Pure Costa Rica!
Total Off the Grid Experience.
La Carolina Lodge is the perfect place for both nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Overlooking a fresh water river and immersed in lush tropical forests we offer the perfect Costa Rica getaway experience for our guests to enjoy.
Our cabins are designed to create a unique “off the grid experience”. Nestled on the eastern slopes of Volcano Tenorio, our accommodations are surrounded by magical scenic views. Our guests can enjoy a refreshing swim in our crystal clear river, relax in our one-of-a-kind wood-fired hot tub, sun on the deck, walk through our lush tropical forest, bird watch while sitting in comfort on the veranda, horse ride through our meadows, milk cows, and so much more.
Bird watch while sitting in comfort on the veranda.
On site Costa Rican wildlife includes a vast array of birds, including toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, Montezuma Oropendola and many more. Their daily visits to our feeders are sure to delight both the advanced and novice bird watchers.
For the more adventurous type, the River Float & Rafting tours on the nearby Rio Corobici river will get the heart going. There is also nearby breath taking Rio Celeste waterfall, located in National Park Volcano Tenorio. Or why not take a day trip to the spectacular Arenal Volcano where you can experience canopy tours, hot springs and hikes to a spectacular waterfall.
The colourful frogs and butterflies, including the giant Morpho, are a sight to behold. A stroll around our property will bring you into contact with many bromeliads, wild orchids and other flora. Tropical mammals include monkeys, sloths and more.
