This small lodge is indeed in a tranquil setting in Jacintoville, about 9 mi (15 km) north of Punta Gorda, yet with easy access to the Southern Highway. Four rooms have air-conditioning, flatscreen TVs, Wi-Fi, and even iPod docks. Two thatch casitas have ceiling fans only. Meals (guests only) are served in a thatched dining room on the second floor, above the guest rooms. More than 200 species of birds can be seen on the lodge's 20 acres. A short walk takes you to Jacinto
Creek, where there's excellent swimming in a natural swimming hole.
