  • Highly recommended

    "My girlfriend and I stayed in the cabina for a week and it was incredible. Cassidy and Rayna made planning the trip a breeze, and Guillermo was very helpful when we got there and always responsive whenever we needed a ride into town. He was ready with the boat in Sierpe when we arrived, loaded our luggage into the boat, took us to SDP (10-15 minute ride), and then walked us up to the cabina and pointed out a few things, including the group of howler monkeys sleeping in the trees, during our walk up. The 95-99 degree heat was a little intimidating at first, but the ceiling fans in the cabina make it much better and at night it would cool off to upper 70s which made it very comfortable to sleep in. The walk from the pier to the cabina is uphill and can seem somewhat steep in parts, but makes it all the more worth it as you progress from the mangroves and forest floor to the canopy, where you're cabina is sitting perched overlooking the surrounding rainforest. Plus, you get used to that walk very quickly during your stay and we had some of our best wildlife viewing while walking on this trail. There are also numerous trails to hike throughout the property. I personally recommend the mangrove trail, which takes you through the garden where you can find some fresh fruit and then it proceeds along the river. We stocked up on some fresh limes and enjoyed them with our imperial beers. We just about ran out of batteries for our camera and took over 300 pictures during our first couple of days, which shows how much you can see while staying at SDP. One of our favorite moments was hanging out on the porch in the rocking chairs and seeing a three-toed sloth lounging high up in a tree during sunset just 100 feet away from our porch. We also took the kayaks out on the tributary near the pier and I tried fly fishing for a bit, but had no luck. My favorite activity was the night hike with Cesar. He is very knowledgeable and took us out on his farm and pointed out some amazing wildlife. It is a must for all adventure seekers! We also recommend getting out to Isla del Caño for a day, whether you snorkel or go fishing. They picked us up and dropped us off right at the SDP pier for all of these trips, which was very convenient. The town of Sierpe is full of friendly locals as well as a few shops and restaurants. If you love wildlife, hiking, camping, being remote, exploring, etc., this is the place to be. We will be returning here again in the future. Thanks again, Cassidy!"

  • The perfect place!

    "I can't say enough great things about the house. The location is awesome and the view is beautiful. The house is very spacious, luxurious and has all the amenities. Even the drive to get there is adventurous. We loved being in the mountains where the air is pure and you're away from all the congestion of the major tourist cities like Manual Antonio. After spending most all of our days on adventures it was great to come back to the quiet house in the mountains at the end of the day and relax by the pool. It's only a short drive to some of the best restaurants in Manual Antonio (Emilio's and Cafe Melagro were our favorites). The caretaker Bert was great for recommendations of places and helping us find the house for the first time. A 4x4 vehicle is a must especially in the summer/rainy season as the house is in the mountains. We loved it and will absolutely be returning here for all of our future trips to Costa Rica!"

  • Best all around deal in Costa Rica!!

    "We have been staying at Gumbo Limbo Tropical for nine years. It is truly one of the gems of Costa Rica. The accommodations are warm and comfortable with every thing provided for your stay. Forget the hotels in San Jose, this place is waiting for you! Santo Domingo is a great little Tico town. We always feel safe walking the streets, even late at night. Ann and Adrian Kreupeling are such good hosts. They have lived in Costa Rica for 20 years and they really have things figured out on how to help you have the best Tico experience possible."
