I spent 10 days at this beautiful home away from home over Christmas. As everyone else has mentioned, the hospitality was warm and welcoming. I had the honour and pleasure of sharing a family meal with Luis and his two wonderful daughters. Thank you Elena for everything you did to make my stay so enjoyable. The sunsets with wine were breathtaking and I will never forget the laughs and fun I had at this amazing slice of paradise. I have fond memories of laying in the swing overlooking the ocean. There are other little hideaways you can go to and relax and enjoy the surrounding nature. Perfection!

We stayed here (in the Butterfly Lodge) for 6 nights and very quickly grew to love the place. I say 'grew to love' because it took a little adjusting to living without some of the things I have come to take for granted: the shower wasn't the most powerful and never really got above warm and there was no TV or Wi-Fi available at the lodge itself. The thing is, within one day I had realised just how little those things matter when you're staying at a place that is literally surrounded by the richness of Costa Rican life; being able to watch a tribe of more than 50 white-faced monkeys pass right by within yards of your balcony, over the space of an hour, is quite an experience; as is sitting in one of the many communal areas after dark, watching the storm clouds flashing over the Pacific ocean as you sip on a complimentary glass of wine in the company of your host. Our host during the 6 nights was Paulo, the son of the property owner. Evening chats with him elevated the stay to more than just a stay; we felt like valued guests at his home, sharing stories of our lives and travels over wine and whatever exotic fruit he'd brought for us to try. He was always looking to help us have the most enjoyable time, whether it be pointing out the best places around the lodge to spot the wildlife (such as a tree that toucans often stopped at to rest), or recommending local sights and experiences. Honestly, by the time we left, TVs and Wi-Fi connections were the furthest things from our minds. All in all, a fantastic 6 nights at a place we will definitely revisit, should we ever return to this beautiful country. Tips: Do your homework and make sure you have the right mosquito repellant, otherwise you will suffer. We used Trek 50 (50% DEET) and we didn't get bothered at all but I didn't last 5 minutes without it. Go to the Cascada el Pavon waterfall and stop off at the Cabinas y Restaurante Tilapias La Cascada en-route - two beautiful places to explore. GO WHALE WATCHING! We went once and ended up within 100 metres of a mother and (very playful) calf humpback whale for over 30 minutes, as well as running alongside a pod of 40+ dolphins for over 10 minutes. INCREDIBLE!!! I don't think it matters which company you go with, as they all work together (via radio) to give everyone the best chance, while remaining very respectful of the need not to violate the strict rules about distances and numbers. If you do need Wi-Fi, you can get it (for free) at the Rancho Remo restaurant, 5 minutes walk from the Lodge. I would recommend you hire a 4x4 for this area if you really want to see the best of it.

We visited the place in the offseason with three children, according to the friendly host the first time that they had had young guests. We couldn't tell, however - all five of us were very comfortable and felt very welcome. The house is architecturally unique, with lots of nooks and crannies for curling up with a good book or a deck of cards. There is a very peaceful atmosphere, accentuated by stunning views to the Pacific Ocean and the rich wildlife in the immediate forests surrounding the place. The breakfast was served at a very good restaurant a small walk away, which also became a favourite spot for dinner for all age groups. There are small traditions and things to discover, which shouldn't be given away here. It suffices to say that is a romantic spot with a different ambiance and really should be experienced. We will back some time, for sure.

Our stay in la uvita perdida was definitely the highlight of our tour through Costa Rica. Luis is a great host and we felt so amazingly warmly welcomed! This little paradise was very clean, modern and all was very nicely furnished. From our room, bathroom or balcony we could directly look into the forest and watch tucans and other animals. The main balcony gives a great view over the beach and the sea. We would have loved to stay there.
