My associate and I stayed at the Mariposa Jungle Lodge while conducting a feasibility study of a zipline canopy tour to be built locally.
Meals made to order and requests granted (I never liked tomato soup but would travel back just to have it as an appetizer). Room was immaculate. The surroundings are unmolested rain forest. The grounds are well maintained. You must climb the bird-watching tower.
But the best part is the staff. The locals who work there are as friendly and accommodating as I have ever found. They proud of their heritage yet embrace tourism activity. The owners, Jim and Sharyn, seal the deal. They bound with you in moments. I felt as though I was visiting with long lost friends and family each evening.
