We came here on a bit of a whim--we're not serious birdwatchers, which is the target audience, and we have two kids under 4--but wound up loving it. We stayed in their more budget-mnded accommodations, which are perfectly fine and very clean, but there are some more upscale-looking cabanas available as well. The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful, even by Costa Rican standards, and really made our family feel welcome. The restaurant is perhaps a little expensive for lunch (about typical for dinner), but the food is good and the buffet approach works well for a quick bite before heading back out. The grounds are lovely and attract many birds from the surrounding Parque Nacional De Los Quetzales. The lodge has its own private reserve with hiking trails through the forest. You can see an amazing variety of birds without ever leaving the property. If you have any interest in birds at all, this is a great, relaxing place to visit.

We arrived Savegre Lodge about 2 pm yesterday, after a 4-hour drive from Selva Verde..

Vandaag hebben wij de hele dag ruzie met de GPS, al bij het wegrijden stuurt hij ons naar San Jose in plaats van Dominical. Maar wij zijn alert, hebben de kaart bestudeerd en meteen grijpen wij in. Toch de andere kant uit en naar 5 kilometer is een bord dat ons gelijk geeft. Lekker puh. Het is een lange toch, eerst een hele mooie weg langs de kust …
Our house sat on the crest of the hill looking down over the Manuel Antonio coastline so walking downhill to the beach didn't seem too bad of an idea. The road curved it's way down the hill and for the second half of the 3km walk we were tantalisingly close to the beach except for the private properties in between. Finally, we came across a beach access that was almost at the most southern end of the beach, which also happened to be ...
... to the beach. There are hiking through the jungle down to the beach, about a ten minute walk through the rain forest! It was absolutely beautiful, and the perfect day weather wise. Jeff spotted a group of 3 white faced monkeys in the forest off of the trail, they looked the same as the one in my dream! They were only about 20 ft from us and were swinging around on the trees. They were so cute! We got some good pics. Then we finally ...
We stayed two nights in Quepos, which is a small town about 20 mins from the coast and Manuel Antonio national park. Quepos doesn't really have any attraction itself but is a useful place to stay rather than pay more expensive prices to stay in any accommodation on the road into the national park. We got up early in the morning (mainly because we were still slightly on panama time, but also because the fan in the room was useless so ...
