This place is a perfect getaway for when you want to be with the family and be away from everything else, while at the same time, enjoy nature at its best. Everything from the cozy beds and sustainable practices to its great food makes you want to keep coming back. It's perfect whether you want to just lay down on a hammock while the kids play basketball or volleyball or whether you want to walk nature trails and seek for wildlife...there is plenty (crocodile, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, an array of bird species..and if you are lucky enough, a puma or a jaguar). If it is not a rainy night, the sky looks so amazing for star gazing! Overall, it is a wonderful place!
