My husband & I just had a wonderful vacation, staying 5 nights at La Paloma Lodge, in Drake Bay, Costa Rica. All the staff was just wonderful. They offer small well organized tours of the rain forest, snorkeling & diving trips, and my favorite the river boat tour of the mangrove jungle. The food was just great, breakfast, lunch and dinner included in the price. Their rooms are fabulous and consisted of a beautiful balcony area that opened up to the ocean and the jungle--where you could see lots of animals right from there. We didn't need air conditioning as they situated their rooms for a cool ocean breeze. We stayed the extra 2 nights just to relax, although we could have taken more tours right from the lodge.. There are lots of things to do right at the lodge versus traveling all around Costa Rica to see other places. We would definitely recommend La Paloma Lodge for young adults to moderate and active senior citizens. Their sidewalks are a little narrow--so we wouldn't recommend for people who have problems with balance, bad hips or knees.
