If you only go to one place in Costa Rica, go here. If you go to more than one place, make sure this is your last stop. If you start here and go other places, your trip will be spent in the disappointed state of noticing that nothing you do after GDR will quite live up to the splendor of your experience here—honestly.
We were two families traveling with a twelve and a thirteen-year old. Each of the smaller cabinas perfectly accommodated a family of three. We loved the activities that were offered and also enjoyed doing little else other than lazily floating in the pool while looking up at the Scarlet Macaws as they flew about the forest canopy.
Simon and Chantelle, along with the staff, work diligently behind the scenes to provide stunningly delicious meals, wonderfully clean and beautifully decorated accommodations, as well as effortless transportation to and from the retreat as well as the activities.
We will be back to enjoy this special corner of the world again.
