How great to actually live and sleep in a treehouse and we loved our time in Treehouse #3 with an actual tree growing right though the room. We have a 7 year old boy who was in heaven to be staying in such a cool place and he quickly became the best sloth spotter ever. And there were several sloths to see. We also loved the hummingbirds at the mainhouse and the tranquil atmosphere of the whole place. Lucy and Mark were great hosts even before we arrived with providing excellent correspondence and advice and ideas on what to do for side trips. We enjoyed the breakfasts and meeting the other treehouse residents and comparing notes. The walk to the waterfall was really nice but would have been easier without a 7 year old who is used to flat terrain but he made it (in other words, he didn't get left at the waterfall!)
We ended up doing the 1/2 day Balsa River trip (class 2/3) and it was excellent and well worth it. We were not sure is a 7 year old could do but it was fine and there were kids younger than he was. We later went into La Fortuna to pick up the pictures on CD from Wave Adventures and really enjoyed eating at the Lava Lounge which was recommended by Mark and Lucy.
If anyone is looking for a unique place to stay, this is it. Not often does one get to fulfill their childhood dreams of staying in a treehouse. Pura Vida!!
