Over Lapa Rios Eco Lodge
- rust en natuur
- stijl en design
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.
"Words alone cannot do Lapa Rios justice"
Words like amazing, incredible, fantastic, unbelievable, trip readily off the tongue. The Eco-Lodge at Lapa Rios is a true experience, where the lodge offers luxury running alongside life in a tropical rainforest. You realise that you are in the forest as the Howler monkeys, Scarlet Macaws and Toucans wake you at dawn. The Osa peninsula is one of the last remaining areas of rainforest in Costa Rica and the Corcovado National Park covers much of the land, but rather than carving away the forest the forward-thinking staff of Lapa Rios have undertaken to re-establish the forest - planting to extend back over farmland - returning the land to what it once was. Wildlife is the major draw of the lodge and early morning and late afternoon guided birding excursions, alongside longer treks in the forest are included in the package. Although referred to as birding excursions the chances of seeing any or all of the 4 monkeys are very high, as is seeing sloths hanging about. Add to this peccary, agouti, iguana and various snakes and spiders it is the whole wildlife deal. The lodge has a 20metre high birding platform above the restaurant - bats made be found up there ! 3 meals a day, each of high quality preparation and presentation, along with snacks should you need sustenance in between or a quick cocktail at the bar. The lodge has a pool with its own attendant life-guard in George the Iguana, but it is not far to the shores of the Pacific where it is possible to swim, learn surfing or paddle boarding. The staff from the moment you are picked up in Puerto Jimenez were all fantastic, so friendly and attentive. It would be inappropriate to list the stars because they were all stars. The attention to detail is amazing, for example, returning from a hot and sweaty trek in the forest, you would be greeted with a cold towel and glass of juice as you returned. A well practiced team working in harmony. And harmony with their surroundings is important to this Eco-lodge,and the Green practices are impressive - through recycling, solar power, food propagation, all contribute to minimising their carbon footprint - very impressive indeed. A truly unbelievable experience.
"incredible lodge and amazing food - top guides to visit the rainforest"
i spent 4 lovely nights in a beautiful bungalow with all confort with a magnificent view on Pacific Ocean. The restaurant was amazing : you have to choose for every meal between 5 starters, 5 main courses and 5 desserts for lunch and dinner. Breakfast has also a lot of choices with many fresh juices, different recipes for eggs, fruits.. I even gave my email to the chef to get the recipe of the green gaspacho and it's the 1st time in my life i request such favor. The guides were also amazing and can spot even the tiny poisonous frogs or birds you can see without their help and knowledge. I made very beautiful pictures of wildlife. Wifi was good and i had a very good time. I left such paradise for a lodge in Golfit which was looking good on their website but was finally very disappointing and i will also review that unacceptable lodge later on.
"Upscale Eco Lodge"
Wonderful Experience! All staff were wonderful, friendly, and helpful from greeting to departure. Gourmet food 3 times a day with snacks if you needed them. Surrounded by a beautiful protected rainforest. Plenty of hikes and activities provided by the Lodge to keep you busy. Thank you Jeffrey for the extra effort in helping us spot a sloth!
"Luxury in nature"
WOW!!! Unbelievable experience. From the moment you arrive in Puerto Jimenez the gracious staff take over and guide you through your journey. Frank, an extremely courteous and knowledgeable driver picked us up from the office at the airport, made stops along the 45 minute ride to view wildlife and give us preliminary information about the lodge. Were greeted at the front entrance by our personal concierge Darien with cool towels and cold drinks. Darien guided us through the check in process, got us into our bungalow #8, breathtaking view, jawdropping beautiful room, again WOW, and took care of us well throughout out our stay and dealing with the one issue we had!! The meals were included and amazing, our waiter Elier we had most meals greeted us by name every time he saw us whether he was serving us or not, inquired if we needed anything and was just a pleasure. Karol, a waitress served us often as well with an infectious laugh and smiles always so happy and a joy to have had her take care of us. Roybin the bartender was quick, courteous and easy to talk to when we visited him at the rail for drinks. Took several guided nature hikes with Jeffrey, saw too many birds and other wildlife to even attempt to list, very informative, awesome experiences. Alex the manager ultimately stepped in between the lodge and the travel company and fixed the problem we had, alleviated the issue and arranged for a special private romantic dinner our last night on the pool deck as compensation for our trouble, wasn't needed or expected but greatly appreciated, Vilma our private waitress for the night was amazing, took care of our every need, with a smile and a giggle that made us appreciate the night even more. Costa Rica was the 84th country I have visited and Lapa Rios is in my top 3 favorite resorts!! Amazing, awesome and unbelievable, most highly recommend!!
"Nature at its best"
We only came to this Ecolodge because our originally booked accommodation had construction delays but we were so pleased with the change. It is expensive but worth it for the nature tours (and all inclusive meals).The tour guides were very well informed and spotted birds and other wild life that we completely missed. Being woken at 4am by several howler monkeys above our bungalow is an experience we will never forget. There are no TVs in the rooms and WiFi is a bit hit and miss in just one designated spot so you can concentrate on the wonderful surroundings. We were a bit surprised that the staff were indifferent when one of the resident iguanas decided to poop by the poolside but otherwise they were attentive to our every need. Some previous reviews have mentioned the steps to some bungalows and this could be a big issue for those less agile. We were lucky being placed in Room 2 which involved no steps at all to Reception but we would have been very disappointed had we been placed in some of the high number rooms
