We visited BdC the first time last May--first week of "green season" when the rates dropped. After reading about the place on this board, I had become obsessed with staying there and planned our whole trip around our stay. I dragged my less than enthusiastic husband to Costa Rica--he refuses to travel to areas that are classified "rainy" "rainforest" "green" etc.--we live where we get a lot of rain and he wants to travel to drier climates--and then he wants it to rain cats and dogs in Akron while we are away. Fortunately, I sent the YouTube video to our friends who became interested in joining us. With pressure from them and because he of course, always wants me happy, my husband caved. (Took 2 years of begging)

We arrived at BdC at lunchtime, had a great lunch in the wonderful dining area, and then walked down to our cabina, Congo. When my husband walked around to the front of that cabina, and looked out at the ocean from that cliff he remarked, "You may have outdone yourself with this place."--and I have to agree. The whole place is wonderful and reading these trip reports makes me want to return.

The grounds are beautiful, the food is great, the wildlife surrounds you, the trails are right there at BdC, the hike with Philip is great--you will be amazed by the ants--and more amazed at monkeys, macaws, agouti...etc.. and the absolute beauty of the place. I loved the romantic cabina, the outdoor shower, waking up to the howler monkeys, sitting on the deck.

I would be comfortable travelling there solo--but so enjoyed being there with my husband and friends--we always missed happy hour because we had trouble pulling ourselves away from our little private happy hour on the deck. We just got wine and a bucket of beer every evening. We would take a hike in the morning, hike again after lunch and then usually sit by the pool in the afternoon and share stories with the other guests. We also enjoyed eating with the other travelers--even though they do offer the option of dining alone.

Maybe it was just because it was different from our other travels--we have never stayed at any of the other properties. This was our first visit to Central America.

When I talk about a return visit, my husband just tells me how lucky we were that it didn't rain. He tells me it wouldn't have been that great if the weather hadn't been so perfect. It was perfect though, and we both loved it---it didn't rain the whole time we were there. (Thank heavens) but we had a week of rain when we returned home to Ohio.

I am hoping to return. For now I jsut relive my experience reading these reports

We went during rainy season too, and we didn't get a single drop of rain. Our best day was seeing all 4 species of monkeys from the front porch of our cabin, as well as scarlet macaws. On top of that, we loved the food, and we had so much in common with the other guests. We all let each other peek in our cabins and would tell each other where we saw what animals. If you like hiking and seeing wildlife, it's really an amazing magical place.
