The entire complex is located on the top of a mountian ridge some thirteen hundred above the blue Pacific below. Every night has a beautiful sunset which should be enjoyed while sipping a glass of wine or enjoying a sumptious meal. The rooms are spacious and comfortable the service is second to none. If there are any down sides the first is a lack of water pressure in the shower and changing temperature very minor. Second if you are not a fan of heights the driveway could be a challange but they you would not have the spectacular vistas from every room. This is close to the national park for jungle tours and the beach. A positive thumbs up.

Injuries: Upset knee again from too much horse riding : )
Illnesses: Ringworm - very itchy
Food: Dosa; fermented rice and beans, ground together (on the bicycle grinder) and fried like a pancake.

Later after lunch, we went on a boat on the Tarcoles River which is in a National Park. On that boat we saw blue herons, ibis, rosietta spoonbills, vultures, and lots more birds. This area has over 300 species of birds and is a bird ...
... not experience 10 years ago. Hotels and restaurants are no longer a good deal, and the sales taxes are 13% on food, beverage and lodging. The departure tax at the airport is now $29 per person. I am just wondering how long this country can increase its costs on the visitor until the public will find a new destination, like Panama, which is challenging Costa Rica tourism. And yes, I did lose my wallet. But when visiting foreign countries, I use a ...
... and mouth of the river where it joined the Pacific ocean. A more animal/bird filled first day we couldn't have asked for and the three of us all had a wonderful time! On the way to dinner that night in the lodge's restaurant, mum and I discovered a large winged insect about my palm's width from wing tip to wing tip, quite dead and being eaten by ants. We couldn't identify what it was as our knowledge of bugs is limited to say the least! Dinner was a choice of chicken, ...
