We were thinking of staying in Cape Tribulation for 2 night in april, giving us one day there. I looked at the reviews for the "Cape Tribulation Guest House" and 90% of them were negative. I realise this is rainforest accomodation and am not expecting silk sheets and jacquzis, but it is rather expensive and many of the reviews talked of rat and cockroach infested hell holes. We have done back packing in our time. but feel we are a bit to old for that now.
I would like to stay at least one night in the area to get a feel for the place and everyone stated that the location was magnificent. To short circuit my research, has any one experience of staying anywhere they can recomend.
Alternatively, if you made a realy early start, could you do it as a day trip from Cairns, getting back late. I believe tour buses go up there for the day.
