OUR CLIENTS CALL THE "LOST PARADISE".
This is considered one of the most beautiful resorts of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, very near the Manuel Antonio National Park and the ideal place to spend a day out on a Tour to Cano Island without leaving this unique place. The gardens are known to be one of the most beautiful of the region with a very large collection of tropical plants, flowers and with a private trail to a waterfall in the middle of the rainforest.
