We've been traveling all over CR yearly since 1997, and El Perezoso is by far our favorite place. We return each trip, and have cut short visits to the Osa and other spots to get back there ASAP! I could go on and on about how beautiful it is, how spotlessly clean and comfortable the rooms, how spectacular the views, how friendly, helpful and accomodating the people...
The location, on a hill overlooking the Pacific, gets lovely cool breezes. No problems with insects (and I'm always the one who attracts them!) so we left our windows and door open all night, listening to the faint sound of the waves and waking to the songs of the many birds and occasional monkeys.
The area has everything you could want, from deserted beaches and waterfalls, horseback riding, sea kayaking and surfing to gourmet (yet amazingly inexpensive) restaurants. Watching the sun set over the ocean from the pool with a glass of wine-- just doesn't get better than that!
I'm so happy we found El Perezoso, and can't wait til February to get there!
