Alby Lodge in Cahuita is fabulous! I stayed there recently for a week with beautiful gardens and lots of special birds visit. I'm a birdwatcher and was very pleased at the many birds who visited. Yvonne and Thomas are very helpful. I was late a day in coming and they graciously rearranged accommodations to fit my needs, they brought me a special sliced up fruit with spices that I noticed on their property, loaned me a T shirt to go snorkeling, loaned me a special bird book a guest saved for me as well as other helpful books and called for a national park guide for me who then recommended a great bird guide who I loved. We had a great time together. They organized a snorkeling trip and a cacao tour. All tours and guides they recommended were great.
All the guests who stayed at Alby were very friendly and I spent some time with a Canadian family and we ate together several times and played cards. I loved the loud howler monkeys and the parrots and toucans and spectacled owl who landed on the property. The yard staff and cleaning staff are very friendly. My place was cleaned every day and the palm thatched cabins are fabulous with bed mosquito netting, beautiful wood, driftwood handles and hooks, and raised foundation and roofs made with natural materials and a porch with a chair and hammock are very inviting. A common lodge has a kitchen and sitting area that are very pleasant. Their dogs are also very friendly. I highly recommend staying at Alby Lodge and if I go back to Cahuita I'd definitely do it again.
