Description

Set in a private nature reserve spread over 1,000 acres of Central America's last remaining lowland tropical rainforest in Costa Rica, Lapa Rios Ecolodge overlooks the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the wild Pacific Ocean, making it an ideal destination for travelers from around the world.

 

Originally, Lapa Rios was built by John and Karen Lewis as a private nature reserve. Today, Lapa Rios contains 16 private, upscale bungalows with a full service restaurant and maintains a conservation easement elaborated by The Nature Conservancy and Cederena to ensure that this private reserve will be preserved into perpetuity.  For the past seventeen years, the privately financed Lapa Rios Ecolodge is more than just a beautiful rainforest hotel or eco resort next to the beach. With almost 60 employees, Lapa Rios is a model ecotourism project that strives to show both its guests, its employees and the surrounding community that “a forest left standing is worth more than one cut down”. 

 

Sixteen spacious suiita-thatch bungalows nestled within the rain forest exude harmony and an immense tranquility in this undisturbed environment. An infinite feeling of freedom lingers in the bungalow's air, while fresh rain forest breezes race in through awesome screened wall windows, forming flawless paintings of the Pacific Ocean. All forest bungalows are private, spacious and open to sea.

 

Enjoy gourmet meals in the middle of a rainforest with a window to the wild. The lodge’s restaurant Brisa Azul specializes in freshly-cooked international cuisine infused with a hint of the tropics and offers breathtaking vistas, in a rainforest experience like none other.

 

In this 1,000 acre reserve you might easily see all 4 species of Costa Rican monkeys: spider, white faced, squirrel and howlers. Other less common animals include agouti, coati mundi, collared and white-lipped peccaries, jaguars, ocelots, margay and puma.

 

For guests that stay at Lapa Rios, a number of activities focused on the rainforest and the nearby ocean, including rainforest hikes, bird watching, ocean kayaking, horseback riding, catch and release sport fishing and surfing, are offered.
