Parrot Nest Jungle Lodge

  Tommy walking up to Cabin 5, where we stayed in the 2nd night. We preferred this cabin and didn't mind the shared bathroom facilities at all. Very hot showers! Yay!
  Egan running down the path from Cabin 5. The grounds were lushly landscaped---beautiful!
  Here is the outdoor common area where we had all our meals and much of our hanging out time, as it was raining the majority of our visit. The family who owns and runs the place live upstairs. Eight-year-old Katia is an early riser, so she would come down around 6:30am and make us coffee!
  Fun! Here is one of the two tree houses available to rent. From their website: "Parrot Nest Lodge is a truly unique tropical experience. Spending the night under a 100’ guanacaste tree in a thatched tree house is like nothing else! The lodge is surrounded on three sides by the Mopan River, so a refreshing swim in clear water is never far away and the wildlife of the area abound. Yes, parrots are in great number here, along with hundreds of other types of birds, making this an ideal location for bird watching. Coati, agouti, otter, and the giant iguana are among the many animals which are regular visitors to our beautiful gardens which, though lush and exotic, are virtually mosquito free, a real bonus for those who love the great outdoors - and a good night’s sleep."
