Only to describe LA Carolina lodge in a few words: it's unbelievable and really awesome!!

The guys are soo friendly and it was the best place in Costa Rica! That is Pura vida.:-)
It is absolutely recommended and if you like you can go to the Rio Celeste or a beautiful horseriding.
Also you have a Yakuzi and the nature pool is awesome. :-)
You will absolutely enjoy it when you loves the nature and silence :-)

Excellent place to visit. We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed the place. Very good food and lovely lodge. Worth a stay of several days. The family owner is very nice and very opened to help
It is a magical place where nothing should change...

we stayed at Carolina lodge for 3 days and we were sad to leave. it is an amazing place in the middle of the jungle. there's is very good service and the houses are beautiful. event though it rained alot, because we went there in the rainy season, we still had a wonderfull time there. there is alot to do, from horseback riding through the jungle, to relaxing in the hot tub. we highly recommend the place.

We stayed at Carolina for two nights at the end of our vacation. We found ourselves wishing that we had more time, and that we had brought our kids to experience this wonderful farm. We stayed in the Toucan cabin which was right along the river. I found the rush of the water to be very relaxing, although my wife felt it was kind of a loud drone. Our cabin was indeed rustic, but very clean. We relaxed in the wood fired hot tub in the back of our cabin. Very nice! The food at the farm was amazing! Simple, all natural, and very tasty. We looked forward to our three meals per day. Our foodie kids would have loved this. No English was spoken on the farm, but somehow, we got by. It became a challenge to learn what it was that they were cooking because it all tasted so great! Alejandro was an excellent tour guide of our trip to Rio Celeste. He also took us horse back riding on the farm, and did an excellent job with two newbies. And all of the kitchen staff were really nice people! We would return here some day in the future. A wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Toucan is close to the water, and that can be loud for some or relaxing for others.

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay at La Carolina more. This place is truly excellent. My wife and I stayed in the cabin with the private hot tub and it was incredibly relaxing and peaceful. The three meals everyday were delicious and we enjoyed the different juices. All the staff and the owners were fantastic and super helpful. We would love to go back!
