Lapa Rios Lodge

A 1000-acre Rainforest reserve in the wild, Osa Peninsula

The experience of a lifetime

Lapa Rios is much more than a luxurious lodge – it’s a world-renowned model ecotourism project, a National Geographic Unique Lodge, and a sustainable tourism pioneer. Home to monkeys, macaws, pumas, toucans, and thousands of other creatures, a trip here is an adventure of a lifetime. Come see for yourself.

Untamed Wildlife  Corcovado Park  Adventurous Travelers


If you want the full rainforest experience – untamed and wild – you’ll love the Osa Peninsula. With 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity right here, National Geographic named it one of the most biologically intense places on earth. Hike through primary rainforest along the Carbonera river and chase waterfalls along the way. And the best part? Your last waterfall has a natural swimming pool – so bring your bathing suit and go for a dip! Read more about our Activities and Tours at Lapa Rios.


Whether sipping coffee on your terrace or finishing the last of your Gallo Pinto breakfast (a traditional Costa Rican starter), expect visits by troops of white-faced monkeys or pairs of scarlet macaws in the trees above you at any moment!


In your screened, open-air bungalow, enjoy stunning views of the Pacific Ocean & the Golfo Dulce. Remember, there’s no air conditioning here. Only cool ocean breezes. When you’re ready, take the hidden paths to the main lodge and see wildlife on your way. View our Bungalows.


And from August 21st-December 20th 2016, stay 3 nights, get the 4th night free. *Black-out Thanksgiving week (Nov. 21-27, 2016) Dates in mind? Check Rates & Availability.


We take you behind the scenes of our lodge and show you what our commitment to a greener, more sustainable way of life looks like. From renewable building materials to the biogas produced by our pigs, you’ll learn why Lapa Rios is an award-winning sustainable property.
