Protecting 1,000 acres of Central America’s last tropical lowland rainforest, it’s safe to say that Lapa Rios Lodge is one of the most sustainable lodges in our portfolio. Tucked away on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, everywhere you turn you’ll be met with exotic flora and views of the sparkling Golfo Dulce.
Translated to ‘river of scarlet macaws’ in English, the lodge was named after the unsurpassable sight the lodge’s founders were greeted with when they first arrived – an amazing view of macaws flying across the rainforest and creating a river of red. They can almost guarantee that you’ll see one of these vibrant birds during your stay, as well as the opportunity to encounter endangered monkeys and over 300 more bird species.
There are just 17 bungalows, creating a sense of exclusivity and seclusion. Most are Rainforest Bungalows, with see-through screens that look out across the rainforest and give the illusion of being in an open-air retreat. There are also Premier Lapa Suites, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a living room, or the rustic-luxe Lapa Ocean Villas boasting a wraparound veranda with a plunge pool and day bed. All the bungalows are designed to give you an amazing experience of bringing the outdoors in, and they have stunning views of the sunrise, too.
Lapa Rios immerses you in this luscious, untouched rainforest, offering splendid hikes, bird watching and sustainability tours. The food is locally sourced and organic too, and you can even enjoy a three-course lunch right by a waterfall.
We really love this eco-lodge, and we think it offers a sensational experience that everyone should enjoy at least once.
