Yes I did get a massage at Maruba it was wonderful. No, I did not buy anything at the village in Bomba,but the stuff was really nice there. I did not see any treetop places to eat at Maruba,just at the main restuarant,by the bar.But I finally got a chance to see the rooms at Maruba,those were very nice.
Yes, you are pretty much in my backyard.Not very many people from Ohio,travel there. Have fun in November'02. I am trying for December/January.
As far as the smile goes,all I could say is that I love it there and it just does that to me.
