This is a beautiful, artistic and adventurous place located on a mountainside inside the jungle and near the beach. It is not your typical resort without soul, but rather a place which is truly alive with it's gorgeous surroundings and very much a part of the community in which it resides. When we arrived, the owner had been out planting trees in the nearby village and is clearly a well-respected, integral member of his community. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed our stay immensely.
