A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE AND A GREAT FIND!
Contacting Cassidy and making arrangements was made easy. We were filled with detailed information and quickly recognized that we were working with a great team. Guillermo, the property manager, and Donal, a care taker, were there to meet us as we arrived in Sierpe. Both were helpful, and an integral part in the experience we had. Being transported to the house by boat was a great kickoff into our adventure. Donal stopped along the way as Guillermo pointed out a crocodile, a few different types of monkeys and birds, as well as, gave us the lay of the land through a local's eyes. Guillermo and Donal helped bring all our necessities up to the house, showed us around, and then left us to settle into the pura vida lifestyle. We found the cabina to be well equipped and perfectly comfortable. We soaked in the smells and the sounds and couldn't wait to get out there and explore. Explore we did! We quickly got into a morning and early evening routine of walking the property and taking different routes to discover all its beauty. We enjoyed the sunrise and sunsets from the many perches that sit above the canopy and the river below. We made good use of the kayaks that were there, paddling the different waterways and seeing the wildlife that make the estuaries their home. We were thrilled by the abundant presence of the white faced monkey, which made daily visits right outside the cabina.
(I could, and did, spend hours being entertained by them.) Being woken by the howler monkeys became a welcomed alarm and usually meant that it was time to get out the Costa Rican coffee press, make the morning brew and go find a perch for what was sure to be a beautiful sunrise. Bugs were there, of course, but with a dose of repellant they were a non-issue. Had we wanted to get out and explore all the different excursions, we knew it was just a matter of calling Guillermo. However, we had spent the previous week being the active traveler and knew that Sierpe del Pacifico was our time to get rejuvenated and relax. We did fish one day and fed off of our catch for the next 2 days. We spent 1 day back in Sierpe and since we had a rental car, went up the coastline to a beautiful beach that Guillermo suggested. I just can't say enough about this place and the hospitality of the team. If you go and invest yourself in the experience and what it has to offer, you will not leave disappointed. Hands down, a memorable vacation!!!
