Look out from the balcony of this lodge and all you can see is dense tropical forests. You are living literally in the forests, but maybe just out of it. The customer service was superb. The owner took a day or two to warm up to us, but once he did he was very welcoming. He served some cheap, traditional and really good breakfasts.
The best part about this is that there are a number of hikes that you can do, just outside the house. I love the hike that leads to the waterfalls. The swimming pool has natural water and it also makes for a great experience, if you get up early morning. It can be a little too hot later in the day.
The only inconvieninces were that this is a bit away from the town (2-3 miles) & the road going up is a little rough. There was also dim lighting in most of the rooms which made it hard to read in the night.
The place is safe & cheap. The customer service was fabulous and the experience of being amidst the tropical forests was ecstatic!
