My family of five had the adventure of a life time at Sierpe del Pacifico (our three children range in ages from 8-17). The jungle home is stunning, clean and placed right in the middle of the jungle--toucans, parrots, capuchin and howler monkeys are neighbours.
We loved the solitude and natural splendour of the property. Paradise is simply sitting on the porch, overlooking the jungle and the Sierpe River, watching scarlet macaws fly by.
We took boat trips to Corcovado Park, Cano Island, Violin Island and went horseback riding with Rosita (which was so much fun)!
Caesar was a top notch guide in Corcovado--very informative and he tracked a tapir for us.
Felipe was a friendly, kind and knowledgeable driver on our way to and from San Jose. In fact, everyone we dealt with regarding our vacation was friendly, knowledgable and eager to help.
The experience best suits those who enjoy nature and wilderness, don't mind hot and humid weather and can handle a 5-10 minute up hill climb to the house from the dock.
Make sure to stock up on groceries well before Sierpe as we found the town grocery store lacking.
Being submersed in the true jungle, I learned more on the Oso Peninsula about life than in my 8 years of university.
I've been home for a while; yet, I still miss the howler monkeys and their morning calls.
Thank you Cassidy, it was the most amazing vacation and I'd love to return.
