Our room , "Puma" , was opened to the elements and jungle, a mosquito net protected us from the bug when in our bed. No Alarm clock required, awoken by the dawn chorus! The Inn had fantastic views over the roadside vegetation, the beach and the roaring waves of the Pacific Ocean. It was easy to walk around with hardly another soul to be seen. All meals were communal sitting and at set times. The chef produce excellent meals, and Terry the owner was a wizard with the BBQ, the pulled pork exceptional. the staff were courteous,friendly,and helpful. Special of Andy,waiter/barman took pride in his job.
again many thanks for visiting us here at the famoo]us lookout inn dont forget we have a cute lil boutique hotel in puerto jimenenz -- thanks so much the wizard
My family and I came to Corcovado to see animals in their natural habitat.
This is why we chose to stay at the Lookout Inn. For us, it was the perfect balance of comfort and deep-jungle exploration.
While staying here we saw more animals than we ever expected, and we were able to observe jungle wildlife from an amazingly close range.
Within walking distance of our room we saw:
Squirrel Monkeys, White Face Capuchin Monkeys, Spider Monkeys and Howler Monkeys, Coatis, Scarlet Macaws, Hawks, Owls, Caracaras, and numerous species of Tree-frogs, enormous cane-toads, Green Iguanas, Black Iguanas, a pair of Caiman and even an Ant-eater.
I know some people don't like snakes. We never saw a snake at the Inn, so if you don't like snakes, you will feel safe and comfortable here.
But if you DO like snakes, as I do, you'll be happy to know that I was able to spot beautiful Cat-Eye Snakes and a rare Parrot Snake while hiking nearby.
Terry, the owner of the Inn, told me that large boas are also sometimes seen.
Terry and his lovely wife, Katya, run the place with a warm and attentive Family-vibe.
They personally prepare every breakfast, lunch and dinner for their guests, and meals are served around a large table so that everyone can have the opportunity to know each other. They take a true interest in making you feel welcome and comfortable, and
the food is delicious.
If you want to relax, the beach is only a few steps away. There's also a pool, numerous hammocks, and a bar that serves delicious smoothies and ice-cold Imperial Beer, which is pretty nice after a day of jungle hiking.
If you want to see amazing wildlife and get deep in the jungle while maintaining the basic comforts of a clean bed, good food, friendly faces and a nice, cold drink, then this is the place to be.

My one and only complaint about the lookout inn is that Terry has absolutely ruined any other hotels chances of ever impressing me. It's hard to even call it a hotel, there's more powerful forces at work here than a comfortable bed and a good meal. The geographical features of the property are astonishing, it's literally a mountain, a jungle, and a beach all in one. Now a sandwich is only as good as what's inside so if the mountain/jungle/beach is the bread, then the monkeys/macaws/tapir(if your lucky.... He's not on payroll) are the juicy lunch meats. When we checked in there was a whole gang of capuchins hanging out in the lounge area, we saw all four species of monkeys within a quarter mile of the premise. The property is quite literally breathtaking, trying to put it into words is useless. Now on to the hospitality... Again, flawless. Dinner was too good, both myself and my friend felt as if we damaged our stomaches we ate so much, amazing food served at three different locations, one for breakfast, one for lunch, one for dinner. It doesn't take a lot of perception to tell that massive amounts of passion were put into the creation of this masterpiece, it's a work of art. Terry, your an absolute legend my man and I will never forget the little bit of time I spent in the reality you created down there huge thanks to you and you wife for having us. I'm coming back to CR, and I'm gna come work for you haha so don't forget about us! One last note I did say mountain so if you chunky dunk in stead of skinny dip this may not be the pool for you!
