I live in Tamarindo, Costa Rica and every time I need to get away I always go to La Caroline Lodge. There is just something about this place that makes it absolutely magical! The gardens are beyond gorgeous, the stone hot tub heated by fire right next to the river is the BEST and the food cooked by Edwina and the other ladies over a fire-heated stove is to DIE for! Almost everything that you eat and drink at La Carolina comes from the far and is organic. The slow roasted honey-glazed are absolute heaven. But what really makes this place is the staff. The farm is a labor of love for owners Bill and Karien. Karien is super friendly and lovely and responds to emails really quickly. The ladies who work in the kitchen could not be more accommodating. I love the coffee at Carolina with fresh cows milk and there women always have it waiting for me when I go. Alejandro who runs the farm is the happiest and sweetest man you could imagine. He will take you for horseback rides around the farm and will also take you on a tour of Rio Celeste which is nearby. He knows everything about the flora and fauna in the park. If you want to see a real piece of Costa Rica, you must stay at La Carolina Lodge. They have a new cabin called Toucan that has its own private fire heated hot tub overlooking the river. Thanks again to Edwina, Ernestina, Alejandro and Karien for an amazing stay! I am already planning my next trip back!
