... for the evening. Although it’s mid to late afternoon when we arrive, it seems as if its dusk or evening. The clouds, coupled with the cover of the forest, create a dark, damp environment. Deep in the forest, Olman tells us, as little as 4% of the sun’s rays will actually reach the ground. It’s no wonder so many mosses and fungi litter the forest ground and snakes and frogs run rampant.

... him the rest of the way to the beach to have a snooze with Dago's sister who was meeting us later with pineapple and burritos. So Aiden, Jim and myself took the slow walk and saw three and two toed sloths - one with a baby, who was not cooperating for the camera.
We saw several types of Iguanas and lizards - ask Aiden the difference between the two and he'll talk your ear off! We saw a cool Golden ...
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, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMonterey Del Mar Hotel Esterillos Este
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.
