Description La Carolina Lodge
La Carolina Lodge is a rustic hotel which forms part of a ranch on the eastern slopes of Volcano Tenorio. It is located in a less traveled region of northwestern Costa Rica, amidst sunny jungles and volcanic mountains. In the evenings, the lodge and the cabins are a glow with oil lanterns and candles but Hotel La Carolina Lodge does provide limited lighting and electricity in the main lodge and houses if guests prefer. The hotel sits on a 170 acres property, nestled in the rainforest and fed by a freshwater river. The lodge is also a full-time cattle ranch and farm. Their Costa Rican staff is warm and friendly, and cooks excellent home-cooked meals. Home-style meals are cooked over a wood burning stove or open grill - fresh-squeezed orange juice and lemonade from a private grove of 750 citrus trees and many of the vegetables are hand picked daily from the garden. Their own dairy provides fresh milk and homemade cheese. Meals are "platos tipicos"- prepared from delicious, local Costa Rican recipes-with beef, pork, chicken, fish, beans and rice. Vegetarian meals are available upon request. Nearby, travelers will find the extraordinary Rio Celeste water fall, where you can swim the blue lagoon and simmer in volcanic hot springs. You can also ride through the ranch on horseback, walk through rainforests, meadows and hills, and through fruit groves, macadamia fields and endless green countryside. For sunbathing and swimming there is a wooden deck built over a natural, crescent pool fed by a river. And after a long day of hiking you can relax in a fire-heated tub. Other activities include bird and wildlife watching and you can take day trips to a wildcat refuge, Caño Negro, Volcano Arenal, river rafting and more!
