Mike's beautiful 47-acre mountainside property includes walking trails and a butterfly rancho. In addition to the butterflies, you might spot howler monkeys, agoutis and iguanas. He also has colonies of wild bees; you can buy their honey in the gift shop. Book ahead for a tour.

If you need a place to lay your weary head, Jungle Mike has two cute cottages (US$65) on a hill overlooking a sublime stretch of coast. You can also pitch a tent on his farm.
