A simply beautiful lodge in one of the most gorgeous places on earth. Fantastic views (we saw humpbacks breaching minutes after arrival), great accommodation (the open sided Tiki huts are best and certainly the best value), fine food (Tuna sashimi, for example) and fun company.
Listen to howler monkeys at Dawn, watch Koati eat bananas steps from your room, witness amazing sunsets, watch scarlet macaws screech across the sky, swim in the warm, warm Pacific Ocean (watch the currents), hike deep into Corcovado and join the flocks of Pelicans in their revellry.
I have travelled all over the world to rainforests mountains and beachscapes and this may well be the most beautiful place I have ever seen.
Sure Terry (the host) has an ebullient personality which may not be to everyones taste but he makes you welcome and certainly spiced up our stay.
Stay more than 3 days-we didn't and regretted it.
Take some time to hike into Sirena station and stay overnight to see the Tapirs and your best chance to see big cats etc.
Drink LOTS of water!!
