I stayed for two nights at the Lookout Inn in the brand new Blue Butterfly room (we were the first guests) and it was heaven. Polly the Scarlet Macaw came flying through the room (the room is not enclosed but open with half walls) to greet us and that was really exciting (but a bit frightening at first). Terry, the owner, is hilarious but such a gracious host!
The room was truly a highlight as it was so wide open and even had a hammock for us to lie in. It rained the last night we were there and the sound of rain on the thatched roof was so relaxing.
The beach is just down a few steps and across the little road. We took a long walk down the beach and went inland just a bit to look for crocodiles (none to be found) but it was a nice walk anyway.
