There is really not much to add to all the other fantastic reviews, which I can only endorse. We had originally planned to stay two nights at the Howler Monkey Hotel, but ended up staying three because we enjoyed it so much. The location is great--away from the hustle and bustle of Montezuma and Santa Teresa. The cabanas are rustic, but clean and comfortable. Jim and his help are great guys, always ready to help. I particularly appreciated the early morning coffee. On our first night, we were invited to partake in a sashimi party. Fellow Montrealers had caught quite some tuna that morning and were sharing it with all of the guests. We all sat around the big table and chatted and laughed. A wonderful evening in a family-like atmosphere. We loved being awoken by the howler monkeys every night and having a resident iguana keep us company--it gave it the extra exotic feel. We also enjoyed taking the kayaks out to Cabuya Island and hiking in Cabo Blanco National Park. Just make sure you get there before noon so you can make it to the beach and back. And watch those white-headed capuchin monkeys! Two final tips: enjoy a simple, but delicious and inexpensive dinner at Marvin's restaurant (across from the closest supermarket) and go fishing with Jim's next door neighbour. He's a great guy and will even clean and prepare the fish you catch in the most delicious way. All in all a fantastic experience in an--as of yet--undiscovered little place.
