My husband and I spent four nights and had an excellent experience. From the time we arrived, we were treated to attentive, friendly service, delicious cuisine, amazing views from our room and dining area, and interesting excursions. We enjoyed dining "family style" with travelers from all over the US and Europe, sharing stories and swapping travel advice. Our day trips...

This was Mindfulness Travels second retreat at La Paloma Lodge. Our group experience at the Lodge was excellent. The service, excursions, cuisine, attention to the details, and our personal needs, were attended to with warmth and expertise. Our retreat was 7 nights, each day was as great as the previous one. Our guides were experts in knowledge, and the staff...

The food was particularly amazing, and I have been spoiled by a lot of good food, but this was a whole new level!! We swam, snorkeled, rode horses, hiked, watched the...

La Paloma Lodge is a fabulous destination for active adventurers. The accommodations are spacious and spotless, the public areas are lovely, the grounds are beautiful, and the staff are friendly and professional. Like the community of Drake Bay itself, many of the activities are either oriented toward the water or require a boat trip under the guidance of one of...

This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The surroundings in the main lodge space, which is also a dining and gathering area, is like being in the jungle with chairs! It is elegant in its simplicity. There are smooth rock trails throughout the jungle grounds it inhabits that allow you to get from place to...
