this is a fantastic place.. simple and really great staff .. the brothers manage the place and ensure they go out of their way to help. they recommended a snake zoo rather a reptile zoo near by that was truly memorable. its close to sky trek if thats the company you are going with. the road to get here was bad and you would probably feel good in a 4x4 but can take a sedan too. however they plan to make the road soon so you never know by the time you read this maybe !
rooms were comfy and had additional beds. its a drive to la fortuna. the food place they recommended was awesome too -la choza del laurel. authentic food, great price and so delicious. would recommend a night pass for tabacon hot springs as well. worth every penny without staying there.
