The space

Equilibrio offers guests six casitas: each within its own private area of the the farm complete with fruit trees, wildlife, and paths leading to your secluded gazebo, outdoor desks, hammocks, and easels.Your casita features a large bedroom with a soaring thatched-palm ceiling, two queen-sized beds, 180-degree open-air views, reading loft, walk-through closet, and indoor bathroom leading to your private outdoor garden shower.
The casitas are scrupulously screened-in to keep insects out; yet, since the screens are virtually invisible, guests appreciate an unobstructed connection with the outside environment.

Exceptional ventilation combined with the shade of surrounding trees keeps the casitas fresh throughout the day and night. Tropical breezes blow most of the year and all casitas have multiple fans.
Casitas include solar hot-water showers, two large safe boxes, wifi, mini-fridge, coffee-tea maker, Standard electrical outlets (120 v as in USA), and standard flush toilets.

Hammocks and rocking chairs await you in the outdoor gazebo, just a short walk from your casita, though still within your private section of the farm. The open-air, palm-roofed gazebo is surrounded by dense vegetation and makes for a fantastic place to relax, meditate, practice asanas, watch birds, butterflies, and just generally take in the natural beauty.

Equilibrio accommodates groups of up to 12 people: with double occupancy in the 5 Rancho Casitas and the 1 Fruit Field Casita. With triple occupancy in the 5 Rancho Casitas, groups of up to 17 people are welcome.

Equilibrio was all that I hoped for and more. The owners, James and Gabriela have put much thought into the experience, anticipating what might delight their guests. There was plenty of space to relax, create, read, meditate, play, and enjoy the jungle, river, and beach. The casitas are fenced off from each other to create large, private jungle "yards." The 15 acre retreat is near town, but secluded, and each large casita has its own sizable part of the whole. I loved our "Guitar" casita which brings the best parts of the outside in -- the jungle view, the bird sounds, the breezes, and leaves out the bugs and rain. Heaven. The mosquito netting walls simply disappear. Our casita had plenty of bottled water, a refrigerator, coffee maker, coffee and tea, a closet room, and a large bathroom with a door that leads to a spacious, private, luxurious, solar-heated outdoor shower. We also had a private palapa with hammocks and rocking chairs. Outside our fence, down the trail was a larger shared space with more hammocks and rockers that was also the main gathering place/dining room/performance space. The staff is nearly invisible, but always there when you need them, smiling and helpful, serving food and drinks. The food was outstanding, featuring local vegetables, fruit smoothies and juices. The resort is not directly on the beach, but a short, bird-watching boat ride from the beach. Canoes and kayaks are available for exploration of the river estuary and trips to the beach. Daily yoga was included in our package and was not to be missed. Three days of the week we were at the studio on Popoyo beach where we could listen to the waves and gaze at the horizon. The beach is huge, beautiful, and empty. The lovely yoga studio at Equilibrio was a large palapa with a wood floor and mosquito netting all around that can be unfurled, if needed. Our teacher, Brook was wonderful, tailoring classes to our needs. We loved her classes and also managed to squeeze in some private sessions. Equilibrio is a treat, far away from the touristy parts, with nature all around and thoughtful service. Many thanks to James, Gabriela, and Brook for creating such a serene retreat experience and for the fantastic yoga. I hope to return soon.
