Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica
Enjoying a prime location on the edge of Corcovado National Park, Casa Corcovado is a deluxe outpost in one of the world’s last true wildernesses. There are no roads to the jungle lodge, and the only access is via a 90-minute boat ride from the sleepy town of Sierpe on the northern end of the Osa Peninsula. This premier ecolodge—a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner—offers the ultimate blend of luxurious comfort and nature-based adventure. Its setting on a hilltop above a palm-fringed beach, surrounded by tropical gardens and 170 acres of pristine rain forest, provides awe-inspiring views and cooling ocean breezes.
Accommodations are in individual bungalows spaced throughout the gardens for maximum peace and privacy. The design of our junior suites (the largest of the bungalow offerings) mixes the vibrant, earthy colors and textures of the jungle with contemporary sophistication and amenities. The suites have separate sleeping and living quarters, plus a private screened porch. Special touches included wood-beamed ceilings, shutters, stained glass crafted by local artisans, and an open-air garden shower designed to offer a unique and refreshing experience of being one with the surrounding nature. Other amenities include safe deposit boxes, ample closets, hot water, tiled floors, ceiling fans and 24-hour electricity provided by the lodge's sustainable hydroelectric and solar systems. Two swimming pools are available for guests' enjoyment, a small spring-fed pool tucked into the forest, and the larger "El Solar" pool which uses solely solar energy to recycle the water. Los Vitrales restaurant features creative Costa Rican cuisine incorporating locally sourced fruits and vegetables.
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge is one of Costa Rica's leading examples of responsible ecotourism. Designed and constructed in a manner that minimizes impact on the environment, the lodge prides itself on its commitment to green and sustainable principles in every aspect of its day-to-day operations. It is also the closest accommodation to Corcovado National Park, the crown jewel of Costa Rica's world-renowned national park system. Located on Costa Rica's southwest Pacific coast, Corcovado is the last remaining large and sustainable lowland rainforest in Central America. Guests will have an opportunity to explore the largest mangrove wetlands system on Central America’s Pacific coast where there's a good chance to spot monkeys, crocodiles and plenty of birds, as well as possibilities to see dolphins and whales offshore.
