"My buddy and I were seeking out an eco-adventure experience, something with a personal touch vs. something overly touristic, and we discovered just this at La Ceiba Eco B&B. The hosts are wonderful people, and really went out of their way to show us an amazing time with many personal touches that made the adventure all the more memorable. The landscape where we were situated is midway up a deep valley in the jungle, with a view spanning 270 degrees. The sounds of the jungle, with waves of insect ambient sounds, bird songs, howler moneys, etc. was simply mezmerizing and you really felt you were now 'off the beaten track'. Our wooden cabins, made mostly of teak, were surprisingly spacious, super clean, had numerous fans (making for comfortable sleep), a full sized fridge and had a really nice shower. The cabin was a stone's throw away from the communal kitchen area, where meals were made for us and we could use their facilities when we wished to store our own foods/ make our own meals. FOOD was 15/10. This was perhaps the biggest surprise....the food was fresh, high quality, well presented and prepared perfectly. Complementing the main courses, was freshly squeezed juices, home made deserts. Yummmm! Ok...the biggest and best part of the whole experience was the epic hike we took through the jungle to the water fall. Along this trip, our guides informed us of interesting this's & that's about the trees, bushes, insects, animals, etc, providing a surprising educational aspect to the tour. Both guides were native to the area, so knew the jungle inside-out, which made us feel like were in good hands, which we certainly were. Once we arrived at the waterfall, we jumped in and the guide took us under the waterfall....amazing. Lunch was provided (sandwiches never tasted so good!). We relaxed, swam, took lots of photos for a good hour, then wandered our way back up the valley toward our cabin. Pheromones kicked in and we all flew up the valley in half-time; we all felt so rejuvenated! After a shower, we went for dinner and it was over-the-top delicious, as per usual. That night, I slept like a baby, smiling the whole time. I haven;t felt so whole and complete, for as long as I can remember. I was in Costa Rica for 5 weeks, and this was by far a stand out experience, which I'd highly recommend for people wanting a hands-on memorable experience! Thank you to everyone at La Ceiba Eco B&B for an amazing experience!"
