We were there in February 2014 - just beautiful! The WOW factor when you first walk into the resort area is amazing - viewing the Pacific Ocean and seeing the jungle at the same time. This resort is a hidden gem and we will definitely be back. We have met amazing people there and Arne and Bibi are the best hosts! We have recommended this to our friends as well. To be honest - this felt like a tiny bit of paradise. Did not miss air conditioning or television as we had our computers. The pool and grounds are immaculate. FreshAir did a great job posting the local information and photos - nicely done. Check the links - and see for yourselves! It was difficult to leave after meeting so many nice people and yes, to have to put clothes on!

on a sour note, the west coast of CR has been experiencing an outbreak of dengue fever in the last 4 years, to record levels. The government launched a effort in 2011 to combat it but the levels of cases per year in the last 3 years has been 11000, 26000 then 49000, even with the governments efforts (which to me judging by the numbers is not working well). we love cr but will not go back as that disease can be serious, especially if you have any other risk factor. google it. Tourist sites usually dont mention things like it.

Living in Costa Rica, we are well aware of the risk of dengue fever and we take precautions to not attract the mosquitoes. Luckily, we have very few of those little buggers come to visit where we are located, far enough away from the river and on top of the hill where there is more breeze than the insects like.

Personally, I know one gringa who has lived here for lots of years and got the dengue, all other cases I have heard about are local people who live close to the rivers and are less diligent about cleaning up around their houses.

The biggest risk for getting bit is during rainy season, the part of the year when we have the fewest tourists visiting. Granted, there is still a risk the rest of the year, if there is clean standing water around where you are, but dengue is not rampant among the tourists.

Now that this new thread is underway I have locked the old 2012-2013 thread that COCR resurrected last week. Continue your discussions here.

Why would you do that Bill. I reference my first trip report that includes a link and much more detail in this thread. I understand if you don't want two trip reports on the same resort appearing on the front page, but at least make the link work

FreshAir--the reason the other thread was locked is that the resort kept bringing it up to the top themselves. Here is a link to your first trip report in the trip report archives.

We are back for our third trip and hope it's not the final one. We arrived last Thursday and its every bit as beautiful as when we left it two years ago. Sadly, Arni and Bibi put it on the market due to some commitments in the states and with her father in Denmark. We are hoping that it would be nudists who buy it and keep it as such. I'm not saying this for advertising purposes, the reality is if you have any inkling to try it, I think they are CO until Easter but certainly check if you're interested. We're here for another week and hope we'll be able to come back and enjoy it the way we have in each of our three visits.

For the benefit of Those of you who might be visiting, a new restaurant we tried, ElChivo, Mexican and great atmosphere, food and service. Another breakfast spot in Guiones, a short drive is Rosi's. About 10 tables on a covered patio. Banana pancakes to die for and most every breakfast is prices at $5.60 in dollars and huge portions. Actually ate there the past 2 days. More later as the relaxation continues.
