The facilities at Casa Selva del Mar where just as expected and explained through their website...only better! The landscaping and views off the porch were just amazing. We partook in dinner cooked by Susan one evening - which was just delicious. They delivered muffins or breads and fruit each morning for breakfast.
The owners took care that our needs were met for water transportation to Bocas for diving and a little alcove for brick oven pizza from an Austrian chef! We utilized the kayaks and snorkeled the reef right off the dock. Leaf-cutter ants, sloths, toucans, parrots, stingrays, and various reef fish were animals that our family enjoyed observing.
Do go heavy on the bug spray, as the no-see-ums (as we call them in Florida) are terrible at certain times - we hit one of those times!
