After travelling to Mariposa in May 2019 I knew I needed to return. My second experience was equally exceptional if not better. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are delightfully designed and exceptionally clean. The grounds are well taken care of and naturally beautiful. I loved the intimate pool setting and large, jungle situated yoga deck.....
Now for the FOOD.....As a person who loves to eat, I must say the food here was absolutely amazing. Plant based, organic, local and filling. I was travelling with my 6 year old, as we know children tend to be fussy eaters, there were tons of options for her to eat--that alone made the trip more enjoyable. Norma, who works in the kitchen, was very helpful and prides herself on pleasing guests, ensuring they have enough to eat and that the guests enjoyed their meals.
Freddie, waiter and bar tender was always pleasant. He ensured we stayed hydrated with fresh watermelon and lime juice, which he made daily. Packed the cars with refreshments and snacks for road trips and was always there to greet us upon our return to Mariposa.
One of the new elements at Mariposa is the small and growing animal sanctuary. It was amazing to be able to interact with the chickens, pigs and goats that were rescued from slaughter. A true animal lovers dream.
Day trips to the beach and water pools and falls were incredible. Along the way we got to stop and eat at local restaurants, taking in the local sites and lifestyle.
Finally - IT WAS VERY SAFE!
Had an amazing time at Mariposa Jungle Lodge. Aline and Freddie were the most attentive, friendly and caring host. Chef Norma's cooking was overwhelming delicious. We enjoyed every moment. Already recommended them to my family and friends. A must visit!
Love the nature trails.
Thanks again guys. Keep up great work.
Cordelia and family!
