It is good if you have a car but if you don't have one - bus or local drivers are available, you have a couple of eating places close by,... More

We stayed in the Owner's Cabin for 4 nights and loved it. The cabin isn't necessarily luxurious, but it was comfortable and reasonably well-equipped. The best part was the wonderful screened-in porch, which provided a great place to perch and watch the amazing parade of wildlife. We saw agoutis, Jesus Christ Lizards, all kinds of birds, monkeys, and, right outside... More

This is what vacations are supposed to be like. After a superb time hiking around volcanos and kayaking down gorgeous rivers through the rainforest my wife and I spent five glorious nights at Toucan Stay Inn in the Owner's Cabin. It was like having our own little home away from home. The grounds consist of beautiful tropical gardens hiding behind... More

Our stay at the inn was marvelous. The room was lovely, very spacious and incredibly clean. It also had a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The location is ideal as it is just down the road from a quiet beach. The guard and attendant of the property, Mike, was super helpful with anything we needed.
