The pictures are beautiful – but you can’t capture the beauty and the feel for this wonderful place in a picture. There are many of these paths and they all lead to private rustic lodging/cabins. I posted the link to the resort in case you want to go in and browse around. For starters. We (4 of us) rented the Butterfly room – or Mariposa room. Queen and single downstairs and larger than double upstairs in a loft:
This is the view I woke up to every morning
We ate every meal on the bamboom and thatched roof veranda – excellent food. I mean homemade excellent food…fruits, italian, sea food, delicious desserts, 1/2 liter Pilsner beer for $1.70 on and on
There are other pictures of the veranda and dining room but it is taking a long time to download.
Prices were unbelievable. 4 of us in the butterfly suite eating every meal on site plus desserts and a few drinks – $1200 for 6 days – $600 per couple..Because of the season, we did have a few mosquitos but bug spray WOULD have kept them away. It was suggested that we return in May, June or July – no bugs and nicer temps. The times we spent in our cabana on the beach was beautiful – wonderful breeze off of the pacific, but there was no air in the room – I was comfortable with a fan on me but I have to admit – was a little uncomfortable before we figured that out.
We flew into Quito – the Ecuador capital. Then flew to Purto Lopez on Aero Gal airlines. It was raining when we arrived – they handed us umbrellas as we disembarked and walked across the tarmac to the airport building.
More on the adventure next time!!
