Lapa was truly magical. A serenade of 8-10 Scarlet Macaws were the alarm clock every day. The property was amazing. Nearby waterfalls, a good beach (albeit a tad rocky for surf & swim). Primary and secondary forest. The guides were lovely and truly invested in what they do, I got a much deeper connection with the jungle through their collective wisdom. The rest of the staff was amazing and warm. It is by far the most immersive wildlife experience I've ever had, with every corner moving, flying, crawling, leaping from branch to branch, etc. I truly came back different, possibly more animal; less wasteful human. We really need to get it together, People. And if you need that reminder, go here and live amongst the beautiful creatures and see why. It's probably the most important thing you can do. BRAVO LAPA RIOS!
