Lookout Inn was all we thought it would be.Terry, Katya & Staff made it perfect! Terry answered all of my many questions I had before booking the trip and he is a most gracious host.
It is worth the time it takes to get there. We stayed in the Monkey House and it is a very romantic setting! We had fresh flowers in our room and I loved the netting around the bed.It does require 48 steps to get to it, but well worth it. You definitely get in shape staying there. I loved listening to the macaw's and the ocean every night and waking up to the sound.There are no bugs, only Halloween crabs that come out at night and head to the beach so wear closed toed shoes if you head to the beach at night! The monkeys came 3 times during our stay and did not come into our house, they just jumped from the roof to the trees ! It was AWESOME!
Laying in the hammocks in our house we saw a toucan, monkeys, lizards, coati and other birds I cannot name .The flora & fauna are spectacular also , Terry did a great job of transforming Lookout Inn into a paradise.I took over 500 pics while staying there.
We hiked to area waterfalls and they gave us a map as we did not want a guide. We walked on the beach a lot and for the 7 days we were there only saw people on the beach twice! I think for the most part the guests were like us and wanted privacy. They were a very diverse group and we enjoyed the family style meals and talking about our daily adventures.
I highly recommend Lookout Inn if you are looking for solitude, watching birds & animals, hiking, great scenery and wonderful food!
