THE MOST BIOLOGICALLY INTENSE PLACE ON EARTH
From the soil to the skies, at Lapa Rios there is life wherever you look. Perched on an ocean-facing ridge in the midst of a 1,000-acre private rainforest reserve, our verdant world is teeming with creatures big and small, many iconic and others yet to be discovered.
Here, our tropical climate, glorious sunshine and vital rainfall create the perfect conditions for species to thrive. A staggering 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity is found on the Osa Peninsula, including a number of endangered and endemic species. A great many call Lapa Rios home.

“Lapa Rios is by far the most immersive wildlife experience I’ve ever had, with every corner moving, flying, crawling, leaping from branch to branch, etc. I truly came back different, possibly more animal; definitely a less wasteful human. We really need to get it together, People! And if you need that reminder, go to Lapa Rios, live amongst the beautiful creatures and see why. It’s probably the most important thing you can do.”
