We just returned from a week at Encanta La Vida and are already planning our next visit. What a special place! We stayed in the Ranchito Cabina and loved it. It was cozy with an excellent shower and a fantastic deck where you can relax and let the jungle action come to you. Meals at ELV are served family style and are outstanding. The staff did a great job of accommodating my wife's vegetarian diet. Highlights of our trip included stand-up paddle boarding (coordinated by ELV staff), hikes through the jungle to local waterfalls, yoga on ELV's incredible yoga deck on the edge of the jungle overlooking Pan Dulce, the local Friday night market, socializing with other guests at ELV's poolside bar before dinner, walking the pristine beaches nearby, viewing all of the stunning jungle plants and wildlife, and just totally decompressing. If you're looking for an authentic, laid back experience in the beach-side jungle, Encanta la Vida is the place for you.
