Six of us ranging from 65 to 5 in 2 cabins. The pool and gardens are beautiful and wonderful to see all the monkeys scrambling about the trees. We did the ziplining and the morning wildlife walk. The guides and staff are kind and amazingly informative. They engaged the young kids about leaf cutter ants and all sorts of wildlife that has stuck with them. We had a rental car and went into the nearby town which was great for watching the surfing and dinners. The food at Baru is best for breakfast but the rest aren't great. We picked up some snacks and beer to keep in the cabin but the kitchen is not too useful and the fridge isn't terribly cold. This is not a slick all inclusive by any means, but it was a lovely way to really visit Costa Rica. I felt like a guest of a family. The beach is absolutely stunning, but the undertow makes it very dangerous to swim. However, we played at the edge and had an endless beach to ourselves which was magical. Time is on a different clock in these parts, so be flexible about time so order a beer and bring snacks for the kids because everything runs very late.
