Walter was a great host and translator. Hope to return for another stay with him in a year or so. Great knowledge of the area. we missed breakfast both morning but I recommend you don't. Monkeys come out as well as some other wildlife.

We did not stay at the Lodge since we arrived at Golfito on the Windstar and did not want to take their tours. So I had emailed Walter at the Lodge and he arranged for Achim to meet six of us at the dock. Achim and a van driver promptly met us and drove us about 35 minutes to a gravel road and a very secluded trail where Ethel, an ambitious ecolodge owner, is getting established. She has landscaped a somewhat steep trail up the side of her mountain and charges about $35 to visit her private property. There are more than 20 waterfalls along the trail which were calm during the dry season (January). She surprised us with fruit drinks and fresh fruit at the top of the trail. Much welcome on this hot day. Achim has interesting stories to share as well. This is not a tour for everyone since the hike up the incline is a bit steep. But for those who want to see the Costa Rica jungle in its true form, I'd recommend it. You can enjoy a cool waterfall pool as well if you are sure of foot.

La Purruja Lodge is located between Golfito and Rio Claro, on the paved road. My daughter commented that it was the first time that she had ever stayed anywhere, that had no TV, Air Conditioning, or Hot Water. This quaint, beautifully landscaped, Lodge, is from another time, before modern conveniences made their way to Golfito. If you seek a quiet spot to sit and relax, read a book, surrounded by nature, then this is it! La Purruja Lodge is not far from the Sport Fishing docks in Golfito, and way more reasonable than the hotels on the water. There is also a nice outdoor grill and Rancho with pool table, where you could grill your daily catch.

Room Tip: Der oberste Bungalow mit dem Zimmer rechts sprach uns am meisten an.
