Last year we spent a week at the Look-out Inn in Carate, Costa Rica and had a wonderful time. But, sometimes, places you visit, lose a little luster on closer inspection with future visits. NOT this time, though. The Look-out Inn was just as much fun as the last time, and I believe, we are going to make it an annual event. Terry Conroy, his wife Katya, and their amazing staff do everything in their power to create a comfortable atmosphere in the middle of the jungle. Plus, the food is always extraordinary. The beach is just steps below the lodge and even just sitting on the deck you can see all types of wildlife. This time we even got to help a few straggling sea turtle babies find their way into the ocean. And, if you go, be sure to hire Eric the guide to take you into the nearby national park. He can spot wildlife you'd be sure to walk right by. Just be aware that this is not the place for folks who want air-conditioning, TV, or other amenities (which is part of the place's charm). Instead, bring headlamps and hike the beach at night!
