Originally was traveling in February with no reservations... stuck in Puntarenas for four hours (missed the ferry). Got on the phone and found another local hotel that was full but that recommended Canaima. He said it was a new hotel and it was very nice. Nestled up on the hill, this beautiful oasis is surrounded by tropical scenery and lots of monkeys, butterflies and the like. My uncle actually slept on the outside bed that is suspended from the ceiling. He says he's never slept that well in his life. JuanCarlos, one of the owners, was incredibly accomodating and also very nice. The beach is a short walk down the hill, along with small cafes and shops. I can guarantee if you stay at Canaima, you will love it. You can't beat the price for this beautiful heaven. I miss it already so very much. I just returned from my second trip.. this time alone. Didn't want to leave the place!!!
