In a lush area of the central rain forest known for its friendliness, gentleness and calm, a guest cottage for two once Puerto Rico's oldest and largest coffee haciendas, offers tranquility, beauty and a combination of serenity and adventures. It's a perfect getaway for two.
My husband and I stayed at Jungle Jane's Jungle Lodge June 11th and 12th. It was wonderful. The lodge is in an extremely picturesque setting and Marlene has made it the perfect couple's retreat. I only wish we would have decided to stay more than just two days. Prior to our visit, Marlene and I chatted on the phone and via e-mails. She was so much fun and we couldn't wait to meet her. She came over our first night w/ her best friend Rosie to introduce herself and see if things were to our liking. I told her that other than the mosquitoes (it had just rained and the mosquitoes were enjoying the damp air and fresh blood), we were having a great time. She informed me that bug spray was in the lodge bathroom and suggested I spray it on quickly...she truly had thought of everything to make our stay an enjoyable one. On our 2nd night she came over and we chatted a long time. We invited her in for a drink and talked a lot more. She invited us over to her home and we gladly accepted. Once we passed through the gate we were greeted by her dogs; they love attention. Brett (my husband) and Marlene worked on the computer downloading our itinerary while Rosie and I played w/ 3 adorable kittens they'd found that morning along the highway. We joined Marlene for her evening stroll to the barn to feed the horses and goats, bid them goodnight and returned to the lodge. There is nothing like the sounds of the jungle lulling you to sleep (coqui, lizards, birds, insects, the river and raindrops on the roof). It is simply wonderful. I awoke in the night to a coqui singing inside the lodge. I was able to locate him and take a few pictures; he was the first coqui I had seen on the trip and I was so excited. Also a little lizard was on Brett's chest watching him sleep; it was hilarious and I wanted a photo so badly, but knew the flash would wake Brett so I passed. We awoke our final morning and had a quick bite on the chairs outside just enjoying the view one last time. We walked to Marlene's and thanked her for a wonderful time. We wanted photos of she and Rosie as keepsakes and she gladly obliged. We gave big hugs all around then we continued on our journey. Marlene continued to e-mail us and has even called to see how the rest of our travels have gone. I highly recommend Marlene (aka Jungle Jane) and her Jungle Lodge.Wendy G
