Set on its own private bay, Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is located on the most southern part of the Osa Peninsula. This secluded wonderland is home to many of the country's rare and endangered animals such as wild cats, the Harpy Eagle and Scarlet Macaw. This area has been named one of the most biologically diverse places on earth and contains Central America's largest remaining Pacific Coast Rainforest. Here you'll discover jade waters and endless lush green vegetation amongst unspoiled remote beaches truly a sight to behold and treasure for a lifetime.
Get ready for an exciting journey that starts as you set foot into a lancha (boat) that will wisk you away to a magical mecca surrounded by blue green waters and mountains. This unique and private lodge, only accessible by boat offers 165 acres of private reserve as your backdrop and for endless exploration. The owner run lodge was designed for comfort and harmonious living with the environment. Here you can enjoy activities like kayaking through mangroves, fishing, snorkeling, hiking to hidden waterfalls and revel in endless wildlife viewings.

Feedback from Travelers
This place was awesome! We'll go back. I would recommend a private cabin for privacy. Activities were great
Lovely. Wonderful staff. Great place.
Incredible eco-lodge in the rain forest on the shore of Gulfo Dulce . Very laid back, beautiful lodge and common areas, good food, happy hour and bar, trails on site and kayaks, knowledgeable staff and guides. Guided hikes and kayak trips, fishing trips cost extra. Interesting mix of guests from all over the world, maybe 25-30 max, great birding, monkeys, and other wildlife.
