Set in a private nature reserve spread over 1,000 acres of Central America’s last remaining lowland tropical rain forest, Lapa Rios overlooks the point where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean near the Corcovado National Park, making it the destination that matches anyone’s idea of paradise.
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.
