Wished I could have stayed longer in this rainforest lodge with it,s birds, caimans, exotic plants, frogs, spring fed pool, walks and good food. The staff were very helpful. Charged for big bag of washing rather than per item. Honesty bar good too.

If you like to be in the middle of nature - it is here. Comfortable sleeping accomodations yet you are in the middle of the rainforest, the sound of birds in the morning, taking a solitary walk in the forest, seeing lots of birds. It is not for those unaccustomed to nature: leaf cutter ants and a bat corner share... More

it's a very unique experience - to be clear, it is not a luxury hotel and it doesn't pretend to be one - if you're somebody who likes nature, rain forests, trails, boat trips through mangroves and great and friendly service - go there! the history behind the place is amazing itself - built by an Austrian violin professor from...

We liked very much this wunderful place!In the middle of rainforest Nature,you might just wonder about all the species of plants and animals you can encounter,if you are sharpening your senses and be lucky at the same time..An absolute Must is a walk in the dark,with a guide of course:bring your own small light along! Beside the fact of discovering... More

I very much enjoyed my time at Esquinas Rainforest Lodge. The lodgings were comfortable and nicely decorated. The food was great and the scenery beautiful. Definitely a paradise for birds and amphibians. The combination of rain and tink frogs provided the soundtrack to one of the best nights sleep I had in Costa Rica. Also loved the bats in the... More

We stayed 2 nights at Esquinas on a Road Scholar birding trip and found it delightful: a real rainforest experience, despite the fact that it was in the dry season. We were sorry to leave and would have liked to stay longer.

Stayed for 2 nights. Lodge area was excellent and wildlife seen on the trails leading from lodge was prolific. Meals were good. Conservation and sustainability were top of their priority and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Especially the bats roosting behind the bar.

Lush vegetation. There are several path to admire the various types of plants and trees: when you arrive they give you a map of the walking trails that are available to guests. In the night you can hear the call of the frogs. Simple but clean housing; bring lotion to shower and hair. Meals of poor quality. The menu is... More

Stayed one night at esquinas. Beautiful location and nice villa. Stil the price was too high for what we got. The food was average. Food was served at fixed times and the service was very machine like/unpersonal :). The room was ok but very moist and sheets not that clean. Concluding very nice location but too pricy! Average - Good

Great stay at the Esquinas Rainforest Lodge. We went looking for frogs on our first night there with our guide. We didn't expect to come across a caiman living in the frog pond! Lots of other wildlife live very close by. It did rain a bit but it is in a rainforest. No glass in the windows for the rooms,... More
