Rustic setting is just what you would expect in the jungle. Meals were very good served family style affording you the opportunity to meet other travellers and share experience. You will see more wildlife poolside than all of the national parks. Many tours offered but check prices ahead as they seem fluid. So here we are in the jungle monkeys all around and at thebar we find a world class mixilogist in Julian! Pura Vida indeed.
we hiked waterfalls had a guided nature tour and Kate provided an excellent massage.
Road is doable in your 4x4 rental car but go slow there are many hazards.
Gratuities and unreliable wifi are extras.
