After arriving at the Airport in Tambor, we got our rental car and drove to Mal Pais. We didn't know what to expect but the drive was great. You go through rolling hills of cattle farms till you get closer to the ocean where the jungle actually gets denser. Which is really cool. After going through the town of Mal Pais (very small), we headed to the resort. We were greeted by David, the manager, and were shown our room (Villa Vista). This room was awesome. It had such an amazing view. It had huge double french doors that you could just keep open or closed depending on how you wanted it. It had one of the best beds we slept in costa rica as well. David & Adam do an awesome job setting up activies and recommending restaurants and things to do in the area. You defintely need transportation (atv or car) if you plan to leave the resort. There is a private chef there which we only used for breakfest. Breakfest was awesome and he seems like an amazing chef, but that said it is fairly expensive so we didn't hire him for lunch or dinner. There are some awesome restaurants in the area though so don't worry. Also it is incredibly hot down on the coast. I would recommend a higher SPF than you normally use. The resort also has a pool, where we spent a ton of time. It is a very nice pool with great views.
