This is the third time we've stayed at LookOut Inn in Carate. What a great respite from the winter to go to this wild place filled with flowering plants, roaring ocean, and so many species of birds I lost count. We stayed in the Blue Butterfly this trip, an open air, roofed platform up high enough to catch cool breezes. Here's the thing about the jungle: if you sit quietly for long enough, you'll see the whole busy world fly or crawl by. Monkeys and giant iguanas in the trees, coati mundis scurrying in the underbrush, scarlet macaws screaming across the blue sky in a streak of red. My favorite thing this time was kayaking in the lagoon. Scott was our guide and took us on a paddle to see spoonbills, storks, and far-off caimans (just the way you want them...) I had the best massage from Julie. And Terry and Katya, as always, are so welcoming, so friendly. And their staff was so accommodating. We'll be back again.
