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.
"A truly memorable experience"
My husband, 5 year old son and I spent 3 nights at Lapa Rios at the end of our Costa Rican journey. We had a wonderful, wonderful time. Everything was incredible - the room (best outdoor shower ever!), the food (which they will modify to meet individual needs), the environment (check out a scarlet macaw while taking that outdoor shower) to beautiful hikes to amazing swimming holes. Every person was pleasant and helpful. We will be back (my husband has never wanted to go back anywhere.)
"Best Ayurvedic Massage!"
Thank you for a lovely stay, we had a great time. The forest walks with Danilo, Jose and the other guides were fabulous as was seeing dolphins with Harry the sailorman and we had the best Ayurvedic massage ever from the amazing "real healing" therapist Rita!
"Spring Break Lapa Rios"
I had high expectations for this place, having seen it listed as one of the best eco lodges in the world. I have to say, we were all a little disappointed. I think the problem was that we visited Pacuare lodge first, which ended up being the highlight of our trip, and then Lapa Rios didn't really compare. When trying to sign up for activities, we got a lot of "no" answers as many of the activities were full or not offered. That was very frustrating. At other lodges, I received an email before I arrived so I could schedule my activities ahead of time. At Lapa Rios, you have sign up when you get there and hope for the best. The accommodations are a bit tired, and even though we had stayed at places with no electricity and open to air, this location was so incredibly hot and humid. It was difficult to be comfortable in or out of our room. We took cold showers frequently and luckily they had a pool. There was no breeze at all when we were there so you are drenched in sweat at all times. It was hard to sleep at night because of the heat. There's a lot of wildlife to see and be careful of the poisonous snakes. One was on the trail leading to our room. We were in Suites 12 and 13 which were so far away and a sweaty hike up to the main lodge. Try to get one of the closer rooms. The food is very good.
"Where the wild things are..."
Right in the rainforest, animals everywhere, beautiful accommodations, amazing gluten free food options (I have celiac disease)- excellent trip. Incredible guides who introduced us to birding and hikes - so knowledgeable about all things plants, birds, insects, animals.
"Back after 22 years."
We came to Costa Rica 22 years ago and fondly remembered our stay at Lapa Rios back then. We were very excited to have the opportunity to return and to spend 5 days hiking the trails,swimming in the waterfall, taking a bird walk and a night walk, spending an afternoon just enjoying our beautiful view of the ocean on our private deck and another afternoon enjoying the beach. We went on almost all of the guided tours, one of them twice, and highly recommend them. We were delighted to find that the place was very much the same as when we first visited. All of the new buildings (i think 3 or 4 more cabinas)were structured like the old ones--basically a thatched roofed luxurious screen house with inside and outside showers. You could actually lie in bed and watch the sun come up over the ocean. Everyone on the staff was very helpful, competent and friendly. We love being in the primary forest and having no TV, no air conditioning and limited WIFI. And we continue to be very impressed with the work of Karen and John Lewis, the founders and owners, who have succeeded in preserving some 940 acres of primary forest, supporting the community through full time employment (the only employer in the area who does so) of only local people, and building a school that they then gave to the community. "Sustainable" describes not only their practices in running the lodge but in caring for both the land and its inhabitants.
