    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.

    ... 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 ...

    ... then we went out to explore the town. La Fortuna has basically two main streets, and like 4 minor cross streets. We scoped out places for drinks later and asked tourist info booths to figure out our activities for the following two days. What we found was that everything we wanted to do was farther apart than we would like away and we would spend a fortune on cabs to see it all. Or we could spend a ton on guided tours, neither seemed of particular interest so we decided to talk ...

    ... sunning on the muddy shores. The bridge crossing the river was a fine place to see the crocs.

    The tiny villages along the seacoast were a mixture of old towns to quaint villages to smart resorts. We stopped at a gorgeous bay to stretch and enjoy the view. Note how the mountains behind the bay stop the clouds. They absorb water here, then drop it after crossing the mountains for afternoon rain ...

    ... too much for us, especially when you throw the rank rip tides in as well. Also, we were supposed to head up to a waterfall for some swimming & exploring. Unfortunately, that didn't happen for various reasons, so we just kind of kicked back and relaxed for a while. Around 2, we again headed back to the beach to get another session in.

    This final session of the day Cedric & Don both shredded it pretty good! Boss was getting up every try ...

    ... bring your Epipens. Hospitals are located almost exclusively in the cities and if you’re not prepared, this trip could easily be your last.

    The Teak trail eventually spits us out back near the beach and the guys gather up a few fresh coconuts for our enjoyment later in the evening. Not far from there Sara brings us by the sea turtle rescue area. The folks here at Hacienda Baru have created a makeshift beach on the property, to which turtle eggs are moved ...
