Beautiful, just beautiful! Every floor, wall, and column are marble. About every 20 feet you see a unique statue or art piece, mostly Christianity 16th century era. Water falls and lush landscaping galore. The rooms were just as beautiful with very soft comfortable beds and as many pillows, blankets, and oversized terry towels as you want. Extremely clean and well kept, curtius and helpful employees that seem to like being there and most of all the food was outstanding along with ALL the service.

In the rain forest, it's all walking, so someone who may carry things like cameras, video, a change of clothes (which is a very good idea); use a back pack, keep your hands free for grabbing onto a rail, rope or tree stump for steep spots, also sneakers or hiking boots are a must.

Scuba diving is available for a fee at the resort with lessons and a shallow dive. Very visible waters but a little rocky from the shore line. Try to take the lesson and charter with a group.
