          If you are visiting Montezuma but want to be closer to nature and away from the crowds, Cabuya is my first choice. Its an ancient fishing village known for its tranquillity and of course plenty of fresh fish for a reasonable price.

          I have stayed at Howler monkey hotel just last month and after talking to Jim a lot about nature and science = I decided to take it upon myself to clean the place up a little and maybe learn something from the Sage. Jim was nice enough to hire me as his Manager and his personal assistant on trial basis. You are right the pillows are old and will be replaced. All the other things you have mentioned have already been addressed. Looking forward to meet you and hear more of criticism so that we can improve the place for people like yourself when they visit an ancient fishing Village of Cabuya. "La Pura Vida said the Howler monkey and I answered, take me up there so that I can experience the pure life I long for so." Thanks for your honest feedback, Professor Zed. Manager, Howler Monkey Hotel.

          I am wondering if you are aware about the flaura and fauna of costa rica. I just wanted to clarify that we here at howler monkey respect nature and don't kill the animals that are living here that includes roaches, spiders and other creatures. We respect all living things and please next time you write a poor review thing about such things. La pura Vida. You are always welcome back, but the price may be a little different next year. I hope to see you back in Cabuya with your family, so we can make your next stay in costa rica less creepy. Maybe when I play a song for you called The cabuya road is taking me home, I am illuminated by the light of the Moon, you won't see the place as darkness. The Tao that can be told is not the internal Tao, The Name that can be named is not the internal Name, The Unnamable is internally real, naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire you realize the mystery. Caught in desire you see only the manifestation, yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called Darkness, darkness within darkness, the gateway to all of Knowledge.
