Carlos and staff have done a GREAT job of getting the lodge in excellent shape. Our room was very large, clean, and one could tell it had recently been renovated. Carlos (new lodge manager as of two months) has set the tone of service - service - service. Nothing was to much trouble from the kitchen staff, housekeeping, fishing guides, and van drivers. Ask Jason (fishing guide) to give you a private tour of his home village of 400 population. His mom is the president of the local turtle foundation, so go with lots of questions for her. Oh yea, ask Juan (van driver) to make a stop at a local restaurant on your ride back to San Jose to experience some local foods and culture.
The fishing was off do mainly to not being able to locate live sardines. I 'think' with hundreds and hundreds of Jacks in the area they cleaned out the sardines. You could see them moving like herds of buffalo under the boat. If you know Jacks, they can clear out acres of bait fish in a day. Did we catch Jacks..........Da!!!!
