Decided to stay at the villa after visiting the Wildlife Sanctuary on the same property. The villas are beautiful with breathtaking view of the pacific ocean. Excellent service. The owner of the hotel decided to help out the sanctuary by offering his property for its relocation.

Does American currency work? Can you use US bank cards?
Yes to both. Upon check-in, they take your credit card info and you run a “tab” during your stay and they charge your card once upon checkout. (Which helps with internationally usage fees the card charges)

There is no bird feeders. They have a restaurant with a great menu. It is expensive but the food is amazing. I can’t answer your question about the trail. There is a wildlife sanctuary on the property that we took pictures at. Not the same as the wild but good to see the work they do to save injured animals. I can’t say enough good things about the place. The view is stunning and people are great. I think every week about going back for more vacation time. Rent a vehicle its a must.
