My youngest and I were guests here on a Workaway.info to immerse youngest in more conversational Spanish. Planning was easy and communications well. La Princesa is a gem. Imagine hiking, learning about plants, swimming in a pool, eating breakfast or dinner made by staff, seeing the stars, playing in the stream and climbing down to the waterfall. Relax in the main house with 2 king suites overlooking the forest with the beautiful open concept or any of the other 3 king suites or the 3 bedroom cottage on the property. Rainy season for us on the visit, but it allowed us to see the forest in action with the birds and wildlife when sun breaks out after a short rain. Connected with a great tour group and taxi's and employees of Princesa and made our trip the best ever. We shall return and eat their fruit again and mingle with guests and more. I think what we liked best...Only 15 minutes from downtown and it was great to tour and explore cocoa farm, volcano, hot springs, town and more and then retreat to a quiet place that let you relax and enjoy the real Costa Rica.
