We (three guys & two girls) traveled from Wisconsin for a wedding and were overwhelmed by the kindness of the locals and the perfection of Casa Barba Roja. We enjoyed the company of several lizards, including Iggy and Lizzy (the boys fed Lizzy a beetle and excitement ensued); we didn't know iguanas could climb trees! We also met a sloth at the house, but he was shy. The pool was a huge highlight in our downtime, with the incredible view and perfect temperature. Josue and Roxana were wonderful and on hand whenever needed. The house is in walking distance of several restaurants/bars and a happy downhill hike to the beach. Cabs are easy to catch, and incredibly quick if you call them. The grocery store delivers! Don't look any further; just rent this house.
