I was travelling with my roommate and we were stranded after we took the ferry crossing the Nicoya gulf.
Unfortunately it was the last boat so there were no more busses on the other side which means we were stranded. Luckily enough for us the owner of the hotel picked us up after we decided to hitchhike and he took us all the way to his hotel without charging anything extra.
Since we are students on a limited budget we got a cabana-cabin all for ourselves at a discounted price. The place is a bit far but we could use the bikes for free to peddle ourselves all the way to Montezuma. The starry night in Cabuya is absolutely amazing - something I hadn't seen in over a decade.
Yes there are lots of ants and mosquitoes (which drive me crazy) but it's the jungle so that is to be expected.
Owner was really friendly and helpful. Even though we didn't have any plans to stay there we are happy that we did. Good place to go for a weekend!
