We spent 7 nights at Geckoes in Casa Del Bosque and it was supremely relaxing.
Location: about 15 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive from the main road, set amongst a perfect patch of sculpted rainforest, replete with howler monkey's, toucans, hummingbirds, native squirrels and other wildlife entertainment. From there it is a short walk to restaurants, a little further to Cocles beach (with lifeguards) and a short drive or US$6 taxi ride to town.
Accommodation: jungle safari luxury with beautiful hardwood construction, four-poster draped bed, rainforest shower, an outdoor kitchen, hammocks, a barbeque and plunge pool. Surrounded by forest, it's very private and idyllic.
Hosts: the wonderful Tom and Zoe, a Dutch/UK combination who have travelled the globe and found a small piece of paradise to shape and share with the rest of us. Always friendly, never intrusive and very diligent and helpful.
What more could a couple ask for!
