We had Pacific Trade Winds Travel Agency plan our Costa Rica vacation for us, with birds and animals are focus, and they did not let us down. Hacienda Baru was the first place we stayed and it was perfect for us, as we like informal places with privacy. We had our own little very comfortable bungalow, with pool, glorious flowers and birds right outside our door. The food was simple but excellent, and the staff very helpful. We took three guided hikes, the morning bird hike, the mangrove walk and the night hike. All were fantastic, with very impressive guides. We loved our time there and will definitely return.
