this is where the concept of eco lodge must have been invented. the cabins were great. monkeys in the trees and lots of birds. we saw a tree full of toucans!! their walks and trips were over the top. the guides were totally dedicated and informed. the guides even gave slide presentations on various subjects. we got to meet the founder jovanna holbrook. the gardens were well maintained and loaded with birds. and the food was over the top. pasta dishes to die for and brick oven pizza. great salads and fruits. we were able to carb up for our jungle adventures. very reasonable prices too. if you go to costa rica don't miss this place. oh yeah, one of the best thing we did in our lives was the frog walk. night walking in the jungle and discovering the elusive glass frogs amoung many others. two species non the less. the guides were so sensitive to the enviornment that they would return the frogs to the exact area where they picked them up for examination. even if it was a 100 yards away, through streams and thick jungle. amazing!!
