Lapa Rios EcoLodge | Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

If waking up to Howler monkeys in the trees outside your ocean-view bungalow or taking a guided hike thru the rain forest to a waterfall where you can jump in and cool off is not your thing, then read no further!  The Lapa Rios EcoLodge ensures that you will be inspired and forever changed.  At this lodge you can learn all about the Costa Rican culture first hand, eat amazing, fresh meals with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, unwind in your outdoor shower, enjoy a three course waterfall luncheon and watch the stunning Macaws fly by! 

If you are a beach person, there are three amazing beaches to enjoy along with waterfall tours, local medicine tour, starfish walks, guided rainforest tours, wildlife tours and much more! Dining at Lapa Rios in the open air restaurant, Brisa Azul, will possibly be one of the highlights of your stay.  You can expect locally grown, freshly prepared cuisine that is known to be some of the most luxurious in Costa Rica.  You will enjoy fresh fruit, locally caught seafood, organic chicken and grass-fed beef.  There is also a full service bar for all of your cocktail needs as well.

The Lapa Rios sits on 1000 acres of rainforest preserve and offers an awesome pool, 16 luxurious bungalows that are open air, have private decks, rain head showers, awesome hammocks, king and queen beds with organic cotton linens, huge, wonderful bathrooms with two showers, locally made soaps and shampoos, complimentary local coffee, twice a day maid service and evening turn down service with a nice twist!  You will be “off the grid” here, so to speak, as there are no TVs, no internet, no phones, no radios, no A.C. or hair dryers.  At this resort, you will only find harmony and tranquility, something most of us desperately need!
