We stayed here one night on the way to another destination having met the owner previously who handled the horseback rides to Nuyuaca Falls. We arrived around 4pm in time for a killer sunset and the sound of howler monkeys. The property is on the side of a mountain with incredible views of the ocean. There are tons of toucans, parrots and other birds. The dinner and homemade banana cream pie was excellent and coffee was ready when we got up in the morning. The property has some friendly cats and dogs. Wish we could have stayed longer.
