"After 8 hours drive, we arrived to Cahuita and Casa Magdalena, where Doris came to welcome us. The Place was just as advertised, - open unique architecture, rustic charm! Doris showed us around, informed us about the neighbour-hood, shops and foodstore down the street and took off with friendly: good-bye I will see you tomorrow....and we did! A quick stop almost every day, answering questions, if we had any! The internet - TV worked fine, we even had a phone to reach Doris or call a cab etc. Really good service!
Rain or sun, we were out every day canoeing on a quiet river in the middle of a jungle - watching for animals like parrots, slots, racoons, iguanas - listning and seeing howler-monkeys etc. In the little willage, we would eat in afro- caribbean restaurants with reggae and calypso musik. People were always so friendly and the food was really good!!!
Coming back to the house, the Children (8-12) would plunge into the inviting pool, while we had caribbean strong coffee.... Sitting on the big porch, we would see the neigh-bour´s little white hen-sneeking through the hedge and lay down in the grass sunbathing!
One day three well-kept dogs passed by. One of them stopped, very carefully-looking at us
(or was it the food?!) He was handsome , humbled middlesized (brown/white). The children talked quietly to him and he came carefully close enough to get a snack or two..... then he cought up with the other two, waiting down the path, vaggig his white tail.
We felt "lucky" for his visit! The week went fast and we want to thank you Doris for your hospitality and beeing in touch! We recommend this place and one day, we hope to be back to Casa Magdalena and to you Doris and maybe Lucky!!!!(yes, we named him Lucky)"
