Our family (parents and two kids ages 13 and 18) just returned from 10 lovely days at Agua Vista. What can we say that hasn't already been said by many? We stayed in Casa Trogan and the daily visits from monkeys and different varieties of birds, butterflies, agoutis, and coatis put us at the jungle's doorstep where we could view everything from the comfort of our own plunge pool. Truly...an amazing experience.
The daily maid service along with a well-equipped kitchen and communal infinity pool meant we could take (the looooonnnggg) walk into town once a day or not at all depending on our whim. We cooked in a lot (which we love to do) and had dinner in town at the excellent Cocolores and a few other restaurants a handful of times. The walk into town is significant, especially in the hot weather. But with the appropriate footwear and attitude, this is part of the adventure. A cab ride back up the long hill cost $6, so it was no big deal. This spot is perfect for people who are ready to relax and really enjoy the jungle sights and sounds. (And a glass or two of something chilled, perhaps).
