SPA SERVICES - Please ask... We are looking into the prospect of making massage and perhaps other services available.
DINE - Need we say more?
Please Note: Maravilla is located within a reasonable drive of beaches and other island attractions. Many guests set out after breakfast (often packing lunch!) for day trips and return by dark for dinner.
WATER HIKING AND SWIMMING - Suit up for adventure with our big rubber boots. There are three streams on the property which empty into larger waterways and these meander through valleys, uncovering many and pools, and surprises around every corner. In the immediate vicinity, you may choose from a number of waterway destinations, with spa-sized pools and flowing rivers for swimming or just dipping. Not far away is a fabulous "swimming hole", also with great hiking -
HORSES - we have three sweet and easy (Please see Horses page for updates) including paso finos, the gaited breed renowned for its "ride-the-glide" trot. Our stable is suitable both for beginners and for more experienced riders. There honestly is nothing comparable to seeing the terrain on horseback! A trail ride will take you to mountaintop vistas and through the jungle to streams and waterfalls.
FLORA AND FAUNA - Birdwatching: Hummingbirds and finches, hawks and owls, cuckoos and more. A variety of hardwood and flowering trees, orange, guava, avocado, mango, many types of bananas and towering bamboo, among others. The flowers
which we cultivate include gingers and heliconias of many types and orchids.
CREATE - enjoy sketching or painting - we ourselves are artists and encourage and, if you like, can assist in your pursuits. Maravilla and the island offer excellent photo opportunies, as you can see from all the photos we have taken for the website.
RELAX - On a quiet night, we offer an entertaining and eclectic library and a good collection of movies. In the cool winter evenings, enjoy a toasty fire and stargaze from our cottage.
Note re: MOUNTAIN BIKES - We have had several bike enthusiasts recommend our horse trails and roads for mountain bikes. At this time, we do not have bikes, but hope to in the future. Guests are welcome to bring their own, however.
