This was our second trip to L&L, the first being my our honeymoon. After that visit we decided it was a great trip for the entire family of six. Our kids are older from 11-16 and despite the fact that we worried about the retreat aspects of no A/C, no TV, or other "distractions" everyone had a spectacular time. This year we went in mid-June--rainy season. This was also a concern, but it was not an issue at all. Yes it rains frequently, but the duration is general short and occurs at night. As before the owners and staff were AWESOME. The food is wonderful, the setting is spectacular and the overall experience is authentic and wonderful. I highly suggest partaking in the activities onsite; the horseback riding and trip to the Tico farm. Obviously, the other excursons were experiences we got to share with our children that they will never forget.
