We welcome all our guests to share our dinner with us at no extra cost. Turtle nesting season from March to August is a unique experience. Some, rivers, waterfalls, hiking trails and beaches are a 5 - 15 minute drive from the lodge. There are others around but you may have to do a bit more driving. Apart from sharing our dinner, if there is something special you would like to eat, Nella would be happy to do it for you but would need advance notice, this of course would be at an extra cost.
