Perched in the hills above Samara is the location of this boutique lodging. We arrived here by rented car from Liberia where we started our first time trip to Costa Rica. After a couple hours we arrived at Las Ranas Lodge and were greeted by our most gracious host, Olivier and his charming family. We rented one of the 10 rooms -- the only one with a "kitchenette. We ended not doing any cooking in our room since the inclusive "Tico" breakfast, and reasonable, excellent restaurants could be found in the towns of Samara and Carillo. After the first few hours of acclimating, we turned off our A/C and went native with screened windows wide opened enjoying the pure breezy air, and the surroundings sounds of nature. Our large balcony opened to the forest canopy where birds, and other wild critters could be observed. Also, a perfect view of Playa Samara and the coast line offered spectacular sunrises. Each morning we were awakened by the sounds of stirring birds and howler monkeys. Olivier was very helpful in setting up activities for the day -- kayaking, zip-lining, snorkling, etc...We saddly had to leave this little corner of paradise. Las Ranas Lodge is the perfect place to experience the Costa Rica "Pura Vida" and get your batteries recharged.
