It might come as a surprise to find such attractive and comfortable rooms, with nice appointments and high ceilings, in so remote a place, but the lack of pretense and laid-back luxury fits right into the surroundings on the east side of the reserve. The lodge has a variety of meal options; most guests opt for taking all meals here, since there are few other restaurants in town. Two- and three-day packages are available for anglers and non-anglers alike. Horseback riding can be arranged, and miniature golf, croquet, and badminton are a few of the on-site diversions. If you want to catch a glimpse of monkeys, request a far-end room facing the forest.
