My husband David and I spent 4 nights at Garden of Eden last week. Kip was on vacation but judging by his friends Sue and Dave who took over, he's an awesome guy. They were funny, interesting, attentive and great dinner partners. We ate there every night because Miguel's food was so damn good. Maria's cocktail of the day was a great complement. But let's be honest - it was a great standalone, too, as one day we went nowhere and just lazed by the pool. Garden of Eden is the only place on an island otherwise full of mangroves. To get anywhere else you travel by boat, which is typically done with their driver Chingo, or kayak. We kayaked to Red Frog Beach one day (about 40 minutes each way). We also went with Chingo on 2 day trips. One took us to various stops including Dolphin Bay (they were fairly scarce the day we were there but we did see a few fins and tails), sloth island (to play a game of spot the sloth), Coral Cay (great snorkeling), and Red Frog. The other day trip was mean to be to Zapatillas, but the weather wasn't right when we got there, so we detoured to Starfish Beach instead. Starfish has beautiful, calm water, lots of little huts with food and drink that people were enjoying, and not much of an area to lay your towel down because the jungle is right there. We also ziplined and hiked while we were there. Be careful with the zipliners as the guides are SO comfortable with heights and they act like you are, too!! We loved having our balcony door open every single minute of the day and night, enjoying the breeze and watching the hummingbirds. Oh, and playing with Zeus and Mavis!
