POOL & EASY BEACH ACCESS
“Best vacation ever! Who would have thought a rainforest lodge could be so luxurious, educational and fun?! Our family of four loved all the hikes, had a blast on the excursions the front desk organized for us and couldn’t get enough of the delicious food. Admittedly, we spent one day relaxing by the pool and getting to meet the other families. It changed our lives, and taught all of us about sustainability (we recycle and avoid waste a lot more now). First class all the way! We can’t wait to return!”
