The house is situated on 10-11 acres of land. In the back of the house is the valley and the jungle at its finest. Juan is the gardener and he has created trails through which one can hike. He will take you out at 5 a.m. and guide you if you so choose. He knows the land and the animals like the back of his hand. 5 a.m is 'the time' to see animals: armadillos, capuchine monkeys, pizote (coati), wild pigs and others. One cannot guarantee you seeing these animals but when you do it will be the thrill of your life. I know it has been mine. You will also hear Howler monkeys every morning. Juan only speaks Spanish but definitely makes himself understood. Hand gestures are a great thing! If Juan does take you out a tip would be much appreciated. Miriam is his wife and she is the manager of the property. She does speak English and will attend to your needs and answer any questions that might come up.
