Show reviews from:
The friendliness of all the staff. The terrific location off the beaten track but superb for birds and wildlife.
The rudeness of the visiting American Photographers who seemed to have privileges that others didn't.
One of the best places to easily observe birds of any kind. Amazing variety of birds, very close with high chances of stunning pictures.
Breakfast and dinner could be included in the accommodation price, as the lodge is in the middle of the forest and the first place (Boca Tapada) is quite far away. During our stay guests were mainly Germans and most of the staff was talking to us constantly in German although we do not speak German. The "caiman show" is very disrespectful of the animals as they are treated as in a circus: we didn't expect this from an eco-lodge.
- Perfect for watching birds, frogs, kaimans and other animals - very good meals with local ingredients - nice and helpful staff, speaking next to spanisch also englisch and a little bit german - free jungletour - nice boat tour to a outlying village on the boarder to Nicaragua
- windows of the room are with moskito nets, but we missed a moskitonet above the bed because of the lot of bloodsucking insects - we recommend a 4x4 to get there because of the long gravelroad to get there
Very far away from everything, only worth the Trouble if you are Interested in Bird watching.
The nature, the animals and the birth watching. Best experience in Costa Rica!
The birding was truly outstanding! The lodge is very comfortable, the food is good and the staff are constantly helpful. Agami Heron!
The drive from Pital was about 1.5 hours on a decent gravel road, easily done in a 2wd sedan in January.
Great remote location, nature, boat trips, canoe on the lagoon, bird watching, croc and caiman watching, wildlife in general, relaxed atmosphere, private hammocks
No food options, and for the fact that one has no choice the meals are quite expensive and just OK but not more than that, trapped red eyed frog
