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.
"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!
"What an Adventure"
Sorry for the late review. We started our 10 day adventure in Costa Rica by staying for four nights at Lapa Rios Ecolodge in the Osa Peninsula in July. I had wanted to come here for many years and I finally convinced my family to go on an adventure to celebrate my birthday. We spent four nights (it was supposed to be five nights, but our airline cancelled the flight and we lost a day due to that). The staff (sorry cannot remember all the names except Fabio the manager) provided great service and were very hospitable and accommodating. We loved our room (#4) since it was very close to the restaurant and reception area. Fabio accommodated our request for a room closer to the main lodge, plus it was the room I wanted due to past great reviews. It provided amazing views of wildlife, ocean views and scenery of primary and secondary forest. Though there is no A/C in the lodge, there were nice cooling breezes in the early morning and evening and well as ceiling fans. The beds were very comfortable and the outdoor shower was refreshing after a vigorous walk. The mosquito net and natural spray repellent worked really well at night, as we hardly got bitten by mosquitos. The early morning wake up call around 430 - 5am by the howler monkeys was hilarious and tolerable. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The all inclusive food was good though it did not change much day to day. We really enjoyed the guided walking tours, expecially the medicinal and early morning bird tours. Be ready to do a lot of walking as there are a lot of steps between the rooms and the main lodge. We encountered at least 30 different animals (all 4 types of monkey's, birds, mammals, reptiles and insects) during our stay and luckily no poisonous snakes crossing our paths (which my wife was worried about). I highly recommend Lapa Rios for those who want to be totally immersed in a pristine jungle and have a peaceful and relaxing vacation.

"Mrs and Mr"
This is the first time we visited an Eco Lodge. First up I would like to warn you of the cost, $US 2200 for 5 days 4 nights. On offer were guided walks, 3 meals a day and a nice cabin in the jungle. I have no comparison as this was our first visit to such an establishment. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the cabin almost luxurious and the guided walks were professional. Despite those plus points our visit was disappointing on two accounts. Firstly I was looking forward to seeing a ferile cat like a Leopard, Puma or Ozelot in the jungle. On arrival I was warned that I must be dreaming. Whilst those cats live in the surrounding jungle the chance of actually seeing one is next to nil. What we did mostly see on our guided tours were birds, birds and more birds. Highlights were Tucans and Macaws. We also saw monkeys and sleeping sloths up the trees. I wanted to report back to my animal loving grand son not only that I had seen a big cat but wanted to show him my photo of one. Secondly the age we live in is the electronic age and the internet. The only place available for internet acces is the meeting point for tour attendants. It is a small open space with barely any seating. It is often crowded by other guests desperate for the internet. We needed to organise forward flights and hotel bookings for the next two weeks and the job turned into a serious problem. I agree with the absence of TVs but the internet is no tool of entertainment but simply one of necessity for the long distance traveler. I don't need my well paid host to teach me what to do and not to do by turning the internet access into a tortuous, punitive arm twister. Unless there is a serious reconsidering on the part of management I will never be back. I don't need my host to ration my wifi usage for my own good. I insist on deciding this issue myself.
