I traveled to Costa Rica a few weeks ago to look into a business deal, the deal didn't work out but I was with good people and a great guide so we went exploring. we ended up in the most remote part of the country I've ever been too and I have to tell you. On a suggestion from a lodge owner we stopped for breakfast and info at the Lookout inn, what a find. The views, the wilderness, I felt like for the first time in my life I had found paradise. the grounds of the hotel were spotless, the help was first class the food was good. Why would I suggest this place, Ive been in the service business all my life and if you want a vacation where you are off the grid, no one can bother you, no one puts pressure on you, and you have the rain forest,( one of the top national parks in the world) at your back door, the greenest ocean I've ever seen (50 yards from your front door, and its 90 degrees) beautiful black sand beaches, Wild monkeys that come down from the trees to enjoy fresh fruit while you enjoy the great breakfast, macaws living free all around you, and many other beautiful animals living in the wild. After breakfast which was served to us with a smile on there beautiful deck the guest ambassador brought us map and showed us a beautiful hike where we saw water falls, and more beautiful wild life. The day went from uncertainty to one of my best days in Costa Rica because of the staff of this beautiful lodge .... I haven't met Terry or his wife Katya yet but I hope get get back there soon and stay for more than a day, if they can make a day so wonderful I'm sure a week would be heaven....... Oh as for the title to this review if your in good shape they have a stairway off the back deck called the stairway to heaven I made it to the top and the view is a once in a life time site.. Thanks to all the crew at the Lookout inn See you soon.
