“Wonderful Ecolodge”
Reviewed 5 April 2006

Donna and Michael, expats from New York, have built a wonderful intimate ecolodge. The individual bungalows are lovely, set in a paradise of flowers.
We especially enjoyed kayaking in a nearby river, sailing with Michael on the Hobie Cat and seeing a baby anteater and sloth at a animal rescue center.

Reviewed 4 April 2006

My wife and I stayed at the Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge at the end of Feb, 2006 for three days. We absolutely loved it. Most of the accomodations are individual bungalows (which is where we stayed) and afford you tons of privacy. Unlike many resorts, there is no feeling of being crowded. The whole place has an aura of relaxation and the service is wonderful. By the end of your trip, you will definitely feel like you were staying with friends. My wife is vegetarian and she said that the best meals she had in Costa Rica were at the Playa Nicuesa. I'm not a vegetarian and I agree. If you must have air conditioning, then you will not do well at this place, as it does get a bit hot (most noticeably at night when you are trying to sleep), but if you are going to a rainforest lodge, you really shouldn't be expecting AC. All in all, we loved everything about the place and would highly recommend it.
