This was the nicest place we stayed while exploring the Ruta del Sol. The hotel is very picturesque and surrounded by lush green vegetation. The rooms are spacious with nice patios or balconies where one sit and see all sorts of interesting birds. We ate at the restaurant several times during our stay and everything was delicious. The staff are outstanding and very helpful. They arranged day tours for us to visit Isla de la Plata and the beautiful beach at Los Frailes. The lodge is a 5 minute drive to Puerto Lopez. It's easy to get to and from town via moto-taxi.
