I went to Costa Rica to remodel a vacation home belonging to my employer. After 10 days of living in "the rough" I headed up the mountain to check out reports of a "local" hotel. It was the Paraiso Carlisa, not exactly a local hotel! It's more like a slice of heaven. It is an amazing place. I decided to indulge myself and asked for the best room available. I was led down a short paved driveway to a bungalow (the size of a small house) in the forest only 40 yards from the main lodge yet it was secluded, private, and felt as though I was deep into the rain forest. I could stay for only 2 nights and immediately made plans to return. I returned later that year in August. I invited local friends to join me for my vacation and the staff treated all of them like royalty. While there, the owners arrived from Spain and decided to throw a party for us. Dinner and dancing for everyone. We rode to the falls on horseback led by the owner himself, a delightful person. If I had spent a million dollars on a vacation I could not have had a better time than I did here. The Paraiso Carlisa is a real quaint and romantic hideaway, a place to relax and reflect, to be pampered, and sample "the good life".
