    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

    We came home and we took a shower and I made a drink for us while sitting on the deck to watch the sunset to start coming down. We had supper outside to finish watching the sunset and we just ...

    ... abandoned on the beach. It's a good thing that Nadia and Amy have two Spanish degrees between them, as Amy had understood that Chris was so at one with nature that he considered a turtle to be his mother. Luckily Hannah was around to set things straight; Chris's mother was not a turtle, had at no point travelled by turtle, and was in fact not his actual mother.

    After a delicious breakfast of banana pancakes, we ventured into the national park; ...

    ... Canadian style ass whoopings at billiards to some locals.

    The second morning in Dominical saw us arising at a lovely 7am in our spacious 2-person hut for no real reason. We followed this up by grabbing some grub, and then heading out to the surf shop to grab our boards to get some practice in before the waves became too big for us (in hindsight, they were all always too big for us). So we grabbed our boards and headed to the
    beach. ...

    ... the way back to our cabins that yields many photo ops. We are told the population of butterflies is currently down, but they are working on rejuvenating it coming into the rainy season.

    I know I speak for the group when I say that time is already moving at an unbelievably quick pace. You blink an eye and half the day is seems to disappear. Before we know it, it’s time to meet for the much anticipated zip-line tour. We gather up at the expedition hut and ...

    ... get over it (and myself) in time for the 20km hike into the Corcovado National Park.

    So enough of my toes, as you can imagine, I was very happy to escape Playa Hermosa. The bus picked us up early and Jan practiced his Spanglish for another couple of hours. We had to stop and race around from one ATM to another to stock up on Colones and US$ as the further south you go the fewer the banks etc and the less it ...
