I stayed at the rainforest resort for 7 nights. I loved it.
The staffmembers are all super nice and make you feel very welcome. You can go kayaking (or rafting in the summer) in the river. The owner took us on a private trip to a very beautiful waterfall where we enjoyed swimming and cliff jumping. The resort is tucked in a very stunning rainforest. They built the hole hotel without cuting a single tree (true fact). So there are a lot of rocky paths and it feels like you are in the middle of a rainforest. Their menu is huge and the food is simply delicios. NOthing goes to waste they use all the leftover food to feed their animals at the farm.
Besides the resort there is a farm. Where they grow a lot of vegetables witch they use in the kitchen. The owner of the resort gave us a tour around his farm. They use wormpoo to make fertilizer. They also use the old oil for cooking to make biodiesel. Furtermore the grow mushrooms, there are chicken, ducks, wild bores and fishes. If you visit the resort dont forget to check out the farm. Its truly an amazing place. The owner takes local kids or other groups there so they can learn about organic farming.
While I stayed at the resort we went garbage picking at one of the waterfalls. We did this with a local school. Other than that the owner took us to some local schools and we teached english to the children there. He is always looking for volenteers who can speak english and is able to teach at a local school.
I can only advise you to stay at this resort. Its not only beautiful and super relaxing they also do a lot of good things for the envoroment.
