                                      Fantastic way to unplug!

                                      5 of 5
                                      We stayed for five nights (my husband, three daughters 9, 10, 12 and me). It is off the grid, which is what we were looking for! We stayed in Costa Rica a total of 11 nights, which included a few nights in Uvita and a few in the cloud forest (San Gerardo). I would say 4-5 at Finca Manglar was a good amount of time. I didn't let anyone bring electronics and we packed very light so we could be adventuresome and we were! We didn't need electronics at all! During our stay we took a mangrove tour where we saw a lot of wild life, visited the private beach/tubing and took the capitains fishing tour. We loved it all. Our favorite ended up being the fishing trip because we were lucky enough to have seen whales playing and breaching within 20 feet of us for 30-45 minutes. Truth be told, if that had not happened on that boat trip, I would have been disappointed with that trip. We spent $600 (not including tip) for the family, and the capitain and crew were not particularly helpful with the fishing etc. My daughter did catch our dinner, but, I had to help my kids the whole time and couldn't really fish myself. The whales, however, made the trip worth every cent. We also took a day to drive to Bahia Drake and did a 2.2k zip line. It was rainy season (Aug), so, we got trapped on the other side of the river for 24 hours. That was a little scary, but, just the kind of adventure we were looking for and Lia was very responsive and helpful! We stayed the night there and were able to get back the next day. The only thing I really regret not doing was a full day visit into Corcovado National Park. It was hard to get to from the farm, but, I would figure out a way to add a day or so to your trip and go there and stay for 2 days. Based on everything I heard from our local guides, it is fantastic. We planned to go there and then spent a day stuck on the other side of a river, so, didn't work out! Couple of things to know. Plan your meals! Bring TONS of ice. We brought an ice chest and I was grateful to have it! We had Dolly prepare our evening meal which was a lifesaver! There is a small solar refrigerator, but, the ice and ice chest kept things much colder. Or, if you plan to stay long and prepare your own meals, plan for non-perishable food items and you'll be fine! Also, bring plenty of cash for tours. Driving back to town for cash and ice is a long trip and you won't want to leave the farm for that purpose, if you can avoid it. A+ to Lia, Dolly/Evolito and Luis!

                                      The house is gorgeous. Beautiful property. A little isolated from town but we expected that. Shani the caretaker was so helpful the entire stay. Would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back again
