My husband and I were traveling through Central America and spent a weekend in the Tree House. Foster's has a tree house located in the top of a giant Mango tree. This isn't for the faint of heart (or more than 2 people). If you want to relive your tree house dreams of childhood, this is the way to go. A very tall spiral staircase leads you to a little room set up with a queen size bed, toilet stall, sink and panoramic views. Mind you, there are no blinds. However, the trees provide lots of cover. An outdoor shower is located on the back deck (no hot water when we were there) and a rooftop access has two lawn chairs to enjoy AMAZING views. This is NOT luxurious, but incredibly fun! A travel log on the walls from previous travels provides for a little entertainment. According to this graffiti, there is often macaws and monkeys who frequent the canopy trees with you. No A/C, but the screened in windows provide a canopy breeze. There are bugs - where aren't there bugs in Central America?! I wasn't too bothered by the gorgeous saucer-sized butterfly who stayed on our window one afternoon to shelter from a passing rain shower. Sleeping with the birds as the wind rustled the leaves was just lovely. Because it was sweltering and we knew we wanted a hot shower before hopping on the plan the next day, we stayed the last night in the king cabana - views from National Geographic! (including the family of fruit bats who lived outside the bathroom window). As you can tell, I'm perfectly content to see nature when I travel. I was NOT looking for a spa, luxury vacation on this occasion. I would not have found one Foster's. It's a quiet family establishment trying hard to survive the newly built commercial resorts. It would be a great base camp for divers. I had just spent 4 months living in the serious jungle, so this was clean, safe, and private. I always travel to Roatan in the off-season since it's half-price for the same weather, same location, same low-key people. We enjoyed walking down the board walk to Bite on the Beach where they feed the "family" of morays (HUGE!) and a barrcuda at the end of the night. I couldn't get enough of the wahoo. Also loved the Wine Cellar. Sitting barefoot, eating to-die-for creme brulee with a live band - divine. Yes, it's a fine dining restaurant where you leave you flip flops at the door. :) Too cute. But that's Roatan - easy-going beach life. No wonder so many ex-pats live here. ALWAYS BRING YOUR OWN BUG SPRAY AND WEAR IT! Sand fleas will ruin a vacation. Islanders have no idea what bug spray is - must be immune.
