Cacao Monkeys provides comfortable accommodations in a natural forest setting. The cacao plantations and secondary forest have benefited from over 25 years of planting. Guests can view many types of mammals, birds, amphibians, insects, and reptiles from the bungalows and trails set amidst all the plants and trees. The Caiman Deck is a wildlife viewing point located at the edge of the creek. The bungalows, sitting next to the Quebrada Ignacia, have three options for accommodations designed for families, groups of friends, or couples. A cafeteria provides fresh Costa Rican coffee, and a hot drink at sunset. There is also a shared kitchen available that guests can use to cook.
