Let me start by saying Gabby is an incredible communicator and if I could hire her to sell at my business I would. She was on top of all my questions, informative and upbeat. I was so excited to get there just after emails.
We were picked up at the airport and shuttled into the lodge, an hour drive or so. The driver spoke great English and knew his stuff. The drive in was a tour itself. He spotted monkeys and iguanas, birds and butterflies. As we
Arrived at El Remanso I could tell right off it was going to live up to it's rating here.
We were welcomed and everything explained to us. The lodge takes it's mission very seriously as a low impact lodge in the middle of the rainforest. They have self generated electricity and even the pool is Eco friendly. The footprint is not invasive and they have done a great job of maintaining the integrity of the natural surroundings. The birds, monkeys and all sorts of interesting critters surround the lodge and make themselves the center of everyone's attention. The way the rooms and bungalows are set up you are at eye level with all the happenings in the tree tops. Very well thought out! Even sitting around the pool is a bird watchers dream.
The food was awesome and fresh. I can't believe that tomatoes and avocados can taste so good, even the lettuce has more crunch. LOL. There is a full bar open all day. They go out of their way to provide excellent service. The main concierge changes day to day and they are all attentive and constantly making sure you have everything you need. Kudos to you gals!
Definitely take a tour. I would highly recommend the waterfall repel. It was way fun and super safe. They toke safety very serious. This tour was worth every penny. Use discretion on other tours, just saying...
Overall I was extremely pleased with my stay as was my whole crew. It was our first stop of 3 on our vacation and a very nice welcome to Costa Rica! Thanks so much for an enjoyable beginning.
