Nov.1 - 15 - My wife and I were at Selva Del Mar for two weeks - we had a great time during our stay and were able to explore the area via kayak,snorkel, hike and fish. The breakfasts provided were very generous and delicious (especially susans banana bread and muffins). We cooked most of our other meals in our great kitchen and shopped in Bocas when Izzy and Susan (our great hosts) went into town. There was a warm welcome feel to the place and the staff of Sonia and Jose made it great by answering our many questions and encouraging our sad attempts at spanish.This is a not a place to go if you like an all inclusive /AC environment but if you want to relax, see some great wildlife, and have an adventure a little off the beaten path then this is the place to go.
