We decided to visit Costa Rica and found this little gem of a place. The room was inviting and cozy The owner was wonderful , who was kind and helpful. He had wonderful knowledge of the area and sent us to some waterfalls and beaches. He even ran some of the other guest up town when he had time to do so. The restaurant under the bungalows had the best food you have ever tasted. Everything was homemade fresh and authentic. They also have great homemade pizza. They are within walking distance of a beautiful beach. If you are into surfing they have some great waves. We found some sand dollars and even a starfish that I released. You can hear the monkeys in the distance. We also saw some beautiful birds. He has bikes you can use to ride to town or down to the beach. We loved the markets that you could get to easily enough by bike or walking.
