Included Tipico Breakfast 630am-8am
Nestled at the back of the large ocean front lot, these cabinas have amazing views of the lush rainforest and sit far enough back from the road where you don’t hear the noise, only the monkeys in the trees and the ocean out front.

Our wildlife observation deck is located in the center of the property, allowing you to have sweeping 360 degree views of the whole jungle and ocean. Up on the wildlife observation deck, you can relax with a book, be in an optimal place for nature photography, and much more.

At night, this deck is used for epic star gazing opportunities. The stunning rainforest gardens are both practical and beautiful.

The gardens are used for a variety of reasons. Birdwatching, making teas, farming fruits, enjoying exotic flowers…and so on. With so many options for growing a wide variety of plants here in the topics, we have planted as many beautiful trees, plants, and bushes as possible. Check them out while you’re here, and ask us about them. A lot of them are medicinal and regularly used in the lodge kitchen.
