Fodor's Review

Though still within sight of the Puerto Viejo–Manzanillo road, this place delivers a get-away-from-it-all nature experience, within the confines of the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, at a fraction of the cost of other Costa Rican eco-lodges. It's so cool and shady here that the ceiling fans were never installed, as no one ever needed them. Cozy wood cabins are simply furnished with two beds and mosquito netting and have colorful spreads and drapes. The houses here can be rented by the week or month. Personal touches, such as breakfast (included in the rates of the bungalows, but not the kitchen-equipped houses) brought to the porch of your cabin, are standard. The bungalows are joined by a kitchen and are ideal for renting by a group or family.
