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.
"Well worth a visit ! "
This place was booked for us by our travel agent in the UK. It is a little remote. We flew to Golfito airport and had a short taxi ride to a marina then a boat ride to get picked up by a hotel employee to take us by car to the hotel. On the way she stopped to point out some owls and then a lovely beach and a third time time to show us some howler monkeys. We also spotted a toucan at that time which we were really excited about: little did we know that we would have many more chances to see toucans up close! The hotel is at the tip of a peninsula . A really beautiful environment. Our room was a little way from the reception/bar/dining area. But it was well worth the walk! We had a gorgeous room and a totally private outdoor balcony with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Plus there was a sloth resident in one of the trees outside! And toucans came to visit every morning. Monkeys( spider and capuchin) also got up close, and we got an alarm call from the howler monkeys every morning. The rooms are lovely but donâ€™t expect television( you wonâ€™t miss it!), kettle, fridge, hairdryer, etc. There are plenty of things to watch from the balcony or from the veranda off the main dining area. There is coffee available from 05.45 in the main area or you can order some to be delivered to your room. I would suggest that you bring your own hiking boots/shoes to take full advantage of all the guided tours on offer. We were not informed of this and the hotel did supply us with wellingtons but they were a little ill fitting so we would have been more comfortable with our own footwear. Also bring a good torch. It gets really dark early; about 17.45, and getting back to your room can be difficult. The path is lit but not brightly! The staff are absolutely brilliant. There is nothing to fault about anyone. Super friendly and ever helpful. The food is really good. A set menu but sufficient choice. I recommend the rib eye steak. Or the fish of the day. We had room 9 which was the only one with a resident sloth! Longest distance from reception but well worth it!!! I hope that this is helpful. This is an excellent place to stay if you want to see birds/wildlife. I really recommend it.
What can we say? We just had the best week here. Everything was perfect! We had the pleasure of interacting with so many of the wonderful staff. We did many of the hikes on property, which were all amazing in their own way with fantastic guides and it goes without saying we saw tons of wildlife. The lodge arranged an excursion where we were able to release sea turtles into the ocean...an amazing experience! Our room was gorgeous with fantastic views and we loved the outdoor shower. There is honestly not enough ways to compliment this place...if you are thinking of going here, do not hesitate the slightest bit. It will be an incredible experience. A slight aside in terms of planning: if you are going to take a domestic flight to get to Lapa Rios make sure you break your journey with a night in San Jose at the start and end of your trip so you do not miss your international flight back. Our domestic flight ended up being over 2 hours late and we missed our international flight home which was not ideal.
"BEST PLACE EVER."
My mom (age 73) and I visited Lapa Rios this past July, and it was truly spectacular. The Ecolodge is super well designed and beautiful, the food is delicious, the hikes gorgeous, the guides amazing, and the entire staff is REALLY truly special. Was hoping for a great trip, but this exceeded our expectations in every way. Costa Rica a great place to visit (I had been once before), and this place is the BEST. Thank you, Lapa Rios, for everything! I hope I get to return someday.
We are freshly back home (Florida) and back in the "rat race". Already daydreaming about our next trip to paradise and longing for the adventure that was. I had read many many reviews and did my homework before making my decision on where to stay in the Osa. If you're like me and need to do your research before committing you can officially stop now. Just imagine there is no where else to stay bc nothing could possibly match the experience we had at Lapa rios. The staff (a few shout outs to Karol, Elier and Arbid) was perfect, accommodating and friendly. If you don't make friendships with these people it's you, not them. Neither of us spoke much Spanish but we tried and asked constantly "como se dice" ("how do you say") to just about everything! And they loved that we tried (or at least they made it seem that way :). So please try and speak Spanish, it's respectful and helps break a barrier. The view! Oh my god the view! Our back deck over looked the pacific, where you could watch the surfers ride the long waves or the squirrel monkeys leaping from tree to tree, the Scarlett macaws squawking in the trees above or the toucans sitting gracefully 10 feet away. I could go on, and on and on. Tours: do them. So informative, adventurous and almost always a good workout! After each tour you were greeted with a refreshing drink, fruit or delicious ginger cookies. The food: I noticed not much was mentioned in previous reviews about the food and that was discouraging bc they should have. It was fabulous and there was plenty to choose from. Sustainability: if you're into eating organic, not using plastics, composting and being good to the environment THIS is the place for you. And if you're not THIS is the place for you. Learn and become part of the solution. I could go on, but I'll save that for my next visit, and the one after that and the one after that.... Thank you Lapa Rios! We miss you already.
"If you've only got 1 night left on earth, spend it here!"
The most amazing experience, from the transfer by boat to the unforgettable cabins to the breathtaking ocean view, simply unique. This rainforest location is excellent for spending time exploring the flora and fauna guided the hotels very knowledgeable and friendly staff. In addition to the walks and hikes there are a range of activities that are located close by, the horse riding and kayaking in the mangroves were both excellent. The rooms, and the views from them, were superb with their net sided walls creating a real sense of connection with the rainforest. The outdoor showers were a bathing experience not to be forgotten. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and professional. The pride of the staff in working here was palpable and translated into an exceptional customer experience. Even our children enjoyed not having connectivity, a real bonus as they reconnected with nature. Stay here if you can!
