My husband and I travelled to El Ramanso in early November of this year, despite it being rainy season. This place is exactly what we needed after our wedding! All of the positive reviews were 100% true when they say El Remanso is the perfect combination of relaxation, adventure and nature.
When we first arrived we were greeted by Adriana and Dani, the owners of the lodge who are absolutely wonderful! They make you feel right at home. The service continued to impress us as we met the waiters, bartender, office ladies and of course tour guide. Everyone really went out of their way to ensure we had an unforgettable trip and definitely made our stay so much better than your typical resort vacation. Gerardo, the tour guide is fantastic! He has such a wealth of knowledge and his passion really makes you excited for the wildlife you see while being at El Remanso. He even took us out on a private sloth hunt as we really wanted to see one and allowed us to repel down the tree where the canopy breakfast is.
The excursions are amazing. We did the waterfall repelling which was definitely a highlight as well as the canopy breakfast and nature hike. Definitely recommend these as well as the tide pools!
The food was fantastic - and I'm a hard one to please as I am so picky! I loved every meal and really enjoyed the beautiful views from the restaurant.
We saw so much wildlife while being at El Remanso. Scarlett macaws, toucans, sloths, all 4 species of monkeys, fur de lance, boa and even a puma sighting by another visitor while we were there! It is unreal waking up to the sound of howler monkeys and we loved how the staff are so passionate about the wellbeing of the wildlife living in their surroundings.
Now to our room..we stayed in La Guinda which was stunning! The view to the ocean was beautiful and the room was very clean. They just renovated the pool while we were there so we spend quite a bit of time in there as well as the beautiful beach. Although the waves were too dangerous to swim in the water, the beach was stunning and a must see.
I can go on and on about how perfect this trip was and I honestly have nothing negative to say. This was the trip of a lifetime and the memories created will forever impact us. Can't wait to return!
