Overall, this was a wonderful, unforgettable trip! The house is beautiful and well-maintained, but could use a little upkeep (some holes in the screens to let bigs in :)). Carlos is so nice, and was there if we needed anything. If you have never heard a Howler Monkey, beware! They sound terrifying at 5 am :). You get used to it though, and it is part of the authentic Costa Rica experience (plus it got us up to watch the sunrise everyday). The highlight of our stay, besides the beauty of Costa Rica and the people, was definitely the chef, Pablo. His dishes were amazing! He is a respectable and talented young man. Fresh juices, fresh fish, guacamole, and his pizza was to die for! We had a vegetarian with us, and he made sure to tailor the dishes to her needs. Keep in mind you will need to go shopping and provide the food you discuss with Pablo. We weren’t aware of this, and assumed we would be provided a bill for the food at the end of the trip, so there was a little confusion, but we ended up having a great time shopping at the local grocery store. You must try the ice cream! There is so much to do in the area. One week was not long enough! I would suggest the Chocolate Tour, hike to King Louie waterfall (however it drys up in mid-February), and the tree climb for sure! We rented a car and were so happy we did. We explored different beaches, restaurants and had a blast on our own schedule. The roads are full of potholes, so a 4- wheel drive car is definitely recommended (and full coverage insurance, just in case). You can get by without knowing Spanish, but I would highly recommend touching up on basics. Pablo did not speak English, but we were able to communicate with him with our Spanish. We enjoyed the resident dog, Gaia. He was so sweet! My only complaint was that the property manager (not Carlos) was hard to communicate with. There was a language barrier, which was frustrating at first, but we were able to get through itamd still enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Franck for opening your home up to us. Pura Vida!
