      Goede lokatie op korte wandelafstand van het stadje muntezuma alsook de zee.
      Prachtige tuin in de jungle met overvloed aan wildlife, groepen brulapen, eekhoorns, salamanders, gekko's,.'
      Vriendelijke gastvrouw, mooie bar. Kamer is wat overprijst. Niet insectenproof.

      De kamers zijn het minpunt. Veel spleten, gekko's tot in de kamer, muggen, een beetje verouderd. Bedden liggen wel goed en douche was goed.
      Al bij al, oké maar te duur.

      The staff at Luz de Mono are super friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a casita and awoke to the monkeys at 5:15am. This is our first visit and we'll definitely return.

      Pool turned my daughter's hair green

      After a long journey to Montezuma via the ferry, my small children were excited to take a swim in the pool. The pool was very warm and cloudy-had I not promised the kids, we would have skipped the swim. After a quick 20-minute swim, my daughter's blonde hair turned completely green. Fortunately, I had special shampoo that minimized the damage, but others should beware (you should also be aware that you will only get two small bars of soap and no shampoo). We were promised towels for the pool, but we never got them. The room was dingy. Both bedside lights were broken (one I unplugged because it scared me). The shower was particularly awful, very small, old, and claustrophobic. We had reserved one night with the anticipation of staying three nights, but we checked out immediately after breakfast (which was surprisingly good). Luz de Mono has an amazing location in terms of access to the beach and town, but recognize that that is all you are paying for . . .

      Wakker geworden door een luid gekrijs. Geen idee wat voor beestje daar moord en brand schreeuwde. Terug ingedut opnieuw gewekt dit keer door de brulapen. Wat een heerlijk geluid! Gauw kleren aan en naar buiten. Ben spot eekhoorns en brulapen en weet het geluid op video vast te leggen. Ze zitten heel hoog in de boom dus een duidelijke foto is …

      ... him is never a good idea – and he didn’t. Good thing. This guy was out for his sandwich. We had to be ever vigilant the whole afternoon as this big, bad boy would pop out of his secret hideaway in the tree and bee line over to our blanket. When Alan went into the water and I stayed behind (to guard lunch, never mind potential thieves), Mr. Iguana came all the way over onto Alan’s blanket and started nosing about. I grabbed Alan’s ...

      We arrived in Monterverde, home to forest which is up in the clouds after a bone rattling shuttle ride from la fortuna. To say the roads are bad here is an understatement, to take a drink from your bottle is to take the risk of possibly losing a tooth!

      The temperature here is lot cooler than other areas so we were grateful of the relief from the heat. From here we took a tour ...

      ... and more commercial side of Costa Rican tourism. This meant that aside from the group transportation and the odd group activity, we felt very little need to spend much time with the other 14 group members, all aged between 19 and 30, and the slightly underwhelming group leader, who acted as a guide throughout. First impressions count for everything, and when I was introduced at the start of the week to a blue haired, tattoo covered creature calling herself 'Rogue', a ...

      We went this morning to a waterfall nearby where you can swim in the pools. When we got there there were a few hippy types there, and a couple asleep on one of the rocks. There is a festival in Uvita this weekend called Envision, so all over town there are youngsters (and not so young) in various states of hippidom, some looking rather spaced out. Most of them sound as if they come from the US or Canada. We climbed up the hill and found a pool all to ourselves and the water was ...
