The lodge sits on a verdant hillside, only a five minute walk from the beach. This region is the epicenter of biodiversity on the planet, with more than 2% of the world's species in our backyard (that's more than all of N. America!).
We offer comfortable cabins with a casual elegance surrounded by lush gardens and a hundred acres of our private rainforest reserve. Easily explore uncrowded tropical beaches and winding forest trails, or simply relax in your cabin and wait for the monkeys and macaws to parade through the network of mango and other native fruit trees that front the property.
Additionally, many other activities and guided tours can be arranged such as kayaking, horseback riding, surf lessons, sportfishing, hiking, rappelling, even gold panning. Of course, doing "nothing" on a vacation is a luxury in and of itself; a breezy lounge with games, books, and music affords an opportunity to do just that. Whether adventuring or decompressing, we provide a great variety of local, artisanal, and organic fare to nourish body and soul and prepare you for your next discovery.
Nearest the cape, this excellent point-reef break provides a very steep, fast wave that breaks to the right from low to medium high tide. Intermediate-advanced to Expert.
The middle of the three beaches, with a wave that breaks over a reef and within a secluded cove. The steep berm of the shore tends to return the energy back towards the lineup, causing the wave to jack-up, producing unforgettable pitching lips and steep sections. Hollow on the inside. Intermediate to Expert.
The third break, Punta Pan Dulce, is a double point break that has been likened to Rincon in California, ( minus the crowd), and has several fast, hollow sections that break over a rock bottom. When big, provides a nice, rippable wall, and rides of 2 minutes plus are not uncommon. Flocks of scarlet macaws circle the break, and land in almond trees along the shore, and turtles often surface while you wait for a set. Inside section, all levels. Outside section, Intermediate to Expert.
