5-Day Costa Rica Jungle & Beach Experience

Spend 5 days & nights at the remote Lookout Inn Lodge on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica!
$1750 for 2 guests -- $895 per extra guest


Nestled deep in the tropical rainforest on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, a jungle and beach vacation paradise awaits you. Whether you're looking for adventure or complete relaxation in a remote setting, the Jungle & Beach Experience package tour to Lookout Inn Lodge will certainly provide an amazing Costa Rica vacation.

The Lookout Inn Lodge is an ecolodge that’s next to a black sand beach and nestled hillside in a rainforest canopy. It’s placed well off the beaten path—and that is no exaggeration— in Carate, which is at the extreme end of the road from Puerto Jimenez and is a southern gateway to the famous Corcovado National Park. Part of the adventure is getting here!! We offer comfortable eco-friendly accommodations to the adventure traveler visiting this beautiful part of Costa Rica. Our remote location offers spectacular views of the surrounding tropical rainforest, the majestic Pacific Ocean and an unspoiled Osa Peninsula coastline.

Our 5-day Jungle Package includes:

•    Hiking with guide into the surrounding rainforest & Rio Carate
•    Horseback riding through the rainforest and on a black sand beach
•    Kayaking excursion in a brackish water lagoon
•    Guided hike to the Shady Lane waterfalls
•    All your meals (grown from our gardens or from locals)
•    An open-air style bungalow or a more private (enclosed) room.


Day 1 - Arrive at Lookout Inn Lodge

The two main ways of getting to the lodge are by air or vehicle. If driving (via bus, 4x4 taxi or rental car), you’ll be coming from (or through) Puerto Jimenez; it’s approximately a 2.5-hour drive from Puerto Jimenez to Lookout Inn Lodge, in Carate (drive time depending on road conditions – especially during Green season). If by air, let us know beforehand what time you will be arriving at Carate airport and we will pick you up and transfer to our Lodge.

There are no scheduled events on arrival day. You can walk through Lookout Inn’s tropical garden, visit the frog pond, hike up our legendary “Stairway to Heaven”, check out the surrounding rainforest packed with monkey's, scarlet macaws and many, many other birds and animals, surf or go for a swim in the Pacific Ocean, take a dip in our “Lil Cool” pool, or layout on a secluded black sand beach (which is roughly around 150 feet from your room), or…

Day 2 – Guided Hike in the Rainforest

Did the Scarlet macaws or capuchin monkeys (or squirrel, spider and howler) monkeys wake you up, or was it the sound of the crashing surf? No matter, when you’re up, you’re up and ready to go. Enjoy a guided hike through the jungle rainforest, or if you’d rather do something else, no worries, just let us know and we’ll try and accommodate your wishes.

Day 3 – Kayaking
How about a guided kayaking tour in a brackish water lagoon? Keep a lookout for monkeys, macaws, toucans, frogs, American crocodiles, caimans and perhaps a tapir! Depending on what time you take off, you might see the early morning mist roll over the water or perhaps, watch a big beautiful sunset.

Day 4 – Horseback Riding
Want to ride horses? How about a guided horseback ride through the tropical rainforest, along small river streams and onto an unsoiled black sand beach? Or you can ride to Rio Carate where there’s still gold mining (not included in tour, but available for extra fee – advanced reservations recommended).

Day 5 – Hiking to Waterfall/Rio Oro

Today is your last day so you are free to spend it anyway you wish, but if you have not taken the guided hike up to the Shady Lane waterfall, today is the day. The view of the rainforest from the waterfall is amazing!
