We thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Loma. It is a very special place and experience. You get to live in the jungle, enjoy a wide variety of activities, experience Henry and Margaret's special, genuine, personalized style of innkeeping and on top of it all, you can feel good that the lodge employs locals and gives back to the community....

I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said in other reviews! They are all dead on. Traveled with 4 kids (5 - 10), and 6 adults (aged 39 - very active 66) and had an amazing time. This is a great place for families. The kids absolutely adored it and are still talking about it weeks... More

La Loma is truly unique. At the heart of it are the owners Henry and Margaret who are amazing people. Their absolute dedication to La Loma shows in every aspect of the lodge from the lovely rooms, to the delicious fresh meals that contain many ingredients grown on the property, to the excursions that are great fun. This is a... More

This was a bit of a wildcard for me, as i wasn't sure if my non-traveller husband would be up for it (I have a propensity to sleep walk too so he was nervous) so i booked it without telling him! And we LOVED it. The food is to die for, the drinks are perfect, the hosts Margaret and Henry... More

Henry and Margaret have created an experience at their jungle lodge that is beyond special. Their care of your every need is skillfully nuanced and non invasive to your privacy . My wife and I wish we could live like this every day from the 7AM coffee and muffin delivery to the detailed planning of daytime excursions to the truly... More

From the first second Henry, the owner, picked us up in his boat, until he dropped us off back at our resort, this was an amazing, highly interesting experience that I would recommend to everyone. Henry shared so much knowledge with us about all different aspects of the chocolate making procedure, as well as general knowledge about the indigenous plant... More

My husband, 25 year old daughter and her best friend decided to take the La Loma Chocolate Tour last week during our stay at the Red Frog Beach Resort. Henry, the owner of the property, picked us up in his boat and took us back to La Loma, where we were introduced to his wife. Henry then took us on... More

How can I write about an experience that defies all past experiences, that is ncomparable to any place I've ever visited? From the moment we were greeted on the dock by Henry,who then walked us all to the lodge through a lush landscape, to the hour we departed, every moment was pitch perfect. A sampling: Coffee, silently delivered to our... More
