We had the best time ever at Jungle Creek Lodge. We were originally only to stay 3 nights, but loved it so much that we extended our stay. Paula and Clark were so accomadating and helpful before, during and even after our stay. We couldn't have asked for better service, quality, cleanliness and enjoyment. They had it all and beyond. The room we stayed in - El Gecko- was perfect for us. Safe,comfortable clean, nicely decorated, and convenient access. It has a full kitchen which was great. Right outside our door was a great little swimming pool and a patio with BBQ and a common area with a Ranchero for all the guests to mingle and enjoy each others stories from the days excursions and events. It was really great to sit and chat with people from all over the world in such a serene setting. We were all very excited to see a female sloth with her little baby in the tree right beside the swimming pool. And the Titi Monkeys came to visit us everyday. along with tucans and many geckos and lizards. It was so up close and personal you felt like you were experiencing the jungle in the safety and comfort of your back yard. Paula and Clark were so helpful in suggesting and setting up tours, restaurants and anything else including directions to meet our needs. What more can I say, It was the absolute best out of the 5 places we stayed during our vacation. We plan to return late fall and for sure will stay at Jungle Creek again, This time for alot longer. I was quite surprised reading the other reviews to hear Mr Bobalongs comments regarding the pool and BBQ area. I just don't understand why on earth he would think the area should be exclusive for any particular guests usage. It is a common area. If you need an area as large and beautiful as this is, would you not then rent a private home? And then I think the cost would be about $3500+ per week to do so. Funny how some people think. Never the less, we had a great time, and it certainly seemed everyone else was having a good time too. Pura Vida in Jungle Creek Lodge!!
