We wanted our first trip to Costa Rica to be an authentic taste of the country and all that it has to offer. We didn't want to stay at one of the huge resorts near Guanacaste. A small lodge was in order and La Paloma has so many stellar reviews online that it was an easy choice. We stayed at the lodge for a whole week and loved the experience. The staff is friendly and enthusiastic and arranges everything for you, giving you a rundown of the next day's events/tours the night before. The villa was spacious, clean and offered beautiful views of the Pacific from both levels. The food was delicious and fresh at every seated meal and we especially enjoyed the beautiful candlelit dinners where we had a chance to meet many different guests from all over the world. We were even treated to an hour of Capuchin monkey antics at the pool one day. Those are photos we will treasure forever. If you want a truly Costa Rican experience nestled in the rainforest with monkeys, Macaws and Toucans around every corner--You must visit La Paloma Lodge!!
