If your idea of an overseas vacation is a Hilton type hotel complete with shuttle from the airport, and all the conveniences, this is not the place for you. An absolutely breathtaking location with a view of islands in the distance and set on a slope in between two volcanoes, Totoco offers a total break from the tedium of day -to- day work-oriented existence. An intensely private setting with several different types of private casitas, each totally constructed of local materials and in indigenous styles, provides a serene experience. Whether you hike into the cloud forest to the top of the volcano, tour the coffee planatation, take advantage of a kayaking adventure, or just relax in the hammocks and soak up the location, this is a memorable experience. The staff of the lodge is totally there for you, assisting with all arrangements, to include transfers from the airport to the ferry and then on to the property. And, it is totally eco-friendly. This is a new property, and it is still evolving. There are small hiccups and glitches in an all- natural environment and the roads on this end of the island are abysmal. We are already planning our return visit--if you are looking for something different and out of the ordinary, you will love this place and the people.
