Really the perfect place to experience the rainforest close-up, but with the luxury of comfortable rooms, delicious food and the possibility to do yoga, meditations or have a great massage treatment. I arrived at Samasati after a long flight from Europe and a direct transfer (by minibus arranged through Samasati) so for the first days I just relaxed and enjoyed arriving. I loved being there and can highly recommend it if you want to combine being in nature, supporting the preservation of a precious bit of rainforest and also exploring the wonderful south Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
When you want action there is so much to do and the Retreat Center will organise trips for you if you want. I loved Cahuita National Park and the day I spent floating down river on a canoe followed by a walk through the jungle and a "Chocolate tour" which included making some chocolate! We had a great guide and saw many birds and monkeys and it didn't even matter that it rained!
I also enjoyed visiting The Jaguar Rescue Center, just the other side of Puerto Viejo and walking around in the town itself. Exploring the coast on bike was also great fun.
Thank you to the whole staff for making my stay one that I will never forget and for creating such a fantastic place to visit.
