1.47km from Carribian FlavorStayed three nights at the lovely Atlantida Lodge just outside of Cahuita. Our simple, well maintained room, was cooled by fans, and was quiet and peaceful. The lodge is right across the street from an uncrowded beach - complete with a tree containing a sloth! A number of restaurants are within easy walking distance, as is the town of Cahuita and the amazing Cahuita National Park. ($5 admission) A large Sloth Sanctuary is a short drive north of the city, and well worth a visit. The well maintained pool was a delightful place to relax after hiking or touring. There is also an open air sitting area off of reception, with WiFi connection, and a large collection of National Geographic magazines. An open air, on sight restaurant serves a substantial buffet breakfast with expertly, individually prepared eggs, and is continually open for lunch, dinner, and drinks. Food, including pizza, was well prepared, delicious, and reasonably priced. Bar service is available in the restaurant, and in an additional attached area facing the ocean. Filtered water for your water bottle is available for no additional charge at the bar. The entire staff at both the restaurant and the lodge were always cheerful and friendly, and ever so helpful in addressing any issue that occurred. The staff arranged an English speaking taxi driver, Patrick, from Jamaica, to help us find the village post office. When leaf cutter ants suddenly materialized on our walkway, the area was sprayed within 10 minutes. A plumbing issue was also addressed within 10 minutes! Ask, and they take care of you! For animal lovers, there is a parrot and two well mannered dogs that visit the lodge with their staff owners. We can’t say enough about the friendly and efficient service provided by each staff member. A safe is available in reception. (Note: bring your own shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and rain gear. This is the more rainy side of the country.) If you want to get away from the craziness of the world, meet people from all over the world, don’t mind an occasional rain shower, and appreciate the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, this is a lovely destination.
