El Remanso delivers exactly what its name implies; pace, tranquility, rest.
The magic of this place rest in the fact that you can mold your time there at will, weather you decide to participate in the many activities offered ( hiking, horseback riding on the beach, waterfall rappelling or kayaking) or simply peacefully relaxing surrounded by the exceptional beauty of Costa Rica.
I did the latter.
After a period of very stressful work, I simply needed to let everything go, and recharge energies. And I can tell you, El Remanso has been better than any therapy.
As a young woman traveling alone, I am naturally concerned about safety; though found that Costa Rica is an ideal place to visit on your own.
Since my arrival to Puerto Jimenez, El Remanso´s staff took care of every tiny little detail I needed. From receiving me at the landing strip, making sure I got the most out of my ride up to the Lodge ( a beautiful ride, and the driver made it even more special by stopping along the way, and pointing out spectacular birds, butterflies and even monkeys we crossed on our path), to my warm hearted welcome by Silvia, who made sure I was comfortable settled in, and had clearly arranged for everything to go as smoothly as it did.
She gave me the most wonderful introduction to the Lodge, and you could see she clearly loved this place, and all that it represented, and that was definitely contagious.
Silvia made sure I had the experience I was looking for, and she nailed it!
The accommodations are exactly what I was looking for; comfortable, clean, spacious and most importantly, in complete harmony with the surroundings.
I enjoyed all the delicious environment conscious bath products the Lodge offers. I am very picky about what shampoos I use, and was delighted to be introduced to the chemical free products of El Remanso .
Every person I encountered at El Remanso contributed to make my stay the most pleasant one I have ever had.
Modesta, the delightfully smiling woman who looked after my cabin, was so sweet and caring, that I could not help to feel pampered as if she was my loving aunt.
Jairo made sure I had the most wonderful views during my meals, and that everything was set and ready for me to enjoy. I was in complete awe to meet Sergio; who not only has the most delightful attitude, but speaks fluent Flemish.
Gilbert and Geiner worked magic in the kitchen, preparing menus of healthy and delicious meals full with local flavor and color.
El Remanso´s team work together, making sure the whole experience of being surrounded by such beautiful sights, even more spectacular.
I will most definitely come back, and am sure each and every one of El Remanso´s visitors will so too.
