My wife and I just returned from our third trip to the Lookout Inn, Carate, Costa Rica. As always the food was superb, the wildlife was everywhere and Terry and Katya, who run the place, couldn't have been more accommodating. It's probably the best place we know where you can completely unwind as you walk the beach, hike the jungle or just take long naps. This time we stayed in the Blue Butterfly room, which we highly recommend. We also kayaked the nearby freshwater lagoon where we saw dozens of different species of birds, caimans, monkeys, and even an otter. We're already talking about when we'll return later this year. And finally, I think it says a lot about a place when at least half the other guests visiting at the same time we were, were repeat visitors. We thought we were veterans having visited three times, but many others were going on 7 to 10 years. That's high praise for any hotel anywhere in the world.
