I came here with my husband, best friend, and her husband for three nights. We had already been to Arenal and Manuel Antonio, and wanted to stay somewhere quaint and cute. This place was PERFECT. Viki and Thomas were wonderful hosts and made delicious meals (home caught mahi mahi for dinner one night). Our accommodation was a charming "tree house" situated partially outdoor, with hammocks hanging all around. We saw the howler monkeys from our hammocks amongst many other animals which were so fun to observe. We decided to go on two excursions: the boat to Tortuga Island (with a snorkeling stop) and the nighttime kayak. Both were magical and VERY memorable experiences. ESPECIALLY the night kayak, where we got to see bio-luminescence light up the waters...it was like a scene out of Avatar (as corny as that sounds). If you're looking for a beautiful, laid-back, rustic, unique experience while surrounded by nature, this is definitely the place to come. We've already recommended it to all of our friends and family.
