We stayed at La Selva Mariposa last 4/2013 and found it charming. The food was delicious and the accommodations were nice. The bathroom was a little different though since it had no roof/ceiling, so when using it in the wee hours of the morning, I had various kinds of bugs land on my face. My husband loved it, though, since he loves checking out insects. Privacy is limited since the owners live steps from the cabin we stayed in and the husband was about the property on a rather unpredictable schedule. He also would routinely come to our cabin, peek in the windows to get my attention to tell me about something of note about sightseeing destinations, restaurants, etc. This gentleman was quite grumpy and rather abrupt/rude at times. All meals are served outdoors, picnic-style. This covered area where meals are served is "bugged," so you have to be very careful not to critique your stay while waiting for breakfast to be served or the owner will be very grumpy with you. The patio right next to the pool is very dangerous; extremely slick when exiting the pool. The second day I slipped and wrenched my knee which almost ruined ourtrip. Be very careful when using the pool.
