Getting Here is Easy

“Kura is perched up on the mountain overlooking Uvita, the Whale’s Tail and the Pacific, so crazy views are pretty much always guaranteed. It’s an adventure getting up to the resort but they make it easy. We got Kura to organize all our domestic transport so we could just sit back and enjoy the (bumpy!) ride to paradise.”
