Our stay at the Lookout Inn was amazing. It was beautiful and very clean. We stayed at the Monkey Cottage for only three days, we wish we could have stayed longer. The food was delicious. After the first day we felt like we were part of their family and home. The owners and staff were wonderful and always smiling. We have many more trips planned to go to Costa Rica and we will always come back to the Lookout Inn. Terrys cheese was delicious! The atmosphere was always fun and happy. We love you and we will see you soon.

My daughter and I stayed a few days at the tail end of our trip - not long enough. We were greeted with smiles when we arrived and a wonderful lunch. We sat up high on the deck that over looked the beautiful scenery and saw our first Macaw pair. We then took a walk down the beach to a pond to do some bird watching. On our return we came upon the most magical sight. There were baby turtles all over the sand that had just hatched. I had goose bumps all over. Within 20 minutes is was over, we had been blessed with an amazing opportunity to witness such a thing. We hiked with a guide the next 2 days. The food was terrific and Terry and Katya were such delights. Cant wait to return.

Room Tip: Tiki Huts were fun.

Wunderschön, macht sprachlos. Die Unterkünfte sind einfach aber alles was es braucht bekommt man mitten im Jungle. Dusche, saubere Betten und wunderbares Essen. Terry und Katia sind wunderbare herzliche Gastgeber. Terry weiß immer etwas zu erzählen... Katia smile is everywhere..... Die Natur ist überwältigend.... Rote Aras, spydermonkeys Howler Monkeys...
Skorpione und Schlangen.
BBQ am Strand an New years Eve ... Noch nie haben wir so gutes Fleisch gegessen... Terry hat Schweine und Hühnerfleisch gebraten.... Es war soooooooo gut.

If paradise exists, it must be here in Costa Rica, and Katya and Terry is involved in them.
We had 14 friends who were on a bird and nature adventure to Costa Rica for 23 days and was the best trip we had ever been on.
And we were on 8 different hotels and lodges which were all fantastic, but there was still one that stood out as the very best and it was Look out in, it was a great place and the area was indescribably good, we were well received there were just a few rooms which were swapped around so we did what we had ordered, but it was quickly arranged without much panic.
So we got a thorough review of the area and was told mealtimes.
The place is owned by Katya and Terry were some amazing people, we were mostly has come to see the birds and we were really seeing ranging from hummingbirds to the big red macaws, eagles, hawks, herons, amazon parrots, pelicans where the largest flock was of 200 pieces, there were 4 different kinds of monkeys that had cooties, snakes that we saw in the area, except some of the toxic as we would have seen. And many other birds and animals.
Into areas so we also have some standing in a river and washed gold and were lucky enough to see it find anything and was up and see how they lived, it was under a piece of black plastic that was stretched out as if it were a tent they lived in, with fireplace and more beds, we also saw more sunsets were amazing.
So if anyone would like to visit Costa Rica to see a paradise, for it must be paradise, so must not fail to visit Katya and Terry and their amazing staff who were helpful with everything as soon as they saw we were looking something they were there, if there was anything they could do to help.
I experienced seeing BETWEEN 50-60 ara Macao (bright red macaws) an amazing sight, one of those experiences you can indulge in many other people to see
If there is anyone who would like additional information about something or other about our trip are welcome to contact me by e-mail amazon@parrot.dk

My wife took me to the Lookout for my birthday in August. I've never been given a better gift. The location alone would be worth the trip but we got so much more! If you can enjoy warm and sunny weather, beautiful scenery, and wild animals at nearly every turn, this place is for you! If you don't need tourist trappings and shopping centers, this place is for you! If you enjoy great meals from great hosts in a gorgeous rustic (but very clean!) environment, this place is for you! We loved Carate and the Lookout so much that we went back for the holidays and had an AMAZING time! You need to see this place to believe it! I can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in "the spa" twice. It's a great room with a terrific view. Open air, yet very private. But from what other guest told us on this last trip, pretty much any room is nice!
