This is by far the best place I have ever stayed, not only in Costa Rica but anywhere in the world! The lodge's location is absolutely beautiful with stunning views from both the rooms and the restaurant/bar. When we had breakfast we saw many types of birds and animals including Scarlet Macaws, Toucans and a group of White-faced Capuchins! The hiking trails are fantastic and allow you to get really close to the beautiful natural surroundings and give you a great opportunity to see some fantastic wildlife. Even if you just sit by the pool you are guaranteed to see several species of birds and reptiles! All of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and are very accommodating for any special needs (I have type 1 diabetes, so they gave me a special dessert of fruit instead of what they gave the other guests, all without any problems!). If you are interested in wildlife you have to go out with one of the guides, they are all extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Costa Rica's rich biodiversity. Even during any of the other activities you are guaranteed to see plenty of interesting wildlife. I would personally recommend the Dolphin watching (done outside of the Lodge's property, in the Golfo Dulce) and the waterfall rappelling (I'm scared of heights but I did it and it was incredible!!). There is so much to see and do here, I wish I could have spent much more time there than I did! I will definitely be back and will definitely be recommending this wonderful place to anyone that is considering travelling to Costa Rica!
