A very small specialty rainforest lodge oriented towards nature observation and birding. We provide very personal attention,excellent meal service and guiding. The lodge is situated outside a small village on the Rio Tigre and is completely surrounded by the forest. We have a maximum capacity for 12 guests. All 4 upstairs rooms and the two cabins are designed for nature viewing and open to the forest on 1 or more sides. Upstairs rooms have shared baths and the cabins have private baths. Cleanliness and guest's comfort are our goals. You will have access to many kilometers of trails both on our 13 hectare forested property and on the properties of our partners.

We read everything on their web site and all the additional information that Liz sent us so we were prepared for the minimal power (all solar supplied), no A/C, usually no wifi, communal meals, outdoor showers. For us it was all part of the charm of this "off the beaten track" rustic, camp-like lodge - but if you don't understand what it's like, you could be very unhappy with your choice. Liz and Abraham were wonderful hosts. The common meals are part of the fun - to get to know people from other places and talk about your experiences. They will make sure to meet your needs in terms of food and drink if you let them know ahead of time (and the meals were wonderful). Abraham is a guide extraordinaire. I still don't know how he can see birds what seems like a mile away - but he does, and sets up his telescope in about 3 seconds so everybody can take a look! We went on 3 birding expeditions with him, then did some other walks on our own (they have a map of the nearby trails). If you get worn out, you can also just sit on the deck and see many kinds of colorful birds at the nearby feeders or on the jungle flowers! The jungle really is just a few feet away. Liz will arrange transportation for you if you ask - that was a great help to us. If you email them about anything, and don't hear back right away, don't be discouraged: they can go several days with no internet connection at times! (And there is no direct phone service at this time.) But go, unplug, relax and enjoy nature.

If you like birding experiences, this place works well. Staff and service excellent. Meals are very good! Sleeping in open air rooms with the night sounds of the forest is a treat. There is almost no noise from human-related activity. WIFI is extremely limited (almost non-existent) so prepare accordingly. Showers have limited hot water and are shared by all guests (toilets too).

Your taxi will follow the road to its end and beyond, drive through the river, and over a rocky last block to deposit you at this lovely little camp. Well, it has the feel of a camp, but a camp where you can take your binoculars to bed and watch birds in comfort. Everyday it’s like the animals come to you. We drank wine while watching a three-toed sloth watch us. We were awakened one morning by howler monkeys who must’ve known it was time for our bird walk. And you hardly have to go for a walk if you want to see birds; just look out into the surrounding jungle. From weeks before you arrive, it’s Liz that will take care of you. You and she will correspond about how you will arrive, where you will sleep, and what you will do. When you get there, she and the staff will assure your comfort. And Abraham will take you out to see the numerous and wonderous creatures of the Oso Peninsula—when he isn’t preparing delicious meals for you. This is a unique and wonderful experience you will be talking about for a long time!

We enjoyed this place immensely. The guides were great. They knew just where to take us. They showed us excellent birding on the forest trails around the lodge (Little Tinamou, Fiery-billed Aracari and many more). On a road trip to the tip of the peninsula we saw lots of grassland birds in addition to monkeys and a 2-toed sloth. The hosts Liz and Abraham very friendly. We enjoyed relaxed conversation with them and guests around the dinner (and breakfast table) almost every day. The meals were tasty, healthy, and skillfully incorporated our vegetarian and diabetic restrictions without affecting the other guests. We are so glad we got to experience the secluded forest lodge

I stayed here for 5 days in June. Owner Abraham Gallo is a great guide and we saw a Margay on one of our outings. Abraham also taught me how to pan for gold.. yes we found gold!! If that was not enough Abraham is also an amazing chef who prepares awesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner.. this is a paradise for birders for sure.
