The Flying Crocodile is a beautiful home base for your exploration of the Nicoya Peninsula. And you can experience Costa Rica even if you don't leave the grounds, with the howler monkeys, iguanas, and plenty of lush vegetation. It manages to feel both luxurious and rustic (with the most rustic elements being the lukewarm showers and non-biting ants in the room, neither of which bothered me at all). The staff is warm and helpful, the food is delicious, and the bungalows are comfortable and attractive. Do yourself a favor and take a flight in the gyrocopter. The nearby beach is almost private, and fresh coconuts can be found at a neighboring hostel, with a beach view at its bar. I'm very much looking forward to my return.
