I'm so glad that I did this! My husband and I have always wanted to go Costa Rica, but were unsure where. We found a living social deal to this place. Best decision I've ever made about a vacation! This was better than our honeymoon to Mexico. The pool and the view overlooking the ocean is amazing. The staff were so wonderful and accommodating. We met so many people staying there and people around town. People were so friendly. Roger and his family were great at planning the excursions and doing the tours. I highly recommend the zip line canopy tour and ATV tour to Montezuma waterfalls. It was relaxing and an adventure in the same place. Mal Pais is not a huge American tourist destination like Cabo in Mexico, but that's what we loved about it. So if you are looking for an adventure and a place to relax in paradise, this is the place. If you worried about not being able to speak Spanish, no worries because most people can speak some English. You'll get around just fine. The only thing to prepare you is the airport tax when leaving the country and if you use a smaller airline like Sansa or nature air, there is also a small airport tax. Not a big deal though. Most places accept credit cards, but we found it easy to just exchange our money into colones. I miss vista de olas already! We will be back!
