            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, a destination matching everyone's idea of paradise.  Lapa Rios was designed in harmony with the surrounding forest and beach environment. The main lodge and bungalows line three ridges and are connected by walking paths and steps. Built over 350 feet above the sea, Lapa Rios catches the cooling tropical ocean and forests breezes. The main lodge/restaurant soars fifty feet and, like the private sixteen bungalows, is built of locally harvested materials and has intricately woven palm thatched roofs. Climb the lodge’s three story circular stairway to overlook the forest canopy and breathtaking ocean vistas. Comfortable, locally made bamboo furniture and huge decks aid relaxation amidst pristine nature.

            Rain forest and ocean activities bring together guests and the community. Daily guest experiences include a variety of staff naturalist led rain forest interpretive hikes, bird watching walks and sustainable/educational local project visits. Ocean-mangrove boating trips, kayaking and surfing are offered by neighboring guides, as well as massages and yoga classes. Some guests’ highlights include a day hike in Corcovado National Park (via small plane transfer) or a night spent on the overnight platform; others find relaxing at the pool or hammock napping most memorable.
