Las Caletas is a rustic, removed from the beaten path, lodge. If you want someone to being standing at your elbow, wiping your chin after every bite, go pay for it at some ultra expensive resort. If you want either a quiet and relaxing or adventurous, yet outstanding, quality experience, this is the place. Great food + fantastic setting, for...

This place is fantastic. I say this after we changed from our room to one of the spacious platform tents which zip all the way to keep out bugs. They're very private and have good ventilation with lots of screens and a very comfortable queen size bed. There's a short walk to a very clean bathroom with shower which is...

Las Caletas was a perfect choice for our honeymoon. It was just the right combination of 'roughing it' (geckos on the walls of our room!), and luxury (fantastic food, unbelievably beautiful location). Our guide, Jose, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Jolanda and David, the owners, were able to hook us up with any number of activities: horseback riding, night hikes to...

This means alot, as I've never posted a travel review before, however, I feel we had such a great experience I want to return the favor and...

We had a wonderful stay at Las Caletas. At times it was hard to imagine we were at an ecolodge. The cabinas were clean and comfortable. The gourmet meals were outstanding. The professional, caring staff headed by owners David and Jolanda were supreme. We spent an afternoon on the beach. On day 2 decided to hike along the beach to...

July is kind of down month here. I think everyone is burnt out on dealing with the touristas. In particular, I don't think that the owner of the Lodge is fond of Americans. We were misquoted a price on a fishing charter and ended up paying a higher price than we were told by the owner. Although the fishing guide,...

If you want to see plenty of marine life and wildlife then this is the place to visit. From the dining area you can see Iguanas, monkeys, Macaws, and many other birds and mammals. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the native flora and fauna and he was very friendly. David who co-owns and runs the place is fluent...

We just returned from 10 days at Las Caletas, and had a very memorable time. We chose the lodge because of the very positive ratings on tripadvisor, and largely agree with the other reviewers. David, one of the owners, is a very hospitable and accommodating host. (Jolanda was away during our stay, so we did not meet her, but she...

Las Caletas was the first stop on our 12 day Costa Rica trip and was by far the best experience! We wanted to be a little adventurous so we stayed in one of the tents. These tents are not advertised on the website but they are great! What you lack in privacy (you are in a tent close to the...

We stayed at Las Caletas with 7 adults , 3 children the youngest was 21 months. What an amazing place with great people. The guides were great , the staff was fun and we found this to be a very family friendly atmosphere. The wildlife is better than anywhere we've found. This is an outdoor experience so those looking for...
