“True Costarican beach experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

The best place to really enjoy the Pacific in Costa Rica. The last stretch fro the main road is a bit bumpy in the middle of nature. The people who run the place are extremely kind. Once you drive up to the lodge you will fall in love with the view. We saw monkeys, iguanas, red macaws flying overhead, the night filled with stars, and when you go down to the beach it feels like you're the only one there.
No condos, no crowds, no crime, no garbage, only peace, nature and the real "Pura vida" experience. MUST STAY HERE!
