Encanta La Vida

Encanta La Vida is a lodge on the border between the beach and the jungle, in one of the loveliest parts of the Osa Peninsula. This is an off-the-grid accommodation, so be prepared to unplug as you unwind.

Encanta La Vida

Cabo Matapalo

With over 700 species of tree and over 800 species of bird, this part of the peninsula makes for an incredible hike. It takes just a short walk to reach the Cabo Matapalo beach, which has challenging waves for good surfers. There are three surfing beaches within walking distance of the lodge, and Pan Dulce is considered the best for surfers who are still mastering their technique. On a boating tour, you can reach the Isla de Caño, which is surrounded by thriving coral reefs and is one of Costa Rica’s premier scuba diving destinations. Corcovado National Park is the Osa Peninsula's main attraction and has incredible walking trails through one of the most biodiverse places in the world. The La Leona ranger station is the closest park entrance to the lodge.

Encanta La Vida encourages you to live your best life with a spa and a yoga deck that looks out over the Golfo Dulce. Go for a refreshing swim in the on-site pool to cool off after a long day of hiking. You can see lots of wildlife in the area — look up to observe the howler monkey and scarlet macaws in the trees. Tapirs, agoutis, and collared peccaries are known to wander the grounds as well.

Each day of your stay includes three square meals. The chef is happy to accommodate health-conscious guests. Dinner is an elaborate, three-course meal that comes with freshly baked bread.

Every villa has a spacious porch, equipped with comfy lounge furniture including hammocks. Furnishings are simple, keeping the guest rooms airy and modern. Although the accommodations are basic, you’ll have reading lights as well as fans, and mosquito netting hangs over the beds. All of the suites and villas come with private bathrooms that supply guests with hot water. Your laundry will stay fresh thanks to the lodge’s laundry service.
