The way to the lodge is very rough, but its worth doing it! We spend there 3 awesome days with hiking, relaxing, bathing, exploring the nature and talking with the other guests and volunteers. The trails that the 2 owners created are very cool, the landscape is awesome! Unfortunately we didn't see any mammals, but birds, snakes, many beautiful plants and insects. The area of the hostel is also really nice, clean restrooms and showers, an outdoor kitchen, hammocks, ... And almost everything is eco friendly! We could decide if we wanted to sleep in the wooden hostel house (2 dorms, 1 double room) or somewhere more privat. In the night you hear the djungle and monkeys and can see the stars!
All in all we would have liked to stay longer as this is an awesome place! Probably a good alternative to the national park as it is in the same forrest!
