Playa Escondida is an unusually wonderful place to escape to. The grounds are incredibly maintained and so natural in its design. The rooms are all different and tucked into the jungle in an unobtrusive way. The beach is well groomed. The water can be a...More

You need to understand what PE is all about. This is a quiet, intimate peaceful experience unlike what you may have seen on Bachelor in Paradise. If you want to party, go into town, a $5 cab ride. That is where all the... More
