We've gone to Shawandha several times over the years, and just returned from yet another great 2 nights there with our 18 yr son. We are in the travel business and based in San Jose, so know most of the hotels around Puerto Viejo and also in the country (and many in Latin America as that is where we cover). Shawandha remains one of our favourites: great location beside playa Chiquita, one of the best little beaches in the country, comfortable charming cabins with a delightful balcony, a restaurant with excellent personal service and food, and all set in a very natural and little touched jungle setting where toucans, parrots and often howler monkeys appear. This time there was a change, an attractive pool beautifully designed to fit naturally into the ambience. Our 2 nights should really have been 3, as we felt slightly rushed given the 4 hour drive from San Jose. Overall the lodge is a marvellous natural place to relax. We'll be back within the year this time!
