Set in a private nature reserve spread over 1,000 acres of Central America’s last remaining lowland tropical rainforest in the wild Osa Peninsula, Lapa Rios is paradise for wildlife, nature and beach lovers. Our 17 private bungalows line three ridges overlooking the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean. Built over 350 feet above sea level, our property was designed in harmony with surrounding forest and beaches and was built with locally harvested materials. Much more than a luxurious lodge, Lapa Rios is a model ecotourism project and National Geographic Unique Lodge that has won worldwide awards for social and environmental excellence, and is a featured sustainable tourism pioneer. Home to monkeys, macaws, pumas, toucans, tree frogs and thousands of other creatures, a trip to Lapa Rios Lodge will be the trip of a lifetime.
