Tucan Terra was recommended by a friend and staying there was absolutely wonderful! The views, the food, beaches, the park like grounds and cabinas were perfect. Truly a piece of paradise! Van is the greatest of host and cooks a fantastic multi course meal (upon request). There are also surfboards and boogie boards that we were able to use. One of the best things about this place is the price. So reasonable for such an ideal vacation. We will continue to return as often as possible!


Tripadvisor Review April 2016

We stayed at Tucan Terra for 5 nights in the two storied house run by a wonderful host – Van. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget. The house sits in a beautiful setting surrounded by well kept Gardens that have many exotic, colourful birds flying around in them. It’s surrounded by tall trees and the resident families of monkeys will keep you captivated for hours. The accommodation is pretty basic/rustic but it has everything you need – and is amazing considering it is all run using solar power. To lie in bed in the morning and hear the howler monkeys calling out – is something else. We were lucky to see several incredible nights where a huge red moon came up over the horizon – was a spectacular site. I loved it.
