Our family trip to the Red Frog Bungalows was more than I could ever ask for. We were a traveling family of six, including my 2 year old son. Scott and Mikey welcomed us with so much warmth and hospitality. We arrived late, but Bobo had dinner waiting for us. After a long day of travel from the states, it was surprising. We have been to a few places were the cantina was closed for the night.
The next morning we woke up to fresh pressed coffee and another amazing meal made by Bobo. From then on the fun was a blur...
The boys went surfing with Scott and Toluch or T.O. They had a super epic time! Then, another day they went fishing and caught some black fin and yellowfin tuna...largest about 50 pounds. It was all caught on a go pro which we will kindly send to Scott soon. We also have some great video of Chato the wing man/ first mate. I wasn't on the boat but the energy and vibe from the boat was amazing!Scott definitely knows how to make people stoked out!
As for the girls and my two year old son, we had a blast exploring the jungle and the beaches. The beach out front is crazy beautiful, crystal clear water and very private. Everyone was extremely friendly. And we never had a problem with sand flies. We went on a quite a few boat excursions and it was awesome. We saw white faced monkeys and sloths which whom Nicco the gardener is expert at seeking out. And of course the red frogs, I discovered you can't search for them, they come to you. Since one night walking on a trail one landed on my foot.
The Bungalows are Eco friendly, which means no electricity; except for at night when your solar panels run your lights and your bedside fan. Which was surprisingly comfortable after a day. It is humid but what do you expect when you are in the jungle? Elvira the house keeper was amazing and cleaned our bungalow everyday. Herself and Mikey were extra cool with my little guy. He was in love.
I am suggesting so many of my own friends and customers to theBungalows... Check it out!
