Sadly we didn't get to stay here. We got suckered into staying at a generic hostel in the middle of town instead. We went for a walk for lunch down to El Fodor (definitely worth stopping for a meal here) and stumbled upon Casa Tranquilo along the way. I was immediately bummed that we didn't get to stay here. This peaceful, unique hostel looked like exactly what we were looking for. The guys that worked there were super helpful even though we weren't guests. We were invited on a climbing/rappelling tour up a beautiful, hollow strangler fig tree by two of the guys with only two other people. It was amazing!Then they set up a trip to the Cloud Forest for the following morning for us. The laid-back, funky atmosphere here seems like it is definitely worth the stay. Just say no to the hagglers that get you when you get off of the bus!
