    Truly a unique lodge. Literally has something (many things) for everyone. Best wildlife viewing I've found in CR. From pigs to porpoises, monkeys to macaws. Best nearshore snorkeling I've had on the Pacific side as well, clearest water and most species (and big fish!). I...More

    We really like the look of this property for our trip in April 2017. We like the beach house but are concerned about noise as it looks like the kitchen and dining room are underneath it. We're not fit enough for the tree house and the alternative would be the cabin.

    Hello the beach house is fine and no noise in the night. We slept in the little house just behind the beach house and were happy with that aswell.

    Kayaking through the Mangroves sounds fantastic but how stable are the Kayaks ? As a keen photographer I would like to take a camera with me but is this a daft idea ?

    We have some "fish and dive" kayaks with a wide beam that are very stable. Or sometimes photographers go in a double kayak with a partner that does all the paddling.
