We were only here for one night. We had a little cabin which had a very big room. The bathroom only had a screen, no window so it couldn't be air conditioned. The location was good for our kayak adventure and they stored our extra luggage while we went to Corcovado National Park in Carate. The breakfast was good. The place is beautifully maintained.

After a decent shower I washed my clothes and chilled in a hammock. Plans for drying went out the window however, when first ...

We made our way along to the hatchery where we first had to check the temperature of a few of the nests, and then check all the nests for any signs of hatchlings. We didn't find any, but there are several nests that are expected to hatch in the next day or two. Before releasing the Olive Ridley hatchlings, ...
