We (2 couples) have just returned to wet UK after 15 days touring in fabulous Costa Rica - the highlight was undoubtedly a 4 night stay in Copa de Arbol. From leaving Sierpe Dock with Louis on fast water transport amidst the floating water hyacinths, and caimans on mangroves, to the great snorkeling off Cano island, the experience was top notch - Hawksbill turtle and Rays were seen. The whole resort was a delight with plenty of flora and fauna to be found within short walking distances, and the sunsets - wow !
The owners Jay and Mike, and their partners, went out of their way to encourage a relaxed atmosphere offering activities and advice, both on and off the water. Reception were very helpful and restaurant staff remembered our first names by day 1.
The day trip to Corcovada with guide Jose was memorable because of his encyclopaedic knowledge, the incomparable Pacific coastal scenery and our ability to trail in 37c heat!
We did have some brief power-cuts at the resort (? Howler monkeys shorting the power cables) which were quickly restored and I thought there could be more use of Eco features such as PV solar and thermal panels.
