I flew in with nature air - a lovely scenic flight on a 12 seater (bit of a flying minibus) A good choice I think, hearing some of the rough road stories. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by Marvin. I mentioned that there was only one vegetarian dish on the menu and he spoke to the chef and the waiter had a list of choices for me by that evening! He also arranged for a bodyboard and fins so I could surf. The staff were all lovely and made the stay extra special. I did one organised activity which was turtle watching and saw olive rilley sea turtles come up the beach and lay eggs, back lit by lightning from a storm out to sea - amazing (but could have been better guided) The hotel is surrounded by dry tropical forest and you don't need to go far to see wildlife; howler monkeys just past reception and a coati walked under my hammock not to mention all the birds. I had a lovely time - it was a gorgeous place to relax (lovely infinity pool, good cocktails) with enough to do that I didn't get too restless (beach walks, wandering into the village, walking into the forest, birdwatching, surfing)
