We had high expectations of El Remanso when we booked our trip as it came with such glowing recommendation. We were met at the airport and immediately asked what we would like for lunch in order to inform the kitchen so we did not have to wait long to eat once we arrived at the lodge. Yes the journey is...

Our agent suggested this would be the highlight of our trip and she was correct. After visiting various National Parks we were aware that we had to share the delights of Costa Rica with many other people. This then was a sheer delight - a small Eco lodge in the middle of mainly primary rainforest. A little difficult to get... More

I wanted to get away for a few days by myself to disconnect form the world and I got my wish. All inclusive trip, I had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and would leave the property to do fun things like a 10 minute walk to the secluded beach, bird watching, Waterfall rappelling, hiking, and just hanging out on my...

My husband and I spent just over a week in Costa Rica at various locations. El Remanso was by far the best place we stayed. It was beautiful, the staff was amazing and we had a great time. We did the active package which included various hikes, waterfall rappelling, zip lining and bird watching. We had two different guides and... More

This eco- lodge is beautifully designed with cabins overlooking the jungle and Pacific ocean. The positioning allows for ocean breezes that minimize the humidity and insects. The staff are attentive and personable, the food delicious and healthful. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and informative. We did the active package and loved every moment of seeing wildlife, waterfall rappelling and zipline.... More

It takes a while to get there but that's part of the fun. Forty-five minutes on a dirt road and once you've arrived at El Remanso Lodge you won't want to leave. Hikes of all kinds, night, morning, birding, river walks, zip lining, the endless beach which is a fun walk in itself - we were busy every day of... More

The guides are so nice and knowledgable. Great for active people who love to hike. We spent the first four days of our trip in La... More

We recently returned from a two week trip to Costa Rica. We spent 4 nights at El Remanso Lodge, and it was for sure the highlight of our trip, and he's why. The setting of the lodge is perched on a bluff over the Pacific, and you're surrounded by jungle. The sunset from the pool deck is remarkable. The rooms... More

No glass in the windows, no air conditioning, woken up at 4am! Probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in! Our cabin, La Guinda, is I believe the best at the property, overlooking the Pacific Ocean down a rainforest valley on the Osa Peninsula. We had the great good fortune to visit at a very quiet time, with no... More
