This is without exception the finest vacation that my family has ever taken. As you can gather from other reviewers, one can only describe our stay with superlatives. Harvey was attentive 24/7. his local Tico staff including Paulina the cook and Frank the boatman were both gems. The scenery :dolphins and Jacks gamboling in the Golfo Dulce out the front and the cacaphony of birds and Howler monkeys and rainforest behind us was surreal. With adequate screens, hot water, showers and electricity (powered by off the grid hydroelectric and solar) we were up close and personal with all that Mother Nature had to offer but without the creepy crawlies to contend with at night.
The food was the highlight local dishes plenty of fabulous fruits and juices, fresh fish- the cerviche( fish barracuda marinated in lime and cilantro) is to die for. Snorkeing, swimming, kayaking, mangrove river tour, hiking in rainforest...nirvana.
This should be on everyone's bucket list!!
well done Harvey, we will be back
