This is our second trip to the same place. Considering how big or small this globe, coming to the same place more than once, means only one - we liked first time.
The place is outstanding. Friendliness is just everywhere. Starting at meeting you in San Jose airport, then at Puerto Jimenez airport and then at front desk of the lodge. Its actually starts from their representative in USA. Place is exotic and at the same time its very secure. Its all inclusive and by second day they know your taste in drinks, food and desserts. The food quality is very good even for picky eaters (my smaller one). Sleep quality is very good - however around 5 am parrots will make so much noise reminding that's it time to wake up and go fish. The boats are well stocked with all kind drinks (beer, water, juices), lunches and fruits. Equipment on my boat was mainly Penn, which is not my favorite brand, but of good quality. Captains and crew wants you to catch fish and they are trying hard to make it happened. My small one was catching large roosters at least 2-3 per day. There are top spa at resort, but this time we did not use it. From previous visit it was very good quality. There are additional eco tours. We went to cocoa farm or "chocolate" farm for morning half day tour and it was a blast. We tried all kind of exotic fruits and sugar cane. Then it was fruits with 100% chocolate. We also took another horse riding tours in afternoon and kids had blast.
The small one wants to come back next year.
