One of the most beautifully located lodges I've seen in three months in Costa Rica. You're staying the midst of a private reserve, and won't see or hear anyone other than other guests and staff. Monkeys, birds and other wildlife abound. The Pacific views are fantastic, and it is a ten minute walk to either the beach or a spring-fed pool in the forest. The restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is good and a little more interesting than the Costa Rican average. This is a genuine eco-lodge, so the accommodations are simple, but very clean and comfortable. One of my favorite spots to simply be, without the necessity of doing anything other than watch the ocean and listen to the birds.

We split into two groups to deliver the Hands of Mercy baskets which we made. We were able to fill them to the brim with many nonperishable food items. My group went with Fredy, Julia, and Amelia. Amelia and her husband are in charge of Hands of Mercy. Hands of Mercy basically is help to those that are down under their luck. We both visited ...
... the soft sand under the water). The winch rope to pull the boat onto the trailer had snapped and with each wave, the trailer with the boat half on was getting closer to sinking into the sand. Time for David's second good deed of the day and not a second too soon either. The trailer's wheels were nearly sunk to their axle and the surging waves were just short of the jeep when he got there. With a bit of extra muscle, and a ...
... with the stairs and spends much of the time down in John and Maureen's house a little way down from the big house. Finally there is Terror (Terra?), another retriever who is a youthful scamp who is learning from the others but seems to get into minor scrapes such as needing rescuing after falling and getting stuck down an incline. Five very friendly, loveable dogs!
Enough for the moment. If time allows, I'll write a little more about Rio Magnolia and our time here in part ...
I was up early in Drake on Friday to meet 5 others and the boat and guide at 7am to boat an hour to Canos Island for snorkeling. The snorkeling was nice as water was so warm and clear and many fishes but coral was not spectacular, as mentioned. I had access to air tanks for diving but they wanted $100 more for a tank and ...
