Great stay, helpfull and very friendly host. Right in the middle of the Jungle. What can you expect more...?! :) Highly recommended for a stay near Uvita.

Our experience at Tower 23 was very enjoyable. Richie is an excellent host ☺️ Room #2 was comfortable and has everything you need for a couple of days, I would recommend carrying books or something to entertain you during the night because there is no TV and the internet access is not good. However, it is a good place to stay. The trial to get there is super adventurous, although we were going in a Sedan without doubt the best is a 4x4. On the property we could see a Tucan, tepezcuintle, Morpho butterflies and currasow. It's a nice place, plus Richie has access to a private part of the National Park Beach, great for watching the sunset.

Host is an awesome guy we would love to be friends with. Very accommodating and gave specific directions though we still experienced frustration with access at the gate to enter. It was a rough road to reach his place, 4 wheel drive necessary. Room is small but view was fantastic.

The Tower is a hidden gem! The road to the place is a bit scary at first - bumpy and way up the hill but it's totally worth it. We stayed in the room on the second floor and it felt like a little treehouse in the wild. The room was equipped with a kitchen which had everything we needed and was incredibly clean. Richie is such a great host and helped us out with everything we needed. If you are looking for a relaxed time in the jungle, this is the best place to stay!

We had a fantastic two night stay with Richie, in Room 2, located in the "tower". Listening to the birds in the morning was just delightful. The room and ensuite were spotlessly clean, and well fitted out. The bed was so comfortable. Richie was very helpful with suggestions. We wish we could have stayed longer. It is so beautiful around Uvita. We would definitely stay again.

Richie has an amazing house in the middle of the jungle. The way up the hill with the car is certainly a challenge but if you don't give up you will be rewarded with amazing view over the jungle. Don't forget bugspray. Marino Ballena National Park and other great beaches are only a 15 min drive away.
