Interaction with Guests
Paradise Lodge BB is a family owned and managed by American transplants of Southern California. Jim and Carol fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to stay. Jim is a magician, a long time standing member of the Magic Castle of Hollywood. So be prepared to see a bit magic while you’re here. Carol a native Californian yet fluent in Spanish can be an aid to you for anything you might need while you stay in Paradise Lodge BB.
We had some difficulty with the directions we received but once we contacted Carol and James they drove right out to meet us and show us the way. The home is very clean and spacious and the view of the jungle is spectacular. We took a walk down to the river and saw howler monkeys, green parrots and a wide variety of other birds. Carol provided us with a delicious authentic breakfast each day which included toast, scrambled eggs, sausage or ham, juice, a wide assortment of fruits, and a special filling for a tortilla, the name of which escapes me. It was wonderful! Carol and James were both very friendly and helpful to us. They can book just about any tour you would like to take in the area. We did an ATV tour (which I would not recommend) and the Sky Adventure Tram and Zip Line tour (which we thoroughly enjoyed). It's about a 35 minute drive from the home to downtown La Fortuna(a short distance of which is on a rather rough dirt road) but the home and hosts were so nice that we didn't mind the extra travel time. We learned from sad experience that two days is not nearly enough time to enjoy this beautiful area.
