Our hosts were extremely welcoming and so warm. We were shown around and warned about things to be careful about (wildlife, etc) which was very helpful. We met all of the staff and family right away, and everyone was so kind and we had wonderful conversations. Everything was comfortable and as stated on the website, it went above and beyond our expectations! The lagoon was refreshing and clean, and very healing. We spent a lot of time there, with no big problems. The rooms are rustic but cozy and comfortable. The vegetarian cuisine was homemade and absolutely delicious. We also took a yoga class, and the energy of our instructor was authentic and healing. Worth every penny!

Tambo Ilusion is wonderful. The land is beautiful. Swimming in the lagoon was such a healing experience. This is a great place for a deep immersion in nature, where you have access to walking trails, delicious & vitally healthy food, healing modalities,and caring hosts.

An experience like no other one, Armando and Johanne are great hostess, always willing to help and share their experiences and projects. Their preserved area in middle of jungle offers you days surrounded by real nature life in cozy cabanas called Tambo´s away from the noisy city. Be ready to wake up with the sound of the jungle, take a nap on the hamacas, swim on the pond or have a walk in the jungle. Lots of options for spending time without leaving preserved area. It´s only 10 min to city. Really good option... Thanks guys will never forget the wonderful expererience
