We enjoyed our five day stay here so much that we extended for 2 further nights. Although there is not a great deal to do in Uvita, the national park is beautiful ($6 entry fee) and Scott, the owner, is happy to arrange any trips for you. October is a quiet time of year, so although there are a few good places to eat they were either closed or closed early. There are two small groceries stores nearby, and a really good supermarket in easy walking distance. However, the cabin and gardens are so comfy and peaceful it was a great place just to relax. The bed is incredibly comfy, the pool is nice for a dip to cool off, and the gardens are great for bird watching. There is also a great rancho for outdoor cooking, and a good outside seating area. Scott was a great host and made us feel very welcome, he even did some laundry for us. If you are looking for a great place to stay away from the crowds, then look no further.
