The Osa Peninsula is an amazing place and La Paloma is the ideal way to experience it. The lodge fits in with the surroundings perfectly, providing spacious cabins with beautiful views of the jungle, the ocean, and the diverse wildlife of the area which can often be seen right outside your doors and windows. The staff is friendly and treats each group of visitors like guests in their own home. You are definitely not just a room number here - the staff learns your names before your arrival and clearly takes pride in learning about each group's daily activities and particular interests. The tours arranged through the lodge are fabulous, with excellent guides taking small groups to the various incredible locations in and around the Corcovado national park. The snorkeling at Cano island is spectacular with warm, crystal clear water providing incredible views of everything from sea turtles to rays to a myriad of colorful reef fish. And the night walk with 'bug lady' Tracie and Giancarlo shows guests a side of the rainforest life that is less often appreciated but is an absolute must-see for nature enthusiasts. All in all, La Paloma provided us with an unforgettable experience in one of the most spectacular destinations the country has to offer. We will definitely be coming back.
