Amazing place. Great ambience, quaint rooms and great dorm room. Sauna tub for after your tough hike on Chirripo. Friendly owners and staff - willing to go above and beyond to help you. Very concerned about the environment - great focus on reducing, reusing and recycling. Nice gazebo with hammocks - a great place to spend a few hours reading, listening to the wind, birds and chimes. Beautifully constructed out of stone, into the side of a hill - artsy touches, windows made of coloured glass bottles, murals on the wall, broken cups, plates, porcelain used as tiling in bathrooms. Early quiet time - ideal for hikers who need to get up early.

... It did look like some of the pictures I had seen on the interweb, and here I was sat bang in the middle of it. Looking up to the sky there were no swanky seagulls croaking some old noises, nose diving into your food and ******** on your head- Oh no!. I looked into the sky and saw two beautiful red Macaws just gliding by. How stunning to see them out of some dingy old cage and sweeping across the skies- surely that's how things should be?

It was a ...

... dating to the 1870's. The entrance to the museum goes through a butterfly garden ... very interesting! One of the exhibits was of several rocks found originally by banana farmers, then unearthed by archeologists. They were carved somehow into nearly perfect spheres by early Indians using only the tools of their time -- they don't know how they were able to get the perfect spherical shape. ...

... cap on it that had two roosters. Apparently they just love chickens. We ended up seeing the couple again later in the afternoon, but we didn't see or hear the chicken. Maybe he was the guest of honour for lunch?! Dominical was a cool little town. 2 dirt roads and that was about it. They ran parallel to the beach with side roads connecting them. Along the beach road there were all kinds of vendors selling beach wraps and towels to hammocks and chairs (there was one I ...

... and just sat there posing for our pictures! It was amazing! I picked up a mango from across the street and held it up for one of them. It jumped through the trees to this post that was right in front of me. It stared me straight in the eyes and snatched the mango from my hand! I fed a freaking monkey! It was so cool! His little finger touched my hand and it was so cool :) he was so cute! After that, we had lunch (which wasn't ...

... some late lunch at Marlin’s – restaurant right in front of the beach. I had chicken steak with mushroom sauce and hand cut chips – amazing! We then go for a walk on a beach, take some photos on a rock, go swimming, perform the evolution (!!) and watch the beautiful sunset. We agreed to meet our guide and the rest of the group at Ronny’s. Who the hell is Ronny?

Not sure who gave us ...
