We intended to stay three nights and stayed the remaining nine nights of our trip.
Start your day with coffee on your private cottage patio, have a shower either indoors or outdoor, and a tasty breakfast. Head off East along the coast and explore three beaches until arriving at a secluded lagoon for a refreshing dip. Attire not required as you will likely be the only ones there. Continue East a little further until you reach the waterfall cascading into the ocean. Upon your return to the resort, take your favorite book and curl up in one of the hammocks among the palm trees on the beach. While relaxing with the waves crashing, keep an eye out for the monkeys that arrive around 4 pm for their daily show. Keep back packs and purses nearby as these cute creatures will empty the contents in search for food.
At some point you need to go for a swim in either the resort's pool or better yet in the Pacific. Towel off, grab your bottle of wine and watch the sunset into the Pacific. Watch for the varied wildlife that will saunter across your path on your way to the restaurant for dinner outside under the palm trees. A nightcap back on the beach under the moon and your day is complete. As you drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves, think of repeating the experience the next day, and the next and....
The complete package of setting, accommodation, food, staff service and the monkeys made this place our favorite on six continents. Interested yet?
