Set in a private nature reserve spread over 1,000 acres of Central America’s last remaining lowland tropical rainforest, Lapa Rios Ecolodge overlooks the pristine point where the Golfo Dulce meets the wild Pacific Ocean. Lapa Rios is built in harmony with the surrounding forest and beach environments. Set over 350 feet above the sea, the lodge catches the cooling tropical breezes. The main lodge, housing the restaurant and bar, soars 50 feet and is built of local, natural materials. Comfortable, locally made bamboo furniture adds to relaxation in this tranquil setting. Lapa Rios is a pioneer in sustainable tourism employing only people from the local community and being committed to environmentally sound practices.
Activities: Activities 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.
Special Attraction: For many guests, the highlight is a night spent camping in the jungle.
