      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. http://shelterfromthestormvillas.com Rob and Nina Hart, Naples, Florida

      Worst travel day

      ... it was. The gentlemans name was Francois his wife's name was Sharon. After conversing with them and talking hockey because they were from Canada we went to our room to shower. After showering we went down the street to a place called San Clemente. It had a surf vibe with broken surfboards and a bus parked up to the restaurant for extra seating. Greg got the catch of the day which was MahiMahi and I got the chicken nachos. After eating we went back to the room and settled for the ...

      ... hostel is a smoothie bar with a tent and some tables beside it. I heard some music coming from the tent and wandered over. It just happened to have a couple of local guys - one playing the bongos, one the base and one acoustic guitar and singing/playing some beautiful songs. Great atmosphere. Great music. Freshly made nacho chips and salsa being passed around. I'm in love with this night and the gift of live music. It is a night made for Sandra and Lyle Neis. ...

      ... expensive equipment into the water makes shooting photos a risk, but one worth taking. The group is enjoying the boats more than the tour itself and the opportunity for some cool shots are plentiful.

      After a couple hours on the water we are back to the landing and greeted with a mini-buffet of fresh fruits and pipa fria (young coconuts opened for the juice). After a good workout, the feast is welcomed by an eager bunch. The fruit is so ...

      ... walked straight past. like the baby caiman, a three-toed sloth with a baby, another snake and more birds. The only down side to the whole evening was that we'd managed to stop over the leaf-cutter ant highways. It took a while to realise that we were being attacked by the soldiers. At first we noticed some minor stinging then on checking shoes the soldiers we crawling over them and up our trouser legs. I ...

      ... where from.

      Alice and Bob used to be on the 'road committee' in their hillside neighbourhood. Down here, there are whole communities on mountainsides that are never seen from the highway. Sometimes there are quite gruelling vertical bumpy roads that are mostly accessible by 4 wheel drive. The residents on that road form road committees and try to get everyone to chip in for paving. It's not done by the state or country unless it's a main highway. Even the ...
