If you want an awesome Costa Rican nature experience - look no further. Stay here!Terry and Katya are amazing hosts and take a lot of care and thought into each and every detail to make your stay great. Wonderful people. Their entire staff is outstanding as well.
I'm not really sure where to begin - this place is magical. Breathtaking views, outstanding bird and animals all around. Despite having rain (we knew we were gambling on it since we booked in the green season) - we STILL saw so much. They have great trails to take right there at the lodge. We went on our own and saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, toucans, macaws, butterflies and even an anteater! You don't even need to leave the lodge to see things though - you can sit and enjoy the macaws flying by daily, toucans and monkeys come right by the deck too.
We made wonderful friends from all over world, as you get to know the other guests who are staying there too. It's fun to all come together in the evenings for happy hour and share the daily adventures/sightings.
You can't go wrong with any of the rooms. We had the Monkey House room but all of them are great. Terry was just finishing a cool new room too - I told him he can call it the "Mel Penthouse" :) The food is wonderful. Santos works hard to make sure everything tastes great and I now have to loose the extra pounds I gained (hence the nickname Terry gave me for the week "Dinner Bell Mel" :).
THANK YOU, Terry & Katya and all of the staff. We can't wait to come back and see you!! Much Love from your friends from Michigan - Mel & Brent
