It was a good luck that we found this place. Me and my boyfriend we spent here 3 amazing days. It was exactly what we wanted to find - quiet place with beautiful nature around. Owners made here some trails and especially the trail trough the river basin was amazing experience. You can see there many animals, waterfalls where you can swim naked because no one is there or closer to the village few gold seekers. It is good and cheap way to get to know Costa Rican wildlife.
