Our stay at La Carolina was magical. It started with much helpful advice from Karen even before we left home. She was unable to get us a cabin for all of our dates needed, so we opted for a separate house just outside of the property.
Lovely Karien greeted us and showed us the property (we had full use of everything, all meals and could shower in the lodge if we wished.) On the tour we saw an elusive sloth up a tree!
Our 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage was a tranquil retreat with a rushing river out back and monkeys and birds easily visible in nearby trees.
We were made to feel like family right away. Over the course of our 3 night stay we met lot of nice folks from all over the world. We shared meals and evenings by the fire or in the relaxing riverside hot tub.
Bill was the perfect host, as well. He kept our 12 year old son entertained, having him help on the ranch with Bill and Karen's adorable and well behaved little boys (ages 2 & 4). We kept busy hiking, touring the property and lake with Juan Carlos, horseback riding with Alejandro, visiting Rio Celeste and eating huge awesome meals from locally grown and mostly organic ingredients. We also did a lot of relaxing. Our son stacked wood, milked a cow and watched as a pig was prepared for dinner. It was a wonderful experience that none of us will ever forget!
