Lapa Rios



Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Dramatically sited above the Golfo Dulce, this 1,000-acre wilderness refuge is in an isolated corner of the Osa Peninsula at the southern tip of Costa Rica. The 17 thatched bungalows are situated on a steep hillside covered with tropical vegetation. Note that all lodgings lack A/C. Six family-friendly villas featuring wraparound decks, plunge pools and living areas with daybeds have been completed. The rooms have been intentionally designed to provide travelers with a secluded retreat in which to relax and disconnect, and therefore do not have in-room phones, TVs or Wi-Fi. The spectacular restaurant has a platform for viewing monkeys, parrots, toucans and macaws. The property also has a saltwater pool, and jungle and shoreline safaris can be arranged. Overseen by a friendly staff, this ecological sanctuary captures the essence of wild Costa Rica. Children under the age of 6 are not permitted.
