  • Jungle Paradise

    "We spent one week at the Coral Reef house with a party of three adults and two young children. It was perfect for us. Dophi helped us across the river the first day, and from them on we were very comfortable. The rustic house was exactly the simplicity we were looking for. The kids loved playing in the tide pool right in front of the house. We enjoyed watching the monkeys and birds which are very close. We explored the jungle with the kids, and separate, for a more advanced hike. We walked to town easily and explore a wide range of beaches. Thank you for having us!"

  • Rainforest retreat in a fascinating area

    "We loved our stay at La Patita. The house is amazing---open to the lush rainforest, yet kind of cozy and funky-- like living in a treehouse. We could lie in a hammock on the deck and spot sloths, howler monkeys, and toucans. Our hike through the Refuge with Omar was a highlight. He was a great guide--a font of knowledge on all things local. William, the caretaker was also friendly and accommodating. China, (a cook who lives in Manzanillo) came to La Patita to prepare a dinner for us one night. She is a native English speaker like all the older folks in the area, many of whom are descendants of workers who came from Jamaica to build the railroad, and work in the banana plantations. Fascinating history of this place. We loved hanging out and walking on the gorgeous beaches. Just be sure to find out where the rip tides make swimming dangerous. Good food to be had at Cool and Calm Cafe. Thank you, Sita for helping us get in touch with China and with Omar. Meeting local people made our fantastic week even better!"

  • Great Experience!

    "We had a great time at the house! The water is warm and calm and monkeys and sloths can be seen all around. One of our favorite pastimes was sitting on the large porch, sipping delicious local coffee and watching for animals. Chena, the manager, was very helpful from start to finish. She assisted in everything from getting us help loading in luggage and groceries from the other side of the creek when we arrived, making delicious meals, and organizing day trips. One of my favorite trips was guided by Chena's cousin, Tino - we hiked from the house to Punto Mona and learned a lot about the native plants and animals as well as enjoyed a swim in a lagoon with a boatride back! Also great day trip was to the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo - while there were not any jaguars there while were there, there were tons of different animals, from owls, to cats, to sloths, to anteaters. Not only are they doing good work but the guides are super knowledgeable and you can go into the monkey house and interact with them! There is a family that lives on the property - Claudia does an excellent job at any laundry or cleaning needs you have. We had her come in twice for a fresh up - it's affordable and nice to have a clean floor as you will be barefoot most of the time. One thing I would note is that the creek was never dry when we were there. And, the water was often mid-shin or knee high. While this is not really a big deal, for your comfort I would advise bringing one more pair of shoes than you think you should because things do not dry very quickly in the forest. Would definitely stay here again, thank you for sharing, Kathy!"

  • Paradise once again

    "We were privileged to be able to return to Casa de Early Birds for another visit. Once again, we were not disappointed. The owners are wonderful to deal with and the caretakers who live downstairs are so helpful and kind. We enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the ocean, the howler monkeys and looking over the lush vegetation. We walked along the beach nearly every day and enjoyed the local vibe. I can think of no better place to relax and unwind. Loved our experience in every way!"
