Where I stayed
We arrived at Suital Lodge at around 11am. We are the only guests here. Some very funky individual wood cabins share a space in a very large rainforest area which goes down to the Golfo Dulce coast. The cabin is lovely and has nice big and powerful ceiling fan and great hot water bathroom. From our veranda, we can watch toucans and hummingbirds and there is a sloth sitting in the top of a nearby tree!
After getting settled in we headed on down one of the trails to the beach. The site here is covered with numerous trails which we will explore during our stay. The trail took us through lovely rainforest down to a real wild feeling stretch of coast. It didn’t take us long to get out into the water which was lovely and warm. It started raining really heavily as we enjoyed the water and the views. The coast is covered in coconut palms and down the beach a bit a small river emptied into the sea. We were both quite hungry as we ate an early breakfast. Thankfully the beach was covered in coconuts so I found a likely candidate and smashed it open with a rock. The flesh was succulent and the juice refreshing. After a while some chickens and ducks came out onto the beach
We walked back up through the rainforest to our cabin around 4:30 through a very heavy downpour, both still in our swimming gear. I rinsed off the salt and sand in the river on the way back. Catherine got a fright when we she stepped over a big brown snake which slithered off into the jungle! Dinner was great, it seems the resident chap Daniel who cooks is very capable. The rain carried on all night long and didn’t stop until 10am the next morning!
