Our family of 5 stayed here for 5 nights in March 2011 and totally enjoyed it! The location is beautiful, the food was amazing (Chef Bryce) and the service was great (Sandra!). The beautiful beach was all ours. We couldn't believe the value for the incredible experience.

... priorities in coming to the South Pacific region. We did not reach Ojochal – despite its appearance on the itinerary – because our group leader (Christopher Howard) had unilaterally removed this destination from the itinerary.

... down, we set off for Dominical Beach. I had been told that it resembled Manuel Antonio 20 years ago, way less commercial and just as beautiful. It's a sleepy little beach town with surf shops, great food and a variety of both very chilled out locals, a gringo or two and off-the-beaten-track tourists. We booked into a gorgeous hotel situated just out of town on the river with a huge swimming pool ...
... Falls. Everyone says it's one of the highlights of their time here. We had to drive partway up to San Isidro, and then down into the valley where we meet our horses. Yep, horses. I am not a horse girl. Until I met Clayton, I was totally scared of them! I haven't ridden but 3 horses in my life and for very short rides, thank you.
I like going to the fair or the Royal Red (now in Brandon) but as for sitting on them, nada.
Our horses were called Pico and ...
