This was my second and my daughter's 4th trip to CR; first to this region.The only disappointment was rather murky water d/t a recent hurricane off Mexico which made snorkeling from the shore impossible. We did hire some guy walking up and down the beach to take us across the bay for $50 to snorkel: What a fabulous trip. Just my daughter and me. We saw a swordfish and giant sea turtle on the ride out. Played with blow fish, star fish and saw a variety of fun stuff.
For the most part we relied on MARDIGI TOURS to get us around, having experienced costa Rica's muddy and unmarked roads in the past. Marvin and Digi were FABULOUS! From the minute they picked us up at the airport to the time they dropped us off. Very punctual, helpful, professional and speak good english. They can arrange anything you need, I promise. One of the things my daughter and I most wanted was a long and challenging horseback riding trip and we got it. Two hours of flying thru the woods and near the beach. If you hire MARDIGI TOURS tell them Kate and Emily sent you; just as another way to say thank-you to them.
The hotel was perfect for what we wanted: A clean, safe, pretty place well located to visit all that the area offered. The Staff was very friendly. There are computers in the lobby available for a small fee but internet access not always available. Small grocery on site and larger one a short walk down the road. Units very pleasant with active recycling program. They also provide paper towels, dish soap and plenty of beach towels. There is a take out laundry service with a fast turn-around time for a small fee .Daily maid service unless declined. Resort activities offered. We only did the Bar-tending course but this was fun: made and sampled 6 different drinks for free. We did rent the in-room safe but had no reason to think it was necessary. The rooms have keys...Bring an elastic wristband/keyholder with you, this would have been so convenient to have when at the beach etc.
So go and have fun! Walk around. Several nice little retaurants off the road from the beach as well as the hotel's. And call Mardigi tours. I know we will be back!
