    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

    Today, we visited a small development of houses being built into the side of a mountain with a view of the Pacific. While the views were impressive, the steep roads that had to be traversed to reach the houses discouraged most of us. We saw one lot that had two side-by-side houses available for sale at $399,000. From the comments on the bus, no one was impressed.

    ... on the beach. It felt like we were actually flying. Again, words just aren't enough! The only scary part was landing. We had to land in the water and it was super choppy. And it was really difficult to unhook the harness while the parachute is pulling you under the water. But everything turned out fine in the ...

    ... 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.

    ... seeing the others in the group farther out, gained motivation to finish it off. I think the photo of all 3 of us out on the boards was when we first passed the breaks, and, as you can see, we were pretty exhausted before ever catching a wave. But, we all unanimously agree that the slave labouring is well worth it as soon as you catch that first wave. Unfortunately, I don't think any of us caught the first wave we tried, so more labour was ...
