From day one not a moment was wasted with the help of the great staff at Star Mountain Lodge. Waking up to the call of howler monkeys surrounded by tropical beauty. The staff made sure we knew what to see and do, the best resturaunts to go to. The on site horse stable offered us a guided tour that took us out on a spectacular ride into the surrounding hills then down to the oceans edge. The views are incredible. The lodge has it all, clean well kept rooms, a peaceful community outdoor lounge and eating area, hiking paths right out your door. The pool was very nice and welcome after a day out exploring, or take a swim in the close by ocean.One of the best trips we've had.
