The accomdation is wonderful in this jungle paradise at the tip of the Osa Peninsula. The hosts, Lyn and Kirk, have built some terrific, buildings using bamboo structures with split natural
bamboo that help create a warm prescence. Casa Babu supports the concept of sustainablity through the bamboo buildings in that are off the electrical grid and must use solar energy along with propane for cooking.
When we first arrived, Lyn warned us that the Capuchin Monkeys were crafty and so they were! We opened the shutters wide open to let the sea air flow through the building. It was as if the monkeys were invited in or, "now the store is open!" They came bounding across the lawns, up the trees, onto the shutters where they looked in for raiding opportunities. During one raid, the monkeys hopped through one of the open Kitchen windows and onto the counter, and immediately tossed a roll of paper towels out the window as a distraction. My wife went out to fetch the tossed paper towel roll while I quiety remained inside and watched. The monkeys finally lauched themselves inside once again grabbing a plastic sugar cantainer. I stood up, the monkey dropped the container halfway toward the window. It was quite and amuzing experience.
Lyn and Kirk are knowledgable about the environment as was their guide, William, and for a small fee, took us on a nature walk into the National Park. Driving to the Park was about a 90 minute journey on rough roads and through creeks/rivers to get there. Fording the rivers was quite an experience. William grew up in the jungle as a child and could hear sounds and distinguish animals and birds even while driving the 4x4, amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
