Lapa Rios Eco Resort
Romantic Eco Luxury, Great Service, & Spectacular Wildlife!
Located in the remote Osa Peninsula, Lapa Rios Ecolodge is a true gem among Costa Rica’s eco-resorts, a boutique, eco-sanctuary nestled in the wildest part of the country. Set along 1,000 acres of private reserve in Central America’s largest remaining Pacific lowland tropical rainforest, Lapa Rios is perfect for families, couples, nature lovers, and anyone looking for an enriching and unfiltered stay in the jungle!
Guests will be picked up at Puerto Jimenez airstrip (just 50-minute flight from San Jose) and taken to the lodge for check-in. Lapa Rios consists of 16 open-sided, thatched-roof bungalows, each with netted bed(s), ceiling fan, safe, indoor and outdoor showers, and private deck with lounge chairs and hammock. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate can be delivered (by request) to your bungalow each morning, as early as 5 am.
Dining at Brisa Azul Restaurant is fabulous, and their detail-oriented staff will ensure a pleasurable dining experience each time. Guests have a full, a la carte meal plan for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Menus are extensive and offer an array of local favorites and international dishes. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are plentiful!
In case you still have room for a snack (the portions are really generous!), there are banana bread and coffee for early risers, and chips and dips laid out on the main deck throughout the day. They also offer a fully-stocked bar for afternoon/evening cocktails. Food and beverage service is available by the pool as well.
Explore the jungle trails to various natural surrounding beaches. Some hikes are long, so bring water and repellent. The two beaches in front of Lapa Rios are safe for swimming, and there are surfing lessons available, too. The hotel is committed to environmental protection. It was certified by the Costa Rican Tourism Board with a Level 5 (highest available) CST (Certificate of Sustainable Tourism).
