Costa Rica’s pristine Osa Peninsula is blanketed by some of the last remaining lowland tropical rain forest in Central America and edged by beaches rich in marine life. At its tip is Lapa Rios, a remarkable 1,000-acre reserve – paradise for wildlife, nature and beach lovers. The 17 bungalows of Lapa Rios Eco Lodge are built on natural ridges within the rain forest, overlooking the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean.
Built over 350 feet above sea level, this property was designed in harmony with surrounding forest and beaches and was built with locally harvested materials. Much more than a luxurious eco lodge, Lapa Rios is a model ecoturism project and National Geographic Unique Lodge that has won worldwide awards for social and environmental excellence, and is a featured sustainable tourism pioneer. Home to monkeys, macaws, pumas, toucans, tree frogs and thousands of other creatures, a trip to Lapa Rios Eco Lodge will be the trip of a lifetime.
