    Donna and Daryl, the owners of SFTS are 2 folks who know what they are doing. They have created a place of peace and relaxation that cannot be described in words, it needs to be experienced in person. My wife and I stayed the week of July 24th and we were sorry to leave. SFTS is perfectly situated between Uvita and Dominical. There are plenty of activities to do in the surrounding area. All you need to do is ask Donna or Daryl and they will make all the arrangements for you. We did the Zip Line tour at Hacienda Baru, the horse back tour at Don Lula to a spectacular waterfall and ate great food at several local restaurants including Exotica (not to be missed). You will need a 4X4 and a spirit of adventure, but it is well worth the effort. You will see some of the most amazing beaches (sometimes we were the only people on them). Please read all the rest of the reviews, they are all true (ignore the one that had some complaint about rules, etc. it is not the case). I cannot add anymore to what has already been said...except that my wife and I will back as soon as feasible. Thanks Donna and Daryl for making this last week one to remember forever. Rob and Nina Hart, Naples, Florida

    After resting, eating, cooling off and cleaning up we decided to take the 4:00 pm bus to Dominical and hear the G String Cowboys again. Traveler's rest has the times for the bus and other useful information in a notebook for their guests. The bus stop is past the BM in town but before the bridge toward the National Park.

    ... say that I did everything and it was an absolutely brilliant day. And how do you finish a brilliant day you ask??? Cocktails in coconuts watching the sunset of course!!!! A quick walk up the steep hill near our house and we are at Ronnie's Restaurant, with views overlooking the ocean towards Quepos. The sunset wasn't amazing but the piña colada served in a coconut sure was!!!! A fantastic way to end an amazing weekend with new friends!!! (It's just a pity we have school ...

    ... best way to see and there were cliffs on the side, tons of semis oncoming traffic and cars passing in our lane, this made us all very uncomfortable. At one point we came out of a tunnel and the fog was so dense that the car in front of us just stopped in the middle of the road. After some squeezing breaks and a quick turn into the other lane in white out fog we managed to make it back to our hotel in one place.

    The following day we caught a small twin propeller plane and ...

    ... was an experience that I'm sure they will never forget. Even Sam went over the top!

    While we were here we seriously considered moving to Costa Rica for the remainder of our time away from the UK. The comparison between where we are living in Belize and Costa Rica is vast. Everywhere you look it seems to be green and beautiful. It's no wonder it's called the Rich Coast! Still, whatever the case we had to go back ...

    ... something they add to the water…?

    Bellies filled, we load into the bus and head out to for our educational kayak trip through the mangroves. Carlos drives us a mile or so down the road a delivers us as close to the river mouth we are meeting our guides at as he can. Turned out that was a good distance from where we actually needed to end up. Sara tells us there used to be an "illegal" village down this very road, which was bulldozed by ...
