“No Frills Immersion”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Atta is a simple and that’s what we loved. The rooms are basic (no hot water and limited electricity), but very comfortable and feature ensuite bathrooms with showers and flush toilets. All rooms are in a motel-style strip. The palapa-style dining area is a short walk away.
The grounds are wonderfully plain. Just a large, clear, mowed area that provides perfect views of the totally black (no city lights) night sky and of the Cara Cara birds that make rounds at dawn and dusk. Midday the place is aflutter with yellow butterflies.
Atta is located at the base of the stairs to the Canopy Walkway and has guides on hand at all times to lead you up there. The stairs are in dreadful condition. You need to be agile and well-balanced or at least very, very determined to make it up all 150 deteriorating steps to the top. The guides, however, will provide every possible assistance. They speak proudly of getting a very large birder all the way up – with one guide pushing and other pulling.
Food is OK and Anthony, the host, is most accommodating and engaging. We aren't birders, but other travelers we talked with said the birding here was very, very good.
