Visitors can walk for miles on secluded beaches, kayak through mangroves, fish, horseback ride, surf and indulge in endless nature hikes. The Corcovado National Park and Lapa Rios Reserve offer an abundance of winding trails through lush rainforest where hikers may be able to catch a glimpse of an endangered wildcat, poison dart frog, three toed sloth and view an abundance of birds and waterfalls. If relaxation is what you're after, come lay by the pool while having a cocktail, receive a massage or join one of the yoga classes.
Lapa Rios was a lodge built with preservation in mind. The owners bought 1,000 acres of precious rain forest to protect it and support the local environment and economy through the eco-lodge. Everything has been built in harmony with its surrounding forest and beach environment. The main lodge and restaurant was constructed using local, natural materials and palm thatched roofs. The Brisa Azul restaurant has a wooden, spiral stairway leading you to an outstanding observatory, allowing for an endless view of the rainforest and ocean. At the fine restaurant, you'll experience a fusion of international flavors, using the freshest produce and local fish.
Built over 350 feet above sea level and connected by walking paths, you'll come upon sixteen thatched roof bungalows. The bungalows are set into the rainforest with a private deck and patio gardens. The screened-in wall windows allow for the cooling breeze to pass through your rainforest sanctuary. The bungalows are designed with warm wood floors, solar heated water, classic bamboo furnishings, and two queen size beds made of bamboo.
