The Lookout Inn Lodge is a beach and rainforest ecolodge in Carate on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. We are located completely off the beaten path and conveniently located near an entrance to the world-renowned Corcovado National Park. Ideally situated to offer comfortable and affordable eco-friendly accommodations to adventure travelers visiting this remote part of Costa Rica, the Lookout Inn Lodge is sure to impress. Nestled in the hillside right above the road and alongside an isolated black sand beach, Lookout Inn Lodge provides our guests with spectacular views of the surrounding jungle rainforest, the majestic Pacific Ocean and an endless unspoiled Osa Peninsula coastline.

Literally the worst experience we had while in Costa Rica. The worst customer service ever. Uncomfortable beds. Overpriced food. These people are clueless as to what hospitality means. Wish we were able to experience the lodge before this horrible management.More

The Lookout Inn has icy cold sodas to enjoy. As others have said, there is really nothing within walking distance. All the food and drink at the Lookout is way above average for each and every meal. We've been 4 times.
