A wonderfully peaceful and relaxing holiday in a beautiful and fascinating place. Thanks to Harvey, Paulina, Balto and Gatto, we felt at home, as if we were staying with friends rather than in a resort. The sounds, sights, and smells of the forest and ocean are wonderful, so that even just sitting by the shore is delightful. Kayaking and other boat trips and excursions were a lot of fun, and the swimming is great (if you can stand 30C (86F) water!). The local fruit and exotic juices were a real treat. Paulina, her grandchildren, and everyone else we met were patient as one of us practised speaking Spanish. The flight from San Jose in a small plane is also fun, and Harvey makes the transfer from and to the airport in Golfito easy. Altogether a delightful holiday.
