Beautiful location. As soon as we arrived, saw otters fishing and playing in the river. Went swimming in the river which is part of the grounds, kingfishers flying all around and the mysterious sounds of the forest our soundtrack. Saw iguanas and toucans and all manner of beast that evening.
Room was big, but gloomy. Food was plentiful, but dull and overpriced. Staff were friendly. The rain forest trail was entertaining.
BUT we had a horse ride booked. On arriving at the stables, we were presented with pitiful and decrepit nags. The bones were sticking through their haunches, there were open sores around mouth and flanks. The alleged guide had spurs. Not only are they unnecessary, we saw plenty of locals riding without spurs, so it's not a cultural thing. if this resort makes such a song and dance about its commitment to wildlife, surely that care should extend to its own ani mals.
