el remanso lodge - is a remote small scale luxury lodge, created 8 years ago with a set of very strict policies to minimize the impact on the environment. We are proud to be the only lodge in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica to rely 100% on renewable energies. We appear in most of the Travel Guides of Costa Rica  as well as a series of articles in magazines (The Times, Cooking light, Der Spiegel – Germany) and we have had also a couple of TV appearances.  Mtv came here in 2005 with Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba, Kelly Slater and Kid Rock. The Jeff Corvin Show (Animal Planet) and “Ultimate Survival” with Bear Grylls, choose us for location settings. We are oriented for those seeking to enjoy the secrets and pleasures of a pristine rainforest experience. 


la cusinga lodge - “La Cusinga is a true eco-lodge, with respect and love for creation shown in its architecture, in its energy and water systems, and in the way the owners have done just enough to make things comfortable, without interfering with the natural, untouched feel of the place. The incredible views from every room, the tastefully prepared food, the forest giants and wildlife so at home in La Cusinga's reserve, and the beauty of nearby Playa del Arco, make this a very special and unique destination. Maintaining and protecting this natural paradise over the last three decades has been no easy task, and is still a challenge that the owners take on with courage and responsibility. The result is an unforgettable experience for nature lovers.”
--Beatrice Blake, green travel consultant and author of The New Key to Costa Rica, now in its 17th edition.

delfin amor eco lodge - located in Drake Bay, Costa Rica, an area known as the most biologically diverse on the planet according to National Geographic. We have discovered this to be true not only on land, but also at sea.  We offer guided rainforest tours and educational and fun wild dolphin and whale encounters led by marine biologists and qualified guides.  Drake Bay has pods of thousands of dolphins, including Spotted, Bottlenose, Roughtooth, Spinner and Common dolphins, and almost year round Humpback Whales due to migrations from both North and South America.  Help support our non-profit foundation, Vida Marina, in our goal to create a protected marine sanctuary in the area. Hang out with the monkeys, toucans and macaws while on land.  Eco does not have to be uncomfortable!  Beautiful private, screened in, tiled cabinas with private baths, warm showers, ceiling fans and stunning rainforest and ocean views.  An eco adventure beyond your wildest dreams!

hotel el cafetal - El Cafetal Inn is a place of renewal and inspiration, where NATURE reveals herself to help us look inside ourselves. Wherever you turn, you're surrounded by the awesome natural beauty of Costa Rica! Walk the trails to the river, and when your inner voice tells you to rest you'll find private benches, and hammocks, inviting and perfectly placed. Surrounded by native birds and butterflies, or you can go all the way to the river and get your feet wet stepping over the rocks. A twenty minute exploration and you'll be rewarded with a spectacular waterfall. On your way back you can swim in the pool surrounded by coffee plants and trees.... Very Private.
