Réponse de Bruce :
Thanks for the great review Sean, and also your feedback here.
Yes, it is always a delicate balancing act for me with regard to the experience and environment I am offering at the casita. I fell in love with Costa Rica 25 years ago, and originally built myself a true jungle getaway deep in the Osa Peninsula -- off grid, off the beaten path, full-on jungle, fantastic, raw, awe-inspiring nature all around. And HUGE spiders, and snakes, and big eagles, and big cats! Casa Cashew is suburban by comparison -- but that is from my perspective, which clearly is not the same as the typical vacationer.
I have tried to be sensitive to this, and to make the casita a comfortable if not gilded cage from which to see at least some of Costa Rica's incredible biodiversity. I have found that most folks, even if initially overwhelmed by the proximity (and size) of the critters, eventually are enchanted by the experience. There really is nothing like it on tv or the internet.
Thanks again for staying with us. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay.
