We had a fantastic stay. As stated in some of the previous reviews, the service, food, and accomodations were all top notch. In particular, we had a number of dietary restrictions that were addressed without problem - and the food was consistently exceptional. It seemed like each meal was better than the last. Service was phenomenal as well. We travelled right after Thanksgiving - so it was not yet high season - and there were only a few other couples there with us.
We loved the isolated location and being close to nature. The tours we excellent and Carlos was a great guide. We did a river kayak tour, a waterfall hike and a tour of the local botanical garden - all of which were highly enjoyable.
This definitely was an 'adventure' vacation for us - and the isolation may not suit everyone - but if you are interested in wildlife and nature you cannot miss here. Be prepared to see reptiles, birds, and a wide array of jungle animals. Also be prepared for the sun to be really strong (lots of sun screen!) and sporadic rain (we had some short showers just about every evening).
Overall, we highly recommend Playa Nicuesa and we look forward to returning there. C & C
