Lapa Rios

Set in a private nature reserve spread over 1,000 acres of Central America’s last remaining lowland tropical rainforest in Costa Rica, Lapa Rios Ecolodge overlooks the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the wild Pacific Ocean, making it the destination that matches every one’s idea of paradise.

Lapa Rios was built by John and Karen Lewis as a private nature reserve. The Lapa Rios reserve is connected through a corridor with Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula.

It is built in harmony with the surrounding forest and beach environment. Lapa Rios is an ideal vacation experience for people that like nature and will like to learn about conservation culture and biodiversity.

Honeymoon couples looking for a more active and unique kind of experience, as well as families with older children wanting to spend some real quality time together will also enjoy the experience.

Please note that we do not recommed Lapa Rios for children under six years old. Sixteen spacious bungalows nestled within the rain forest exude tranquility.

Activities at Lapa Rios are focused around the rainforest and the nearby ocean: rainforest hikes, bird watching, ocean kayaking, horseback riding, catch and release sport fishing and surfing are some of the activities offered.

Furthermore, guests can enjoy a relaxing massages, participate in yoga classes, relax at the pool with a tropical cocktail or just doze away in a hammock For many guests, the highlight is a tour to Corcovado National Park by plane or a night camping in the jungle.

Lapa Rios Ecolodge is more than just a beautiful rainforest hotel or eco resort next to the beach. Lapa Rios is a ecotourism project that strives to show that a forest left standing is worth more than one cut down.

Besides winning awards from Conde Nast Traveler and being featured in many international publications, Lapa Rios is a pioneer in sustainable tourism employing only people from the local community and being committed to enviromentally sound practices.
