Beginning with the 20 minute boat ride on Daniel T's boat, our 4 day vacation started off the right way! This visit was our second, staying with friends in Dan's beautiful, secluded home on Cayo Costa, a true tropical island paradise!
My wife and I enjoyed exploring the island both on foot, and on one of the two ATVs, which were great fun and easy to operate.
We will definitely be back

Management response:

Thank you Francis and to everyone that enjoyed this beautiful place for a midweek holiday.

Beginning with the 20 minute boat ride, the true tropical getaway was underway. Daniel T, the house owner, made my wife and me, and our friends feel immediately at home. Cayo Costa is indeed a pristine tropical island, and Daniel's house is the epitome of comfortable seclusion. The house comes with 2 ATVs which were great fun. We all enjoyed exploring the island, with it's miles of trails, miles of white sand beaches, fabulous shelling, great bird/wildlife watching (dolphin sighting were common). The house is perfect for either a romantic getaway or a group vacation. We will definitely be back!
