If you are looking for a place to stay that is eco-friendly and secluded, I would highly recommend Lookout Inn Lodge and Carate. Our room (in fact, al the rooms) was very private and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean and the jungle. It was so peaceful to sleep at night and wake up to the open air. The food was delicious and very local! The staff couldn't have been friendlier. Terry and Katya, the owners, were very helpful and enthusiastic!
We chose Carate because of the wildlife and we certainly got that. Howler monkeys and macaws were frequent visitors! We were just a step away from the jungle and spent our days hiking as well as swimming and relaxing on the beach. You truly feel like you have the beach to yourselves. It is heavenly!! The view from the lodge is absolutely breathtaking. We looked forward to drinks and dinner every night and then to bed when the sun set! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place!More
