This lodge is rustic to be sure. The beds are uncomfortable - nothing but springs. There is very little privacy - no way to cover the windows without closing the shutters and cutting off the little bit of air blowing into the hot space. It was very hot and humid. We took lots of showers to cool off but our towels would't dry. The food was just okay. For the good part - the grounds were beautiful. You are right on the ocean and close to town. The canal trips through the rainforest are wonderful and we saw lots of wildlife. We had a great guide - Anna.
