f you are looking for a cabina in a nice, quiet, and tranquil neck of the jungle then I would highly recommend Cabinas Alma de Hatillo. This beautiful property is about 7 km north of Dominical and is surrounded by lush and fruitful plants. There's even a yoga platform but unfortunately there were no yoga instructors visiting since its low season. Complementing this magical paradise cabina is a wonderful woman named Sabina.
Sabina was extremely hospitable the minute I met her. She was very interested in getting to know me and felt like she was more of a family friend. She was always concerned with my well being so it was nice to have someone to help you out. She even drove me to Dominical a couple times and introduced me the the surf / adventure shop people.
The breakfasts were epic! Each morning Sabina brought out a huge plate of fresh fruit. Toast was served along with these amazing spreads that Sabina made from fruit harvested on her property! She even makes a delicious chocolate spread!!
Overall I would totally recommend this location for couples or even solo travellers who want to stay at a quiet and peaceful cabina. It's best if you have a car to get around, but if not, the bus stops in front of Cabina Alma every couple hours which goes to Dominical or Quepos. The property is behind a secure gate and I felt safe the entire time. The rooms are a good size and are kept very clean.
Stop in and say hi to Sabina
