I spent a week here on a yoga retreat in July. Rob, the owner/operator was an integral part of the fabulous experience I had during the entire trip. He is high energy, enthusiastic, and makes a great guide. He and his wife Daysy, along with the local staff were all extremely kind, helpful, and accommodating to all our needs, itinerary changes, dietary restrictions and requests. The lodge is gorgeous and spacious, the rooms and bathrooms are large, comfortable and clean.
Semilla Verde itself is nestled in a paradisical jungle where they grow their own delicious coffee and vegetables. There is a mile of trails to wander and even a giant tortoise who has made their land it's home. Stunning, serene and magical are adjectives that best describe Semilla Verde.
