Casa Linda was the last stop on our month long trip in Costa Rica and it is the place that we talk about as being simply the most awe inspiring and beautiful, it felt like living in the jungle book. We were travelling with our family - 2 teenage girls and our 9 year old son and their jaws dropped as they saw the house. Facing the beach with a wonderful porch, large and spacious inside with a beautiful kitchen and bathroom we knew it would be very hard to leave. Its quiet here apart from the animal cries but far from boring. Life slows done which is good because you want each day to last as long as possible. Every day we woke and just felt so lucky to be there, the nature is extraordinary, the beach beautiful with very calm (and warm) sea that time of year, the jungle paths simply wonderful to wander down with tall reaching trees and monkeys all around leading to other more or less deserted beaches. We brought all our food for 5 days and a block of ice, which lasted less, and we didn't hire a car, you only really need one to buy food back in Puerto Jim. We hiked to the waterfall which was quite an adventure - almost giving up - not knowing we were almost there. If you try this just keep going up the river and scrambling over the rocks. We took endless photographs of Monkeys and Scarlet Macaws, and loved seeing an anteater walk past our door. Washing up while looking at a black hawk who sat in a tree feet away from the kitchen's open window looking back at me from his daily perch, put a totally different spin on scrubbing plates. We all want to go back, the colours are still vivid in our minds eye and keep us going through England's grey winter days. There is absolutely nothing I can say that is negative about this place. We really loved it, and Lynn and William take great care in making sure that everything is ok while you are planning your trip and while you are there. Thank you! All the best, Cathy and family.
