Lynne and I wanted to thank Bill for taking such good care of us while we stayed at Pachamama. We loved our casita and the cooking. Thanks for all the extras --laundry, having beer for us when we arrived, potato chips and simply marvelous breakfasts and dinners. Sea Bass --Yum Yum! The trip was fantastic and you were a big...

Bill and Cathy are awesome hosts, and the location and value are great! You are surrounded by jungle and there are lots of critters to see. (There was a sloth hanging out right on the path to our bungalows.) It's very humid and hot/damp (at least in August), so bring light, quick-dry items and bug repellent. Earplugs are also a...

We loved our stay here. The location was perfect. Away enough from town but close to beautiful beaches. The snorkeling beach was close by and the snorkeling outstanding. Enjoyed the delicious breakfasts every morning and the dinner we had the night we arrived. From our casita we were able to view lots of wildlife. Howler monkeys were everywhere we had...

I've actually stayed here before and I still don't where to start. My wife and I stayed here a year previous and despite best intentions never wrote a review. This time I feel compelled to do so as Pachamama and it's owners Bill and Cathy are suberb hosts with an awesome setting. The property is treed and the structures well...

Wow, where to begin with Pachamama! We stayed in a bungalow, which was perfect. Comfortable bed with netting, clean beautiful bathroom, and a patio looking into the jungle. We had breakfast included in our stay, and it was delicious (especially the banana pancakes!) It is a wonderful place to stay to be off the beaten track, but still close to...

My wife and I spent a month in the one-bedroom house at Pachamama and it was the best vaction of our lives. The house and grounds are fantastic--well maintained and ideally suited to the jungle surroundings (clean, cool, and comfortable)--but Bill's service puts Pachamama in a class by itself. We had him prepare many of our meals, because they are...

This was our 4th time at Pachamama but this is the 1st time I decided to write a review. Pachamama is the perfect place to stay when you want to get away from it all and be one with nature. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and filled with nature including howling monkeys. Not to mention the beautiful beaches of Punta...

We couldn't say enough for our experience staying with Bill & Cathy at Pachamama. Simply put, we loved it. We were looking for a special vacation spot and lots of people told us to stay on the Pacific side. I'm really glad we didn't. We stayed in the house for 8 nights and from the deck we saw 2 types...

We had a great stay at Pachamama. We stayed for several nights in the house and really enjoyed the area. The breakfasts were good and we dined in one night and had Pachamama's shrimp/chicken pasta--really good and very reasonably priced too. Bill and Kathy are great hosts. We would surely stay at Pachamama again if in the area.

We spent a full month at Pachamama, staying in the one bedroom house. The entire experience was beyond what we hoped for. The area is beautiful. Pachamama is a short walk (or kayak paddle) to one of the loveliest beaches around, Punta Uva. (We also recommend visiting Playa Chiquita, a short bike ride away, and taking a beach walk down...
