We eventually found ourselves in the infinity pool overlooking the jungle and coast at least twice a day. Close enough to other tourist sites by short car ride. There's a couple trails for hiking that took us to a... More

It's a gorgeous mansion that opens up to a breathtaking infinity pool that meets the horizon of the rainforest and ocean.

Except for the awesome sounds of the native wildlife.
