Shelter from the Storm was a last minute booking as we left Tortuguero, and what a great last minute choice it was.
We were ready for some R&R, and after a visit to the supermarket, we holed up in Shelter from the Storm for the next 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer.Kate read 2 books in 2 days and Mark and the boys weren't far …
... the boats. They served us fresh fruit and tortilla chips with beans (yes, beans again :). lol
We started off with the main guide for the first part of the voyage and ended up with the helper guide for the second part. The guides switched postions - this time the main guide went on the little kayak like boat.
I really enjoyed my White Water Rafting Adventure. The people that were in the group plus the guides made it a lot of fun.

... as we arrived, a tropical storm hit. Great. Well, we decided hell with the rain, we are here, we are going exploring and hopefully seeing some monkeys (among many other things). So we arrive at the gate after being lied to and swindled by a parking lot attendant, only to have a tour guide not lie to us, but real close to lying. Anyways, we bargain him down in price, then head into the park in the middle of a storm. Ten minutes and several ...
... 90% of the countries money, development looms large. He clearly has a HUGE heart and has secured the future of this beautiful land for years to come. The information below is a brief excerpt from their website, which I strongly encourage you to visit:

With only 20 minutes left in the three and a half hour tour, our guide blessedly spotted a Hawksbill sea turtle (arguably the prettiest of the five marine turtle species). Initially, Vivian missed it, and my heart sank as the turtle dove under the water, but it popped up again just moments later practically under her nose. Vivian was elated, although she admitted to being a little surprised that it was “so small." ...

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
