Of all the 5 trips to CR this was by far the best! If it wasn't for Kim and Mell I wouldn't wright this review, I wouldn't want anyone else to know about this gem in the jungle! But the owners are the kindest and most helpful people we have ever met, so here I go.
First off this is in the osa, if you aren't familiar with this then your gunna need to be prepared. You will have animals and bugs in the house. This is more like a luxury tree house. You will also have monkeys, toucans, and scarlet macaws in the tree by the shower in the morning! If you have the money rent a 4x4 and drive it from puerto jimenez. There are many rivers you have to ford, there aren't bridges down there so you will get used to it and it was one of our funest parts of the trip. If you don't there is a collective taxi that runs twice a day for a couple bucks. Make sure you bring more food, beer, and ice than you think you need. You will be eating and drinking more than you think. There is a good bar within walking distance but it is expensive. One week was not long enough, we felt like we were just getting comfortable when we left on the seventh day. Don't bring to much, your gunna be in your bathing suit the hole time any way. Bring more sunscreen and bug repellent than you think you need. Go sailing with Kim and Mell! This was the highlight of our honeymoon! It was so much fun, and if your lucky you might see some whales, dolphins, or a double rainbow!
If you are a fun social group, than you will want to hang out with Kim and Mell. They are a lot of fun and very helpful. We wouldn't have driven to carate if it wasn't for there "if you don't go, you won't know" attitude! And just getting to carate was a great adventure. Make sure you have enough time to do nothing for a couple days, if your lucky you mite see Kim's wicked ping pong skills! All in all the house and the new friends made our honeymoon perfect!
