This is the most environmentally friendly place we have ever stayed! The commitment of the staff to environmental and social issues was genuine and pervasive. We stayed for 6 nights on the honeymoon package, and it was the best week of our lives!
Our cabin was charming, the rainforest was enchanting, and we loved every meal. The cooks prepared wonderfully fresh meals and the bartender was an absolute artist! We went on many of the guided tours, and being new to the rainforest ecosystem, we had expert guidance from the tour guides at Nicuesa. We particularly recommend the night tour, where we were able to see rainforest wildlife that only comes out at night. We also went on the Golfo Dolce boat tour and found ourselves surrounded by 40 playful dolphins! We hiked up to a beautiful waterfall and also took the kayak tour down the river. Each day we saw a new plant or animal that we had never seen before. Also, the yoga deck is beautiful, and we practiced almost every day of our trip (usually on our own, once with an instructor). The massage therapist / yoga teacher was incredibly talented, and we each came back for a second massage before the week was over.
Every day at Nicuesa was new and wonderful! If you are a nature-lover, this is the place for you.
