After a couple of weeks I feel we have truly set up home. We are currently staying at Bella Vista Resort and it is a wonderful place. The casita we are in is called Laguna Vista, as it has a lovely view of the lagoon. It is a cozy one bedroom villa with a kitchen, dining area and couch/futon. It comes with enough amenities to comfortably take care of two people. The staff that work on the grounds and in the restaurant, Aji, are super friendly and give you as much privacy as you want.
There isn’t a pool on the property, but we do have access to the pool at Grand Caribe which is very nice and only a 3 minute walk down the beach.
However, if you are not adverse to salt water you can tan and hang out on the Bella Vista pier which I personally prefer. A little more rustic but more of the local feel.
As mentioned previously we have a resident crocodile in our lagoon. On the way to town last night it showed itself as we were crossing the walkway over the lagoon. Very cool. Also demonstrated why you always need to have a camera on you.
We do have some nicer reptiles that come onto our deck.
To get to our place you either come up the road or the beach. As we do not have a golf cart for transportation right now we are renting bikes. This gives us the option of taking whichever route we prefer. Due to the condition of the road right now the nicer route is up the beach.
The last thing to comment on with our accommodation is the restaurant attached to it. Aji is a high quality Spanish based establishment that has what I think is the perfect setting. We have eaten here many times over the years and have never had a meal that disappoints. Reasonably priced and excellent food in a ideal setting is hard to beat.
