But do opt for a spa treatment at the pool-side spa. A small booklet details the enticements. Choose an exfoliating chocolate scrub that is finished off with a cacao body oil or try a deep-cleanse coffee scrub that is completed with a mango-coconut glaze.
Mud, coffee or chocolate wraps are available. Natural facial masks come in avocado, papaya, and tomato. There is a sunburn soother and even a mosquito bite treatment, though it must be said that mosquitoes were scarce in the dry season from January to June.
Swedish massage and deep tissue massage are done under candlelight to a contemporary jazz soundtrack. The choice of scented oils includes rosemary and tangerine. Don't miss the citrus scrub that gets rid of dry skin on hands or feet.
During your stay you can also check out the organic garden. Nestled behind the casitas, its neatly-cared-for vegetables and herbs do well in the rich tropical soil. And look for a souvenir in the lobby gift shop that has a large display of bowls carved of exotic rainforest woods.
