we stayed here on the recommendation of a good friend, so we knew what to expect, but our friend's description didn't begin to scratch the surface of how great van's place is. while showering (if you're tall enough) you can watch the hummingbirds zipping from flower to flower as you wash your hair, then move down to the deck near van's house and watch who visits the bird feeder. you won't miss any of this awesomeness because the howler monkeys wake you up in time to watch the sun rise over punta banca on the other side of the golfo dulce, prime time for bird watching.
the whole property is spotless and perfectly manicured and your accommodation is equally spotless. if you're the type of traveler that needs a lot of gadgets then you should give south osa a miss as there is no electricity. all the electric at toucan terra is solar and only comes in 12v cigarette lighter style. if you want to see amazing animals from your porch, find your own poison dart frogs while hiking to a beautiful waterfall, surf some awesome waves then toucan terra with van is your best choice. if you need a spa, tv, paved roads and frozen tourist drinks then head to disney world.
