Bolita is a place to see the natural world of Costa Rica off the beaten path. I enjoyed great hosts for my time there. If you want to get away from the tourist hordes and enjoy a quite relaxing place this is it. I love being in tune with nature and my needs with what Ron and company have built in this lovely abode on the edge of Corcavado.National Park. Here is a way to see a lot of what the park offers without the hassle of setting up a trip into the actual park.
