How cool to come home and tell friends you spent a week in a jungle on a remote beach in Costa Rica. Becky and I are entering our sixtieth year and we wanted to do something memorable.. We took our three daughters and their husbands and lived like the Swiss Family Robinson at Casa Bambu. Weather was fabulous. The house was roomy and comfortable and adaptable to weather and time of day--wide open to the jungle or closed up and private. William, the caretaker, taught us how to catch dinner out of the ocean by surf fishing, which we did. He took us on an amazing wildlife photo hike through the famous Corcovado National Park. We had four kinds of monkeys all around us in the trees. Plus three toed sloths and anteaters and scarlet macaws and toucans. Casa Bambu is superior to the swank Lapa Rios up on the hill. We went up there to eat breakfast and lunch and have happy hour, but far preferred living right on the beach at Casa Bambu.
