Description
After bumping along a rough track for a journey of some two hours by jeep deep into the jungle and mountains of Costa Rica as far as you can possibly go and then some on horseback, it's more than a surprise ...More to suddenly arrive at the most extraordinary place – a place so incongruous that it shouldn't be there, a Lost World where the mist and clouds drift and hug the mountains creating a scene more reminiscent of the setting for a Jules Verne or Conan Doyle movie.And, like something out of a movie, a world of strange and unexplained happenings and mysteries – with an aura and mystique that envelops and overwhelms its very existence.Not for the faint-hearted or timorous, and far from a 'tourist' destination – few people venture here other than those hungering for escapades uncommon in modern times or looking for that impossible dream – a place that doesn't exist any longer.Here is all but a lost world, reached by an almost impossible 'road', where the mist and clouds drift and hug the mountains creating a scene that is more reminiscent of a Jules Verne or Conan Doyle movie - a place beyond the affairs of this world.Here is true Escape, a way of life where no matter for whom or why, there is a gateway and getaway to that hidden place and time – that true hideaway and untroubled situation that we all crave at one time or another – a setting where time has stood still and where there is an overwhelming feeling of being beyond the affairs of this world.A tankard or two of ale served in the Bucket of Blood saloon when the valley is as dark as a tomb and deathly still, coupled with stories of the strange events, unexplained happenings, mystical powers, and revelations emanating from the Chapel – may set off the living dreams that others have experienced in the enchanted Cottage That Time Forgot.Waterfalls abound – perhaps a hundred in all – from the smallest to the single-drop 85-metre (280-feet) major falls reached by a challenging hike. Huge trees, rushing rivers, vibrant orchids, tropical plants, natural springs and a wide range of wildlife and numerous species of colorful birds make for a setting that is as exotic as it is dramatic. With a temperate mountain climate as near perfect as you could possibly get – with rarely a day too hot or too cold – here is a place that will arouse the passions and adrenaline in any red-blooded person – rich and raw, rough and ready, from a true frontier-style wedding like no other in the bewitching chapel, to the ultimate escape.
