A few days ago we had stayed 3 nights at the Toucan Stay Inn. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay there. The hosts Wendy and Cristobal catered to our every needs and made our stay most comfortable. We are vegan and Wendy made us vegan meals for breakfast and baked vegan banana bread for us. They had everything you needed to enjoy the area including free internet on their laptop. Beach towels, float, snorkel gear, coolers, boogie boards, and bicycles all for the guests to use. It is a small and intimate place great for couples. There was only one other couple staying there at the same time and we enjoyed there company as well as our hosts. The air conditioning was refreshing and they had a number of DVD's to watch on a rainy day. The property is all fenced in and there is parking for your car behind the locked gate. The beach which is quite nice and clear and great for swimming is a three minute walk from behind the Inn. Most beaches in Costa Rica are rough and therefore not great for visability for snorkeling. However here in Punta Uva the visability on the day I snorkeled was about 50 feet. There were some nice coral and quite the number of fish to see. Nothing like the Florida Keys but but very good for Costa Rica. Lots of wildlife in the area, especially the howler monkeys. Overall a great value and a pleasurable experience.
