If you are looking to get off the grid and have a truly unique experience with lots of local flavor then you must check out Red Frog Bungalows. The property is tucked away on two acres of tranquil jungle and it is just a few short steps from a lovely stretch of beach. Scott, Maiky, Chato, Taluch, Bobo, Nico and Elvira welcomed us as if we were part of their family. Chato and Taluch filled our days with surfing, snorkeling and hand-line fishing as well as excursions to a indian cacao plantation, a bat cave, etc. Scott made sure that all of the dieteary needs were met (many food allergies and two vegeterians in the family) while Bobo prepared fresh, authentic and tasty meals with lots of locally sourced ingredients. Our evenings were filled with great music, stellar margaritas and lively banter with Scott and Maiky. As the adults carried on into the night the kids raided Scott's dvd collection and watched movies under the stars. Red Frog is a remarkable place - it's peaceful, it's quiet, it's secluded. It's environmentally responsibe. If you don't mind solar power and composting and if you can spend a vacation in a room with no phones, no tvs and no internet connections (you won't miss it!) then put RFB on your list. We found it to be a great place to disconnect from the real world while we reconnected as a family. Thanks for everything Scott - we will be back!!!
