Lapa Ríos

Welcome to Lapa Rios Lodge

Fall asleep to the lull of distant waves at Lapa Rios Hotel. Awake to the sunrise and the call of howler monkeys. Step outside your bungalow to find a thermos of fresh roasted Costa Rican coffee waiting for you. As you make your way to the lodge for breakfast, you’re sure to be greeted by wild monkeys, toucans, macaws, sloths and other creatures of the rainforest.

Our 17 luxurious bungalows are nestled along a ridge in our 1000-acre private Rainforest Reserve. The bungalows are open-air with screens that allow you to experience the sounds, sights and smells of the rainforest and the ocean. All bungalows have ceiling fans (no air-conditioning) and offer stunning views of the Pacific Ocean or Golfo Dulce from your bed or spacious private decks.


Lapa Rios Eco Lodge is located in the beautiful Osa Peninsula, located in the southern part of Costa Rica near Panama. Our property is about 12 miles from the nearest airstrip in the town of Puerto Jimenez, a short 50-minute flight from Costa Rica’s San Jose Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). Driving from SJO to Lapa Rios Eco Lodge takes about 7 hours.


Costa Rica is known for its pristine natural beauty, wildlife and amazing adventures. Providing direct access to all these wonders and more, Lapa Rios Eco Lodge is situated in a 1000-acre private reserve in the Osa Peninsula—one of the most beautiful and wild parts of this country and home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. Osa is the only place in Costa Rica where you’ll find four species of monkeys—squirrel, spider, white-face capuccin and howler monkey—and Osa is one of Central America’s best locations for birders. Nearby Corcovado National Park is home to many of the country’s endangered animals such as pumas, jaguars, scarlet macaws and the great harpy eagle.
Water lovers will also be taken aback with this part of the world. Our property is home to three beautiful beaches and stunning waterfalls, surf lessons, horse back riding on the beach, and kayaking.


Guests come from all over the world to see the incredible wildlife at Lapa Rios. The property is situated in nearly 1000 acres of rainforest in the Osa Peninsula, home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity and many endangered species. Lapa Rios has trails throughout our property where you will spot creatures big and small on a hike with one of our experienced nature guides or just walking to breakfast. You can even volunteer with the Wild Cats Conservation Project to help install and review camera traps to keep track of the Osa’s endangered feline populations.
