It's a great change of pace from the large resort vacations... just a wonderful low key week to spend in the rainforest with yoga in the morning, hiking trails, jacuzzi, delicious food and just overall relaxing. You are about 10-15 minutes from Puerto Viejo, we went to town a few times, hit up the beach, bars and restaurants, rode bikes... More
