We stayed for six nights in Yiguirro house. It is well away from the road, so we had no traffic noise. It was clean, well-stocked, and very comfortable. Mark asked us every day if there was anything we needed. We were given plenty of information about places to eat, gas stations, shops, etc. And Mark is really good at drawing maps!
We enjoyed the hammocks, the rocking chairs on the deck, and watching the birds come to eat fruit on the side of the deck. Yes, there were a few bugs, but it is in the middle of the jungle. It could not have been cleaner in those surroundings.
The breakfast was amazing every day, and we were always asked if we wanted seconds, more coffee, etc. And our daughter loved the hot chocolate with whipped cream made for the kids. We took advantage of the games at the breakfast area, and had fun sitting on our deck playing Pass the Pig when it was raining too hard to hike.
The night hike was very fun, and Rolando made sure our daughter learned a lot and enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the hike to the waterfall, especially because we conversed with the howler monkeys most of the way.
We were very glad to have a car while staying here. It is 30 minutes from La Fortuna, and there are only two lunch or dinner options within walking distance (one being delivered pizza).
Something that made our trip easy to plan is receiving nearly immediate responses to e-mails. All our questions were answered, tours booked, and directions sent well ahead of time, so all we had to do was get there and enjoy it.
