I loved my visit to Urraca so much that I returned a second time! This private resort is secluded in a mangrove island near the Zapatillas ~ the perfect place to relax, away from all the noise and pollution found on developed islands. The hostess, Francine, is a superb French chef, and prepares decadent meals every night made from the fresh fish and lobster delivered by the Ngobe Indians. The ambience throughout the resort makes it the perfect holiday. Make sure you check out the hammocks on the second floor observation deck ~ my favorite place to read, with a breath taking view of the Caribbean. I loved swimming in the clear water with lots of beautiful fish, and having cocktails with my friends on the table in the water. Francines' pet monkey, Toutie was lots of fun to play with too. Heavenly!
