My family spent four nights at Playa Nicuesa - and from the moment we arrived we were captivated. A Coati greeted us as we arrived at the lodge - and throughout our visit, we saw dozens of animals - White faced monkeys, three toed sloths, leaf-cutter ants, golden orb weaver spiders... I went on the briefest of fishing excursions and got into a run of Barracuda, catching a mess for dinner. Oh, and the meals - every meal was lovingly prepared from scratch every day - breads were made at one meal for the next - and every day presented a bounty of fruit either on the table cut simply or blended into smoothies or just iced drinks... The staff was so attentive and yet low profile. While the rooms are exposed to the air (which is great by the way) the cleaning staff still made the rooms seem Hilton fresh.... A highlight for me was the waterfall hike - on the way we saw monkeys and birds of all sorts - and our guide saw a Puma harassing a wild fowl... at the top of the mountain, we arrived to an ice cold spring fed pool for swimming - just the 5 of us... It was remarkable. If you have any interest in the outdoors, and particularly if you are interested in sustainable models for tourism, you must travel to this place. We will be back for sure. I don't want to ruin your experience, so that's enough detail... There is no place like this.
