Beautiful Green Island

Beautiful rooms, and the island is especially magic after the last day tripper leaves. Loved the fish feeding and complimentary beverages at sunset.

I highly recommend

3 nights in a treehouse was a delight capped only by the very enjoyable quality breakfast included in the service. The serenity of the accomodation and environment made for a memorable rainforest experience. I highly recommend the lodge and its staff for their quality services
