“Be prepared for insects...big ones!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2011

As a lodge this place was pretty good. The cabins are spacious and clean. The pool was refreshing. The food was really very good and the restaurant building quite comfortable. However.....there are a lot of big and scary bugs everywhere and they are able to get into the rooms. The windows are screened but things still get in. Generally in Costa Rica you get used to ants in the bathroom and a few bugs here and there but this is the only place I could barely sleep due to fear of creepy crawlies. Our friend had a baby boa constrictor in her room, and when we woke up, there was an 8 inch diameter spider on our wall. Mosquito nets would help if they had them. It's a cool adventure and I'm glad I did it. Just keep in mind you are in a secluded natural park environment.
