I went to El Remanso for my best friends wedding in September 2013. The place is absolutely beautiful and the kind staff goes out of their way for their guests. Upon arrival I was greeted by the owners Adri and Dani who served a drink and explained the layout, amenities, and activities. The cabins and grounds are very clean and I enjoyed falling asleep at night to the sounds of the rain forest and the waves crashing on the beach below. The meals each day were delicious and well planned with a variety of options.
I enjoyed exploring the rainforest with friends for a week leading up to the wedding. One of the most memorable hikes was up a river to reach a magnificent waterfall in the Rain Forest, and then down to the beach where the river spills into the Pacific Ocean. We observed many kinds of wildlife and only to name a few; spider monkeys, howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, and many types of frogs. We were able to take pictures of red-eyed tree frogs that look like they belong in National Geographic.
Adri and Dani also helped organize a fishing trip out of Puerto Jimenez where we observed whales breaching, dolphins swimming in front of the boat, and I was able to catch a 60 lb yellow fin tuna. We brought tuna and dorado back to the wedding and the chefs prepared sashimi as an appetizer and seared filets for lunch the next day.
After 15 years of travel across the globe this is the first review I have written. The experience was most memorable and I cannot wait to go back.
