    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.

    On the Road Again

    ... 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.

    Our next ...

    More Manuel Antonio

    ... almost the entire coast. It was breathtaking!! We also saw more monkeys, iguanas, and a couple raccoons. By the way, what Casey and I thought to be a rare Costa Rican animal that we saw on the last trip was actually just a guinea pig. They look so different here! And don't worry, the camera didn't die this time so I got some pretty cool ...

    Riches, rags, repacking, rain forests, raccoons

    ... the next one not going for another 7 months, and we had the obligatory unfamiliar-currency-scenario when Emma frantically tried to buy us tickets in time. "It's 10,000 dollars each..." she alarmingly called across the pavement as I pre-emptively loaded our bags on board..."it seems quite a lot...". After establishing 10,000 Costa Rican Colons is about 19 dollars, and they accept US currency everywhere here anyway, we just made it. Since our arrival 3 hours ...

    Sloths and Scuba

    ... naked eye way up in the trees if you knew just where to look, but the guide also had a telescope that allowed you to feel like you were right there next to them. I uploaded a video of one of the sloths seen through the scope to this post, and you can see my adorable sloth friend in the photo at right. We also saw a troop of howler monkeys jumping from tree to tree right above us. We stopped and watched them for a long while. There were so many baby howler monkeys! ...

    And the Costa Rican Adventure continues...

    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 ...
