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.

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 …
Sooo, words cannot adequately explain the beauty of parasailing. The view is breathtaking. I could see the entire coast and tons of small islands in the ocean. The water was this beautiful teal color that was slightly darker than the sky. We were so high up that we could barely see the people, they were ...
Today was a lazy day. We put on our bathing suits and went aft to the pool, laid in the sun for a little bit, did water aerobics in the salt water pool all by myself, and after showering we took a short nap. We were still in port so took a tender over to Quepos, a sleepy little town with not much to see or do. We found an internet cafe at which wifi was free if be ...
... beach and then free time. I walked to the end of the main beach and had lunch at one of the beachside restaurants - Balu Surf School. Sand floor, concrete tables and seats, rather rustic under the shelter of the palm trees from the sun. Anyway one chocolate milkshake was not enough so I had two ...
