I have stayed here twice. Once with my family. And currently leading a group of 11 university students. The grounds are lovely with wonderful flora and fauna (lots of tropical birds).
This is a family-run small "resort" and the Tut family is welcoming and helpful....More
The minute you arrive you are welcomed and immediately know this is a cosy family run operation. They have great birding guides on staff, Andy was great. You can do anything from horseback riding, Kayaking, Mayan ruins, and of course birding. The rooms are nice...More
We stayed for three nights. Cozy rooms and neat to hear the jungle noises. Great hammocks to rest in while there. We took a Barton cave canoe trip with Erik one day. That was awesome!
We had dinner once and breakfast several times. It was...More
This was one of the best resorts I have visited. The facilities were beyond beautiful, the food was to die for and the staff treated us like family. The guides are very knowledgeable about the wildlife and they are perfect for the ornithologist in you!...More

Hi, It's a few minute walk down to the river. So quite easy. There is a path through the jungle. They don't really have a beach area. There is some sand but that is dependent on where the river height is and it can be quite warm and buggy down on the river without any breeze. They have a 1/2 day canoe tour that they will take you up the river and let you float down. We were going to do that but had some scheduling changes that caused us to run out of time.

There isn't really a shuttle, but transportation can be included in the packages. I disagree with last review! Packages are an excellent deal and the food was great, especially the breakfasts. The people who run this place are friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. Tour guides - often members of the family- were also great. I loved that your guide stayed with you for all the tours, and they they were adapted to us, not a group. (But skip the tubing- very touristy.
