From the moment you arrive, you are immediately immersed in the foothills of the rain forest, with its cooler temps and cloud covered mountains, which makes for a very tranquil setting. The uniqueness of El Silencio is that they have their own organic farm from which they prepare three very delicious meals from daily, included in your room rate. Another feature was the private hot tubs on your platform deck, which is the perfect way to end the evening after a delicious, gourmet meal. The fireplaces in the room are also wonderful and much needed on the cooler nights. A nice touch, too, was the inclusive mini'bar, which was fully stocked each day and complimentary.
Our eco guide, Andre, was superb, in taking us on the propertey´s trail, Mistico Mountain, and showing us the water falls on the property, as well as educating us about the flora and fauna. I had an amazing yoga session at the spa, which is adjacent to the creek, with the sound of the water in the background was truly special. I would highly recommend the couples massage in the specially designed conical room, too, which was one of the better massages I have had in a long time. Do take a day trip to Tabacon Springs in the ARenal area, and if you are lucky to get a good driver, like we had, Hernon, we did a side trip around the volcano area and saw our first Toucan, as well as monkies and iguanas. As they say in Costa Rica, "Pura Vida .... Good Life!¨"
