Head and shoulders above anywhere else we stayed in CR.
We spent a magical week in the luxurious, architect designed, Casa del Bosque, surrounded by the majestic sight and incredible sounds of the rainforest highlighted by the occasional sighting of howler monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds or morpho butterflies. It felt truly exclusive with only two beautiful, Casas sympathetically arranged with complete privacy from one another in a lush spacious setting.
After a day visiting one of the nearby beaches (Punta Uva, Cocles and Manzanillo were all stunning) it was bliss to return to our immaculate, lovingly finished, casa and take a refreshing dip in the plunge pool or swing in the shady hammocks. Every possible need had been anticipated and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful hosts Zoe & Tom. Their charming support team Jose & Tita were efficient and unobtrusive.
All in all it was a truly magical place to call home for the week.
We enjoyed many delicious and varied meals all within short driving distance.
El Refugio Grill was particularly good, as was Maxi’s.
I recommend the local cocktail - Caipirinha. (one was probably enough)
The local animal rescue centre is well worth a visit.
