Eco Friendly eco tourism lodge, located across from Puerto Jimenez. Fantastic place, with a tree fort feel. Friendly staff, and a very much at home feeling - in the sense that it is like going to a family cottage. You have the run of the place, and are made to feel like home. (IE if you want a drink when the bar is not tended, you're more than welcome to make it.)
Also at its peak there would only ever be 40 people at the lodge. Which is really nice - in the evening they sit everyone - all guests at a long table for "family dinner" and you get to meet other interesting people from all over the world and listen to their stories of what they did that day.
The food was also fantastic. While I am not a vegetarian, they do have a very good sense of this - and it would be a good place for someone who was a vegetarian. It would also be a good place for someone who had food sensitivities. As it is so small they can easily accommodate - whereas bigger places would have difficulty doing this. The evening appetizers are delicious.
Had a great time. Will be back for sure.
