I stayed at Chimuri for the month of September while I volunteered at the Jaquar Rescue Center. It was absolutely wonderful! My cottage (Hawk's Spirit) was beautiful - very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and with everything I needed for my extended stay. And I can't say enough about what a fabulous, welcoming host Kiana is! She was always available to answer questions about anything. I enjoyed all our chats very much, and she made me feel like I had a real friend there. She really made my whole experience there even more special.
There is a small shop with essentials just a 10 minute walk away, or, you can ride a bike (10 minutes) or take a taxi into town ($4) for anything else you might need. Don't miss the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings! There are a couple restaurants within walking distance (I highly recommend Banana Azul just 5 minutes away) and MANY more in town and beyond.
The rates are incredible for such a wonderful place. I would stay at Chimuri again in a heartbeat!
