When you arrive in Bolita, you immediately feel at home. There is a feeling of peace, there are never not more than a handfull of people there, its a place to chill out and come down. Its not so full as Sirena-Station, its a place of silence. What makes Bolita so special is that man is at one at nature.
Bolita is realy well placed on a hill, in a clearing in the middle of the jungle. From here you have an incredible view of the Golfo Dulce.
The animals come directly to the house, you are awoke by the howler monkeys and in the evening, the tukans will come very close to you.
Everything that you need is here. A clean and well equiped kitchen, dining area, hammocks, clean showers and toilets. You need to bring your food, but the basics like pasta, rice, tomatosauce you can buy there.
There are many well prepared trails, you can swim in the waterfalls and also take a long hike along the Rio Tigre. There is also a lookout with an fantastic view to the jungle and the Golfo Dulce. There is a possibility to walk directly into the Corcovado.
Ron, the owner, is superfriendly and a wonderful host. He has created a realy special and unbelievable place. A place, that is very rare to find.
All in all I can say, Bolita was the highlight in our 4-week vacation, Bolita was the best.
Thanks Ron, for the wonderful time. Pura Vida!
