We stayed for 6 nights during New Years '14 and loved it. The staff was wonderful, Rudy, Edgar and all the young guys did everything to make us at home. The food was nice good considering the remote location. The bed was also great, a real mattress, not something you find in many remote lodges. Yaro and Rafeal were so helpful in arranging travel from Granada. The birds are fantastic (we saw almost 100 species) and watching the local Nicaraguans travel on the beautiful Rio San Juan in dug out canoes is something I will remember for the rest of my life. I loved sitting in the hammocks and watching the river flow past.
This is a rustic jungle lodge, its not the Four Seasons, if you are not up for real travel in a remote part of a third world country it may not be for you. Traveling here requires doing your homework and being prepared- its a full day trip from almost anywhere except San Carlos, so stay longer than you think you need. Getting to El Castillo takes an hour and the very affordable public boats (you will never have so much fun for .80 cents) only run a few times a day. I think three nights is a minimum stay. Otherwise you are just spending your time getting here and getting away.
