We enjoyed the walk through this moist, lush biologically rich environment that is well-preserved. Everywhere you look there was something to see and one must go just one to experience this part of our unique planet. We stay at Mar Inn, a locally owned B & B about 5 minutes walk up the ‘hill’ (you will know what I mean when you visit) from downtown Santa Elena. The owner here is Anthony and his is very accommodating to assist you with tours and recommendations. Each morning you will have a fresh breakfast cooked with local ingredients. You must try the coffee.
We highly recommend the tour agent Costa Rica Sun Tours who tailored everything for us.
