We stayed in Estrella, house of the Stars for a month. We did not have a car and had no trouble getting to wherever we wanted to go for whatever we wanted to procure. Los Cedros is midway between Montezuma and Cabuya, about 2 miles in each direction. The bus runs hourly throughout the day. You are close enough, and yet far enough away. Perfect!!
To paint a bit of a picture for you: The sun sets, scents of ylang-ylang wafts, the howler monkeys roar, the coatis and agoutis wander through the exotic garden. You can dine by candlelight on the exquisite veranda and not hear anything but the sounds of the creatures and the breezes through the tall trees surrounding the lush garden...The darkness envelopes (if you wish) uninterrupted; constellations shine huge and brilliant in the sky overhead.
And we haven't even gotten to the house yet, which is a perfection of artistic flourishes. We have been here a month and continue to discover and delight in them. Patricia and Simone have gathered shells, driftwood, stones... and arranged them all about as handles, towel racks, etc. Wooden bowls for the fruit and vegetables to display them to advantage.
You will be greeted by a huge floral bouquet of tropical blooms. The queen bed is very comfortable, flanked by bed tables of artistic wood chunks. The bathroom is a marvel on all levels. The lighting can be high or low, depending on your needs. The kitchen has everything necessary to prepare gourmet meals. We would walk to Vim's, the local renowned fisherman, and they would be coming in with the day's catch just off the boat: lobster, shrimp, mahi-mahi, red snapper. Estrella has an oven! A rarity in this area, so use it to advantage if you are cooking.
If not, you can go to Marvin's a local eatery for the casada; the Bakery in Cabuya is just beyond for an incredible smoothie and fish sandwich. Everything is great.
Waterfalls and lagoons abound in easy walking distance. I want to tell you that you will be so pleased that you selected to stay in Estrella.
