This place is amazing. It is totally different than the many beach and Caribbean trips we have taken. It is definitely an adventure to get here. We landed at night, so thank goodness we had a driver to navingate the very windy roads in the dense fog. It is worth the journey. The place is new and clean and beautiful. It is built in the middle of the rainforest. You hear the sounds of monkeys and birds. The staff is like family. The food is excellent. We were truly relaxed. The property has so much to offer from the many hot springs to the wild life sanctuary to the river tubing and kayaking. And there is a lot more to do nearby - including the very exciting zip lining, hiking and hanging bridges. I am very glad we had a full week to enjoy it -- we probably could have stayed even longer! We were here after Christmas and into early January. We toasted the new year with the owner and his family -- most people went into the town for that night. It was great to be in the middle of nowhere and still have the comforts of home. They had great wifi and they let us reserve the seats at the pool bar to watch a football game -- and even served us our dinner there. The rooms were comfortable, all with amazing views of the volcano (when the clouds cooperated). We enjoyed the daily rain showers ... and under the canopy of the plants and trees you could easily take cover while it passed by. There is beauty everywhere -- really a unique not-to-be-missed experience.
