As a couple with one 2-years-old child, we avoid big resort for more wild places but we like to have comfort. Shawandha Lodge is the perfect place for that.
Beautiful bungalows in the middle of a rain forest, beautiful and very quite beach 100 meters from the lodge, very nice dining place and a cute little swimming pool.
The bungalows have big openings with mosquito webs allowing you to hear animals during night and feel like sleeping in the forest. Therefore there is no aircon but warmth is not so strong in the morning so you can sleep well anyway.
Staff is very nice and the French owner makes you feel like in a Bed&Breakfast.
If you want to have a more backpacker ambiance, you go and have dinner 50 m from there in small outside restaurants with concert, pool tables, parties ...
Animals are all around, we met one morning a sloth crossing the road.
The lodge is 5 hours car from San José airport but the road through the mountain rain forest is worth it.
Very very nice place.
