bambu will cook for you in the evenings but that's it.
I have been looking around other rentals options and came across Quinta Sonada (http://quintasonada.com/) and found that it is far cheaper than Casa Bambu and the local, on-site caretakers will cook all meals for you if you ask.
Has anyone here ever stayed ay Quinta Sonada or even know where it is? It looks to be closer to Puerto Jiminez than Matapalo. Are the beaches in this area swimable?
Will the wildlife we see at this place be any different than what we would see at Casa Bambu?
One last question, are no-see-ums a problem on all of the beaches in Osa during the rainy season?
Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
