This lodge contributes to local organizations that promote education for local youngsters, as well as the Corcovado Foundation. The lodge also supplies guests with eco-friendly products.
Transportation to La Paloma Lodge consists of a taxi ride to the river, and then a boat taxi to the hotel. Corcovado National Park has a greater variety of species than anywhere else on Earth. This park covers a vast 100,000-acre (40,468-ha) swath of rainforest. Take unforgettable treks into the jungle, and visit Drake Bay to embark on tours of the coast. Your stay at the lodge includes a guided hike to San Pedrillo Ranger Station and a trip to Caño Island. On hikes to San Pedrillo, you can expect to see glorious waterfalls. In the area surrounding Caño Island, you can sometimes spot humpback whales or dolphins. The area surrounding the island is known for its clear water and fantastic visibility for snorkeling, and the island has pristine beaches where you can take rejuvenating breaks.
Accommodations here come with sumptuous views. From the floor-to-ceiling windows, you’ll be treated to a view of the Pacific Ocean, as well as the frenzied activity of surrounding monkeys and birds. You can choose from private bungalows, called “ranchos,” or regular rooms. La Paloma Lodge also added a 3-bedroom luxury beach house.

Bathrooms have hair dryers, as well as biodegradable shampoo and conditioner. Keep your important travel documents and valuables neatly tucked away in the safety deposit box. There is no telephone or Wi-Fi in the rooms, so while you’re here you have the chance to reconnect with nature.
