We left the Under Sea Argo dive live aboard in Putaneras for our 3 hour 20 minute van transfer by VDT to the Hotel Punta Islita! Well worth the transfer...........we love the coast line and country side of Costa Rica! It was magic from the minute we saw the beautiful reception with resturant and infinity pool! Gorgeous views of the sea......breath taking! Marvin greeted us and did not waste time making our Avacado Hydrating Couples Spa treatment apt. (we loved this) and setting us up for the 6 MAX turtle nesting night adventure. We were disappointed to see 8 people and that there was absolutely no presentation. None.......first time we have ever experinced this kind of tour. Wish we could have had information on what to expect.....our guide did not volunteer information only gave us information as we asked him questions. Not enough to complain about.....we only focused on one Olive Ridley coming up from the sea, preparing her nest, laying her eggs, and returning to the sea. The 3 hour tour was over in less than 2 hours.
We enjoyed every day exploring the hotel grounds and all of the wildlife and every night in our Villa...........it was absolutley perfect - Manfred made our bedroom special everyday with his special touch!! The staff was wonderful - sharing all kinds of helpful hints to make Punta Islita outstanding! A special thanks to Jose - he spent time with us answering questions and sharing the Costa Rica culture when he had the extra time. We must also thank Edgar for the Praying Mantis - really nice!!!! The staff did a great job of making Hotel Punta Islita very special...........we are returning!
Thanks again Marvin for making Hotel Punta Islita a perfect finale to our Costa Rica adventure!
See you again soon!
