My family and I (wife and 19-year old daughter) stayed at the Look Out Inn in Carate on the Osa Peninsula from 18-22 Aug 06 and absolutely loved the place. Everything - and I really do mean everything - was perfect. You name it - the view, the food, the location, the staff, the inn itself - everything allowed you to relax, get away from the stresses of your life and simply drink everything in. The wildlife (especially the scarlet macaws) was simply amazing. We held a boa constrictor in our hands the very first morning of our arrival. Terry Conroy and his staff are true professionals, but they don't project that kind of air. Their desire is to welcome new friends instead of new guests and they absolutely succeed. For most of our stay at the Look Out Inn, we were his only friends, and so the service we received was total and complete. He set up offsite adventures for us - he even helped us look for frogs and spiders one evening! The sunset views from his deck are simply amazing and the time we were there was extremely well spent. My only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough. Little else during our subsequent 3 weeks in Costa Rica compared.
Oh ... and we were there during the "green season" (i.e. rainy season). It turned out to not be a problem at all. The rains were a nonplayer for us.
You really should try the Look Out Inn - you won't be disappointed.
