As so many other reviews have said, Sol y Luna was the perfect spot for our Costa Rican vacation. We were going to Montezuma in mid-November and wanted some place authentic and more isolated than a hotel. After reviewing all the amazing reviews on Sol y Luna, I email Patricia and Simon for more information. Even before we got to Costa Rica, they were incredibly helpful. We had tight travel arrangements and they helped us plan our trek from San Jose airport. Once we arrived, Simon greeted us and showed us to our lovely Luna bungalow. The bungalow is small, but perfect for a couple. We had a large bed and day bed, plenty of closet space, along with a kitchen equipped with small gas stove and a large fridge. Everything you could need was there (wine opener, espresso maker, you name it)! Additionally, the bathroom is huge, with an amazing shower with hot water that we enjoyed after long days of exploring nearby. The garden is beautiful and designed specifically for the wildlife in the area. We had a beautiful bush next to the porch that attracted humming birds and butterflies every morning. We also had visitors from other critters, including howlers and white faced monkeys.
Simon and Patricia provided us with a detailed map of the area, including recommendations on where to eat and what to see; they even set up some time for us to fish with the local fisherman. They would stop by in the morning to see if we needed anything, and even did our laundry for us! It was like staying with family.
The location of the bungalows is great. Like others have said, it is about 2 miles from either Montezuma or Cabuya. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the walk and exercise in the morning. You would run into the wildlife, or walk along the beaches and before you knew it, you were in town! Some may want to rent an ATV to get back and forth if you have any hesitations because of the distance, but it really isn't necessary. There was plenty to do in the area, we stayed for 9 nights and spent our days doing activities like zip lining, hiking or surfing, followed by relaxing on the beach or in the bungalow. It was the perfect vacation.
Thank you again, Patricia and Simon for your hospitality and your beautiful bungalows. We hope to see you again soon! Pura Vida!
