I was aware that this was fairly basic accommodations but they were spotless and the owner/organiser was very helpful and ensured our day trips went well. Great boat handling for all the transports.
Didn’t see many staff .
Guide for the tour to San Pedrillo station was pleasant but had no knowledge of the wildlife .She did find the animals but the other tour guides appeared to have some knowledge in this area and she clearly knew very little which was quite disappointing


Simple but Amazing accomodation and food. Perfect location. Beautiful staff. Really great experience


It is very unusual fantastic experience,stay in a cabin with screens in a Jurassic Park!


Very rustic lodging, but the location is excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. The food is delicious and plentiful considering the price. The rooms closer to the ocean are better. Rooms that are in the back area require a little hiking.
