We like this place so much, we have been here 3 different times since our stay for 3 months in Costa Rica. The family who owns it are wonderful and service is amazing. Amenities include a pool and the hotel is just steps away from the beach with good waves for beginning surfers or for a lovely stroll on the beach. Sunsets are breath taking here as well.

I took photos and I thought as the dance progressed and the music continued that Doug was lucky to have avoided getting the broom … oh oh … he got the broom .… oh oh … the music stopped and Doug was the Turkey. They gave him ...
... to be the first one to board the gondola and sit at the front of it for better picture opportunities! Instead, Michel and I were placed in the fourth row, the one before the last! :-(
While being seated in this gondola high above the treetops, the tram glided slowly but surely through a living backdrop of giant trees, hanging ...
And we were well spread out working this morning. 5 of us in the homes working with the kids, 2 sickies, 3 hanging surveillance cameras, and the rest of us painting.
Another amazing Tico (traditional Costa Rican) meal...and now a brief rest before an afternoon playing with the kiddos.
