Isla de Cabuya

Reviewed By GRM59 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

When the tide is out it is possible to walk to this lovely little island that is dedicated to a local cemetery. It was very peaceful and inspiring to visit there and as we were leaving, the perfect ending was a rainbow shining brightly over the island.

La Escuela Del Sol

Combine Spanish, Surfing, yoga, fire dancing and scuba certification in any combination for 1-12 weeks in Cabuya, Costa Rica. Programs include accommodations, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, waterfall hikes, bonfires and a whole lot of fun. We have just bought a wildlife rescue center and are building a new campus. We are currently accepting volunteers willing to help with construction while we renew our permits and soon we will have a wildlife volunteer program as well.

La Escuela del Sol truly exceeded my expectations! I stayed at the school for two weeks in July, taking private intermediate level yoga classes from 7:30-8:30 followed by Intermediate Spanish from 9:30-11:00 and Spanish conversation from 11:10-12:30. This was my week two schedule. During week one, I was joined by another student during yoga and language lab. July is the off-season, so there were only three other students on site at the time.
There were two yoga instructors, who had complimentary practices. Mandy has advanced knowledge of anatomy and led me in an exploration of how the different poses can be modified to enrich my practice. Jessica introduced me to yin yoga and also helped me discover ways in which I can push the boundaries of my practice to increase openness, flexibility, and strength. Both instructors helped me make significant improvements in the "correctness" of my poses.
I was equally pleased by the progress that I made during my Spanish classes. Wendy is very skilled at explaining how the academic concepts, such as the subjunctive tenses, are used in everyday life. During the private lessons, she was willing to modify instruction to meet my needs and interests. During the language lab, she shared engaging activities that helped build fluency. For example, playing games such as Trivial Pursuit or listening to popular music and translating the lyrics.
Socially, the experience was exceptional. During my off time I went on excursions with other students, we cooked meals together, and frequently explored the local sodas (restaurants) with the owner, Jeremy. A highlight of the stay was an evening barbeque on the beach followed by a bonfire and firedancing. I also enjoyed practicing my Spanish with the school staff, who were consistently friendly and helpful.
I also appreciated the accommodations. I stayed in the on-site villas, which have a stunning view of the ocean, porch swings, and wi-fi. Next year they will be equipped with a pool. Grocery stores, restaurants, and the beach were all within easy walking distance. For excursions to Montezuma, the bus was cheap and easy to use.
Short version, I highly recommend La Escuela del Sol.

Rio Lajas

Reviewed By ITGirlFC - London, Canada

Over the years, we crossed the bridge to this river many times (back and forth between Montezuma and Santa Teresa). This year we were lucky enough to rent a house within a 5 minute walk. Frequented by local families, the river provides shallow water during dry season and a safe place for children to swim.

We stayed in the house next door to the family who runs Mar Paraiso tours. They are friendly and helpful. They speak enough English to get you what you need. You will get a "no frills" fishing trip but you will not be disappointed (he will have some cool drinks and fresh pineapple on the boat for when you need it). I did not fish, but our housemates did almost every day and only once did they return empty handed. After you return with your catch, you can clean & filet it with Jose and then for a small fee, he and his wife Flori will cook you an amazing dinner of your fresh catch which you can enjoy right there on the beach. Schedule at least 2 trips just in case the fish aren't biting on the first trip. But wow, my friends caught huge mahi-mahi, jack fish, tuna, and others. Always bring and wear "water shoes" in this area. It is quite rocky.

La Selva

Reviewed By Tina F - Hudiksvall, Sweden

Väldigt gott öl på detta microbryggeri. Vår favorit var Amber. Förutom att man får god öl så fick vi även en intressant och givande pratstund.
Vi rekommenderar att ni stannar till vid denna lilla pärla!
