I think of Hotel Villas Gaia as a little paradise on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It was the most likable we've been to. The people who work there are very friendly, especially the owners, a Dutch couple. The restaurant has very nice typical food served with care. It's also open every day and from early till late. The casitas are spread over the junglegarden: each casita has a balcony,where you can sit and watch the colourfull birds and butterflies,we loved it.The rooms are clean, with fan and air-conditioning, a nice bathroom and a locker for your valuables.There is a refreshing swimmingpool at the top with an excellent view on the ocean, we enjoyed it during daytime, but also in the evenings. The first morning the gardener showed us a sloth, hanging with its baby in a tree nearby the swimmingpool, so lovable. We explored the whole region from that point, the people from the hotel helped us to get it organized. We went to Corcovado, we explored the mangroves by kayak, so impressing. We couldn't miss a canopytour and spotted a lot of animals (spidermonkeys and others, a dangerous small green frog, ara's, toekans....) The hotel organizes walks in the jungle with a guide, early in the morning or at night, not to miss, so exciting. One day we should go back, thanks for the wonderfull time we had there ...
