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

... enjoyed the view.
Our taxi arrived on time and we began the long bumpy road back to Port Jimenez. It was like being in a massage chair for an hour and a half. Even though it had rained, the rivers we forded were not any higher than before. It is so dry there, that is all soaked in. It was heavenly to have the air conditioning in the taxi. We met Freddy back at the grocery store and changed vehicles.

... We ventured out into the beautiful clear blue water. It was a sunny clear day with some darker clouds rollin in the distance. Once Brian saw those clouds he said we should turn around. We were out for about and hour and half. I got off my SUP board an went to get my sandals and they were gone. Then Greg said oh did your sandals get stolen and I said yea. He then said just kidding I his them over here. While I was getting in the water he thought ...
... was cheapest place we found for souvenirs such as tourist t-shirts. It was also nice to be somewhere not so touristy, but still with facilities.
We had an ice cream on the promenade, then pool time. After shower we had dinner a bit earlier in a good soda near Wide Mouth and then a couple of bars which were busy with people watching the local football teams play. Good atmosphere, but we went to bed before midnight.
... drink or ate something. I was beginning to get attached to those fresh fruit smoothies so enjoyed one of those, and guess what Barry had! Yep, you know. I downloaded my emails but it was hot and a tad steamy in this open air restaurant so we decided to head back to our luxury. Nice little walk through town.
The night brought on a different energy. ...
We made it out of Costa Rica (barely, but more of that to come after), and made it to Panama City after a lovely 16hr bus ride! Our last days in Costa Rica consisted of exploring the land, exploring the underside of waves as they crashed upon us, again and again and again, catching a few (very few) nice waves, exhausting ourselves swimming and diving, recovering on beaches, swinging from trees into waterfalls, drinking beers, eating food, more ...
