Our three-generation family of eight was pretty tired out by the time we reached the Princesa, having jumped in our rental cars after landing in San Jose and driving straight through. What a treat it was to arrive at such a dazzlingly beautiful spot and to be treated so nicely. Manuel and Yasmina made sure we were comfortable and served us excellent meals. We did lots of bird watching and some jungle exploring on the property and were entranced by the volume and variety of life around us. Views of the volcano were spectacular. Still, as has been noted in other reviews, this eco lodge is not for everyone. If you need resort-level amenities and are squeamish about a little "wild" life, Choose another place. For us, Princesa will be a lasting memory of loveliness.
