    Like other reviews have stated, it is very remote. That is ok, as I didn't mind that part at all. Yes, the road is crazy, but that was actually pretty fun. (And despite what others say, it's 35 minutes each way to La Cruz) The...More

    Stated in many other reviews here... this place is REMOTE. Way out in the middle of nowhere, only nowhere is beautiful and a great place to be in this case. I'll actually start w/ the cons, which there were a few... but in our case...More

    Booked direct with the resort. Very easy and responsive service. Look up the seasons in CR, rainy season isn't terrible (we've been on separate occasion and still enjoyed it) but most prefer spring/summer months! 😊
