The place is situated in the heart of wilderness. Scarlet macaws fly overhead all of the time! Monkeys in the palm trees, even.
All of the cabins here are like Robinson Crusoe. We stayed in one of the tiki huts which is an A-frame on a platform in the jungle hillside. The side facing the ocean is open and you can listen to the wildlife and the waves down below. Super romantic place for a couple. Normally the bathroom is is a few feet down a wooden walkway and shared with the other tiki hut but because it was off season and we just happened to be the only guests and so we basically owned the place ran around wherever and however we wanted to!
I loved the food and the hosts. Terry and Katia are entertaining and can advise you where to go in the jungle that's all around the cabins. You can and should go hike in Corcovado park as well. They have a cute dog, Margarita, who will help you find crabs on the beach.
