Evergreen Lodge
Location
Tortuguero, Costa Rica

Evergreen Lodge is tucked deep within the tropical rain forest, just five minutes from the boundary of Tortuguero National Park. Rustic yet comfortable, this classic Costa Rican ecolodge provides the ideal base from which to explore the wildlife wonders of Tortuguero. Individual cabanas have en suite bathrooms and large windows that offer a panorama of the surrounding rain forest and its wild residents, including many monkeys. The spacious dining room and bar have a soaring peaked roof and walls of windows that look out onto the jungle landscape. A swimming pool invites a refreshing dip after a day of discovery in the steamy forest environs. From the lodge, we explore Tortuguero's scenic, winding canals by boat, searching for the abundant wildlife for which the park is renowned. We may also explore the forest surrounding the lodge on foot via a network of nature trails.
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge
Location
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 by boat. 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.
Senda Monteverde Hotel
Location
Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica

This sustainable luxury ecolodge located high on Costa Rica's continental divide was recently rebuilt from the ground up. It features 24 warmly appointed suites in contemporary mountain bungalows. Duplexes have covered open-air porches on either end with a hilltop view of the distant Pacific Ocean, or they overlook lush gardens and the cloud forest beyond. Interiors feature gleaming hardwoods, contemporary art, modernist furnishings, king or twin beds, mini bar, coffee maker, ceiling fan and in-room laptop-size safe. Stylish en suite bathrooms have minimalist semi-enclosed glass showers, freestanding porcelain basins and organic toiletries. The farm-to-table movement is strong here, and guests enjoy artfully prepared meals sourced from fresh regional ingredients including artisanal produce, locally raised meats, Monteverde cheese and famous Costa Rican coffee. Bread is baked in-house and served with house-made nut butters and spiced fruit chutneys. The lodge is proximate to both the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Curi-Cancha Reserve, and within walking distance of the Aguti Wildlife Reserve, where a network of trails provides access to more than 60 acres of flourishing flora and fauna.

Arenal Observatory Lodge
Location
Arenal, Costa Rica

One of the most striking accommodations in Costa Rica, Arenal Observatory Lodge lies 1.7 miles across a deep river valley from the crater of Arenal Volcano, which was until recently one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Originally built in 1987 as a Smithsonian Institution scientific research station, the lodge was carefully positioned by scientists who needed a close but safe vantage point from which to study the volcano. Still the closest accommodation to the volcano itself, the lodge sits on 870 acres adjacent to Arenal Volcano National Park, which contains 270 acres of primary rain forest with well-marked trails, 400 acres of reforestation projects, and 200 acres of working farmland.

Most of the property's 48 spacious rooms have spectacular volcano views through huge windows. The restaurant and dining room look out on the southern face of the volcano through floor-to-ceiling windows. Meals are memorable, with the lodge's accomplished chef preparing international and Costa Rican cuisine using local fruits, vegetables and farm-raised meats whenever possible. Outside, a large deck offers panoramic views of the volcano and nearby Lake Arenal.  After exploring the area, guests can relax in the infinity swimming pool or the sunken Jacuzzi that's covered with a glass gazebo framing Arenal Volcano.
