Vraag offerte aan
Gelegen in de rand van Corcovado National Park, in het zuidwesten van Costa Rica.
Corcovado National Park beslaat ongeveer de helft van het schiereiland Osa. Het park is prachtig: u loopt hier door ruige jungle, en hoort de woeste golven tegen het verderop gelegen strand slaan. De vele bontgekleurde ara-papegaaien spreken tot de verbeelding. Een prachtige wandeling door het Corcovado National Park is een gedenkwaardig onderdeel van uw Costa Rica rondreis. Daarnaast zijn er nog veel meer mogelijkheden; neem hiervoor contact met ons op.
"Amazing jungle eco lodge!"
My experience at Lapa Rios was really wonderful. The lodge is in a beautiful jungle overlooking the Golfo Dulce on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Staff were at the airstrip awaiting my arrival when I got to Puerto Jimenez. After a short break I rode with Jose to the lodge. He pointed out various places and animals/birds along the way. When we arrived at the main lodge I was greeted by Alex who also gave me a brief tour and explained everything about the lodge. All of the staff were amazing and very friendly. They were very helpful in deciding which activities to do (it's very hard to choose from all of them!). The staff are very accommodating as well. I decided I would walk to the beach one day and they were very happy to drive me down there instead. I got more time on the beach and they were happy to do it. All of the hikes were great and the guides are extremely knowledgeable. I was lucky enough to be staying at the lodge when the Osa Conservation had sea turtles hatching. I was able to join a group that was releasing hatchlings. It is one of the off-property activities that you can do and I would highly recommend it. I also went horseback riding and did a dolphin tour. The humpback whales were there, so I was able to see them as well. If you get bored at Lapa Rios, it's your own fault because there is so much to see and do. The food was great as well. I tried just about everything on the menu and it was all very good. I never modified anything, but I noticed that if other guests didn't like an ingredient or had a specialty dietary need, the cook staff was able to alter the meal to their liking. The bungalow was so peaceful and to be sleeping so close to all of the birds, monkeys, and other animals was amazing. I slept better there than I have in years! Where else can you wake up to Howler Monkeys every morning?! Just sitting on the deck drinking coffee in the morning (if I didn't go on an early hike or activity) I saw monkeys, Scarlet Macaws, hummingbirds, lizards, and lots of other birds. The outdoor shower is awesome and refreshing after a hike. I definitely recommend staying at Lapa Rios. It was an amazing experience and the staff were all great!
"One of my favorites!"
I am a travel agent in Costa Rica so I visit a lot of hotels. With that, honestly it can make me have some high expectations when visiting a 5 star hotel. I had visited Lapa Rios a couple years ago and thought the food wasn't worth the price people were paying. However, this year I returned with my boyfriend and I was so incredibly blown away. Everything was perfect.They really worked on improving and they definitely did! Every person knew our names. My boyfriend eats a lot so he made a joke about how the food was great but it was too little. Come dinner time, they gave him 2 steaks without blinking an eye! I have never seen a hotel do that before. Everything we ate was incredible. It wasn't just for us either. They treated everyone like that. For me, it is tied for first place with 2 other hotels for the best in Costa Rica. On a separate note, be sure you are active without injuries if you come here. We were one of the furthest away and had over 200 steps to get to the lobby. It was kind of nice though because we could eat what we wanted without any guilt. ;)
"Very nice Eco lodge in the rainforest "
This place is awesome, and the staff amazing. Staff greeted us @ the airstrip. Took us just across the street to the office, offered us a cold drink. And a chance to stretch, use the restroom. Then they load you in a Range Rover to a exciting 45 minute drive to the Lodge. Upon arriving again staff greet you. We had cabana # 6 and it was beautiful and the view was stunning. Very clean and comfortable! The food was very good. The guides were great, Edwin was our favorite! Wifi available Only in the guide hut, but honestly you should not miss it here. But if you want or need to check in with the world it is available and the guide hut is right next to the main part of the lodge so you are walking right there for your meals and hikes. The pool area is very well maintained and the views are stunning from there. Wildlife are easily seen and heard. I enjoyed the monkeys, birds and other wildlife. Be prepared for all of the steps and walking, remember you are within a rainforest.
"Best anniversary ever"
After 15 years of marriage we needed some excitement. WHOA bring it on in luxury. This place was great (stayed there 9/2009) so awhile ago. Room accomodations were first class even without electricity or AC, Best coffee in the world delivered to your door. We had whales outside our room, a sloth in our tree right off the deck, iguanas in the same tree, scarlet macaws eating nuts in front of our room, and then the hikes! wow. We will never forget and will come back.You WILL wake up early due to the howler monkey schedule :)
"Excellent Trip Made Better By Excellent Service"
Me and my family spent 5 days and 4 nights at Lapa Rios. The view from Bungalow 6 was amazing. When we arrived, there was a small hole on our screen, which we did not report. However, by the end of the first day they had replaced the entire screen perfectly. The outlet in between our beds did not work either, and when I asked Alex at the front desk about it, he quickly arranged for it to be repaired while we enjoyed our dinner. There were no other hiccups the entire time. The front desk staff was phenomenal, Alex and Frank were rock stars. The service and food in the restaurant was great. Kendall always treated us well, and I never got tired of the food. The included tours really gave us a great picture of the area. They even accommodated us when it came to planting a tree on our last day, even though it was not one of the offered tours. The information provided on the tours and wildlife viewing was wonderful. I really found the sunset birds tour with Edwin to be the best. He went above and beyond and helped us to find a sloth even though we were birding. His attitude and eye were excellent. I did enjoy the Matapalo hike with Jose as well. He was charismatic and managed to point out some whales with the scope as well as provide an excellent illustration of Gulfo Dulce.
