Lapa Rios

Set in a private nature reserve spread over a 1000-acre tropical lowland primary rainforest, Lapa Rios is a deluxe jungle hideaway overlooking the point where Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean.

Each bungalow has an ocean view and a wonderful setting with a private deck, outdoor shower, and a private bathroom. The property has a bar, restaurant, swimming pool and miles of private trails. Lapa Rios is built on a hillside so there are steps to and from the accommodation and reception.

Why we like it

Lapa Rios protects 1,000 acres of mostly primary rainforest from logging and uncontrolled development, making it a sanctuary for a variety of plants and animals.
