La Leona Eco Lodge, Carate
Rustic jungle ocean front lodging
Basic, non-electrified rustic tent cabins, perched above continual crashing ocean surf. Bugs were almost non existent except at night. Bug screens around tent did a good job except they also stopped any breezes. Our tent had an ensuite outdoor toliet and cold water shower. If sleeping at 90 degrees with 90% humidity, without a fan or ac, is okay for you, then you'll sleep well. Breakfast was included, but lunches at $20 pp and diners at $25 pp are extra. Food quality and quanity basic. Was expecting a better experience based on their website, unfortunately that didn't occur, although I must add the tours I booked there were excellent, but not included in basic price, and the entire facility staff was friendly and attentive to your needs. For $230 a night (including dinner and lunch) the stay didn't justify the price.

A very special place
You are in a remote lodge where you hike in for 45 min to 3 hours depending on how many animals( monkeys, anteaters, scarlet macaws) you stop to watch. A horse cart brings in your luggage. There is no air conditioning, hot water or wifi but the food is fantastic and the smoothies delicious. There several activities available including a tour of Corcavado NP, night hikes and turtle hikes in season. If you can't stand the heat and humidity don't go. If you like being in a special place and seeing a wide range of animals and plants then this is where you need to visit.
