What to expect at Lookout Inn Lodge – Costa Rica
Where in Costa Rica is Lookout Inn Lodge?
Our rainforest hotel is in Carate, Puntarenas, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica – about 220 miles southwest of San Jose. Carate, a primary entry point to the world renowned Corcovado National Park, is at the end of the road approximately one and a half hour ride by car or 7 minutes by air charter from the town of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula. See Lookout Inn on Google Maps by clicking here.
When you arrive in Carate, you are in one of the most remote regions in Costa Rica. The natural beauty of this area is beyond words, with lush ridges and forest trees full of monkeys and scarlet macaws. In fact, this area of the Osa Peninsula has the highest concentration of breeding scarlet macaws in the world!
The "Peninsula de Osa" is considered one of the most bio-diverse places on hearth and home to the famous Corcovado National Park, which contains approximately 3/5's of the peninsula's land mass. This is the largest remaining protected tract of Pacific Coast rainforest left in the Western Hemisphere!
Sights and sounds of the rainforest
When you choose the remote Lookout Inn Lodge for your Costa Rica rainforest vacation, you will be in for a treat. Upon waking in the morning, you are instantly greeted with a grand symphony of the rainforest jungle, as well as sounds of ocean waves hitting the beach. As guests of the Costa Rican tropical rainforest, you will be in awe of the abundant variety of wildlife, birds and plant life all around you. See just a few examples in our wildlife photo gallery if you haven't all ready. Here is a small taste of what to expect during your rainforest vacation at the Lookout Inn Lodge in Costa Rica:
You like colorful birds?
- Great! The Costa Rica Osa Peninsula region is home to over 400 species of birds. We have plenty of Scarlet Macaws, Toucans and other tropical birds. See our bird list here.
Are you a shutterbug?
- Perfect! On your rainforest vacation at Lookout Inn, you’ll want to keep your camera close at hand as to not miss all the action around you. Capture images of white-faced capuchin monkeys swinging by and flying overhead—yes, the monkeys look like they are flying as they jump from tree to tree—or get down real low and photograph a teeny-tiny poison dart frog.
Interested in endangered animals?
- Thank you! Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula is home to many endangered animals and we’re thankful you’re aware of their endangered status. Watch an endangered tapir walk in the distance or a Geoffroy’s spider monkey chatter away in a branch just feet away from your tree house room. Maybe you’ll spot an ocelot, puma or the rarely seen jaguar. Learn about all about these animals, or even better, please help us save them. Ask us about our Save the Sea Turtles volunteer program that takes place every green season at Lookout Inn Lodge. Volunteers get extremely discounted rates!
