Beautiful property and setting right on the Pacific coast. Rooms were very comfortable, although they had no place to sit and write. Our breakfasts were satisfactory but nothing special. Our main complaint, however, was the attitude of the restaurant staff. The only place for wi-fi access was in the main building and there the only place to sit was in the restaurant. The staff was clearly not happy having us there. We came away with the impression they felt it would be a great place to work if it were not for the damn customers. We took it as a reflection of how they were treated by the hotel management.

Drew and Jill each got a private lesson. Both did great. Rented a board for the week. Can surf right in front of the house.
Jill and I enjoyed homemade ice cream at a restaurant in town center. ...

Lots of coast with mile after mile of white sandy beaches, rain forests and mountains. We stopped at Dominical and Uvita, both off the beaten track villages down unmade roads with very little going on but with nearly deserted ...
... walked through the jungle and saw huge numbers of birds and animals - Ghost Bats, Scarlet Macaws, White Faced Monkeys, Boat-billed Herons and a lot more. I managed to get a few pictures but mostly I just got unfocused greenery - we later discovered that Dad had similar pictures too! Back to Cerro Lodge and we picked up our hire car, had some lunch and drove off to meet our next guide who was taking us on a boat tour of the Tarcoles River. He arrived with his two daughters ...
We've made our final drive back toward San Jose, in order to fly out tomorrow. We can't believe the time is almost ended and we look back on our many experiences with happiness and fullness. As we see more and more big homes of Canadians and Estado Unidenses and read more signs and menus in English, we see how lucky we are to have found this sweet little place here called La Encantada. It's a picture perfect, ...
