Casa Cayuco - all that we were hoping for and so much more! The location is breathtaking...almost surreal. It really is as beautiful as the photos and videos show, if not more so. We enjoyed our cabin (tortuga), which was literally footsteps from the beach. The staff ensured that it was cleaned daily at our convenience and our friendly and dependable gecko friends helped keep any unwanted insects away. The food was fresh, creative, tasty, and very healthy. Sue was very accommodating and thoughtful when it came to meals and our children (7 and 11).
We went on several excursions while at Casa Cayuco, under the knowledgeable and entertaining guidance of Lloyd (and often Sebastian - our son's new hero). The excursions were always well-explained, but never forced. While on our various amazing excursions, we were fortunate to see dolphins playing in our waves and swimming alongside the boat, monkeys, sloths, poisonous dart frogs, as well as a huge array of ocean life. The water was crystal clear and the snorkelling was incredible.
Casa Cayuco is paradise, but what makes it so special and unforgettable are the fantastic hosts, Lloyd and Sue (and their sidekicks, Angus and Bella). Nothing can compare to their hospitality! They are truly gifted at what they do. Our 7 year old (as well as the rest of us) was very sad to leave them.
We have not only had the experience of a lifetime, but feel that we have made friendships that we will always cherish. We are already trying to plan a return!
