It is better than you imagine! Best vacation ever. It was our first time renting a house and I don't regret it one bit!!! It was just the two of us, and it was perfect. If you like traveling with a bunch of people this would also be a great choice, but it was peaceful and romantic, and just what we were looking for. If you want night life don't stay here. It is far from the hot spots. It is close the rainforest if you like hiking as we do, and the beach is one of the best in the world.
