Given the highest rating for sustainable tourism by the Costa Rica Tourism Board, El Remanso provides the opportunity to experience a uniquely biologically diverse jungle while being treated to personalized service from the local staff, quality meals each day, and charming accommodations that blend in with the natural setting.
The property around El Remanso can be explored through an extensive trail system. Guests can enjoy spotting the forest animals, visiting waterfalls and creeks, or walking on the beach with tide pools and a lagoon. The El Remanso guides can take you waterfall repelling, early morning bird watching, on nature hikes, or on a canopy tour. Or, just appreciate the exotic birds and monkeys from the deck of your private cabin.
There are many exciting outdoor adventures outside of the lodge property. Dolphin watching in the Golfo Dulce, horseback riding through the forest or on the beach, surfing at Matapalo, or hiking through Corcovado National Park are available for guests.
El Remanso is comprised of 13 units of cabins, suites, and rooms that can hold up to 30 guests. The small-scale of the lodge allows for specially tailored service to meet your desires. El Remanso offers a chemical free pool, the poolside bar Los Encantitos, and a restaurant. The restaurant cuisine mixes international food with a local touch in the three meals served every day on the open-air deck built on the top of a forest canyon. Early morning coffee, an exchange library, the mirador lounge area, and the weekly talks of conservation issues by local biologists are all part of El Remanso’s restaurant.
