My experiences in Nicuesa Lodge belong to my best. The nature-orientated, really ecologically conducted lodge, the cozy accommodation, the home-made light and tasteful meals, the helpful, friendly and qualified stuff are the best you can imagine. And not only many species of birds, snakes, basilisks, frogs, insects, monkeys, racoons can be seen there, you can watch anytime the charming Coaties and the funny Scarlet Macaws. By night you can see a sky with myriades of stars without any light pollution, you can listen to the fascinating sounds of the rainforest, sometimes a giant tree braking down with a thunder halling through the rainforest. I never felt so near to nature than there. But most exciting was my face-to-face encounter with a Waleshark, the biggest fish, who followed our boat on a tour through the Golfo Dulce for more than one hour. Gustavo, one of the nice guides, went into the water to swim with the shark. The guided Waterfall-trail with José, hitting the fallen trees and clearing up our path with his machete, telling us where to put each step walking trough the flow and climbing the falls, representing us the plants and animals on the way, was another unforgettable adventure as well as the Mangrove-tour kayaking through the calm dreamlike landscape of the mouth of Rio Esquinas. Living in Nicuesa Lodge is like being in paradise.
