Enjoying Costa Rica with a Costa Rica Nature Escape custom made package


Lapa Rios is built in harmony with the surrounding forest and beach environment. The main lodge and bungalows line three ridges connected by walking paths and steps. Built over 350 feet above the sea, Lapa Rios catches the cooling tropical breezes. The main lodge, housing the restaurant and bar, soars 50 feet and is built of local, natural materials. Palm thatched roofs meet a three-story hardwood circular stairway. Climb to overlook the forest canopy and breathtaking ocean vistas. Comfortable, locally made bamboo furniture adds to relaxation in this tranquil panorama of nature.

Lapa Rios Ecolodge is more than just a beautiful rainforest hotel or eco resort next to the beach. Lapa Rios is a model 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 environmentally sound practices.

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 take massages, participate in Yoga classes, relax at the pool with a tropical cocktail or just take a nap in a hammock and maybe observe the birds, monkeys and other animals that come by. For many guests, the highlight is a tour to Corcovado National Park by plane or a night camping in the jungle.

Lapa Rios is an ideal vacation experience for people that like nature and are open to learning about conservation, culture and biodiversity. Honeymoon couples looking for a more active and unique kind of experience as well as families with older children that are looking to spend some real quality time together also enjoy the experience. Think of yourself as a traveler and not a tourist when coming to Lapa Rios. Feel free to explore our website and hopefully some time soon we will be able to share our vision with you.
