Exceptional 10.0
See the REAL Costa Rica, no shoes, no worries
Fabulously remote and romantic spot full of monkeys, wildlife, thundering surf, scarlet macaws, iguanas and all sorts of flora and fauna that you can't even imagine. This is a very rustic, family operated set of cabins, a bar and a restaurant that serves decent food with a great attitude and go above and beyond to be helpful. This is not a spot for you if you need a high end resort. No TVs, Internet, or hot showers. But... If you need that then you are in the wrong place and it's your loss. Travel an hour and a half by water taxi, kick off your shoes and kick back.
