My husband and I just returned from 5 nights at La Paloma Lodge. We had a wonderful time with some wonderful people. Our decision was made by what I had read on TripAdvisor, so I thought it would be good to add some additional thoughts...More

Getting here was a bit of an adventure itself. The hike up the hill from the boat dock was somewhat intense, perhaps because we were not expecting it. Staff did make golf carts available in subsequent trips and a few of us did take advantage...More

First, you board a small boat at a muddy beach. Next, you take a short ride into a canal that reminded me of something out of "Apocalypse Now". Then, you take a 1/4 mile hike up a fairly steep grade. Finally, you're at the lodge....More

January, 2014 I re-visited La Paloma Lodge in later 2013 for my fourth time. Again, I experienced La Paloma's attentively polite staff, spectacular ocean views, flavorful meals, tastefully designed ranchos, and pleasant atmosphere. With staff and lodgings as a comfortable backdrop, I was able to...More

It's always a pleasure when we have you visit! Aside from the trap door spiders, one of things I love most about the Bug Lady is that there is always something different to see on the tour. We look forward to seeing you again. Jess

I wouldn't advise it. Too many potential hazards for such young children. Come here when they are older.
