The cabins are located approximately 1.5 km off the main road up a very rough track which can be accessed by a 4x4 or on foot.There is only a very small town with a few shops and restaurants near this junction.If you've got your own 4x4 then fine,otherwise getting around will not be easy.We stayed for 3 nights and remained in or around the resort,soaking up the incedible birdlife,butterflies,monkeys and other creatures which are plentiful,not to mention the active volcano in the distance.Simply lying in a hammock on the porch of the cabin for a few hours was a hugely enjoyable experience,and not something I would normally do at home.The meals were very good althogh choice was limited to two set meals (meat or veg).However you must remember there are only about 8 cabins.There is no mains electricity but we found the solar power adequate.Bring a torch to get around at night though as there is limited lighting.Be prepared for the odd snake basking on the grass near your cabin or ants even venturing inside it as you are so close to nature.The gauze covered window frames mean you can hear every shriek or sound at night.It was a great experience.
