The Lookout Inn Lodge, Carate
Paradise but pricey meals!
Amazing eco lodge near the end of the road and the beginning of the jungle. The owners are extremely friendly and funny - and the rooms are unique and open air, making for a fun and adventurous experience. This place isn’t for the luxury focused traveler - it takes a bit of effort to get to and there will of course be bugs and critters around. We loved this about it. The secluded beach is one of a kind. Only downside - meals aren’t included and are extremely expensive: $15 for lunch and $25 for dinners. This place isn’t remote enough to warrant those prices, although the dinners were very good. Lunch left something to be desired. Overall, great experience. I think if you book directly with the hotel you might get a better rate and meals included - so look into that! They are pretty responsive by email.
