One of the best places i have ever been (and I've been to a lot). The rainforest is amazing, the noises are enchanting. The lodge is beautifully done, overlooking the pacifc so you can walk down to a deserted wild beach. I echo what other reviewers have said: go to Osa and stay here - you won't be disappointed. We...

We loved El Remanso for all kinds of reasons, beginning with the remarkable piece of land upon which it sits. It offers rain forests that are unspoiled, hiking trails for every level you may want, beachfront that is spectacular, water falls, streams, tide pools and a lagoon. The wildlife you see is almost unbelievable, with exotic birds, four kinds of... More

We stayed there in July 2013 and it was heaven! We were there 5 nights with our 8 year old daughter and 13 year old son. The staff is amazing. The site is beautiful. La Vainilla was so great. I can't think of anything I would change. The naturalist and guides were knowledgable and competent. We went on night hikes,... More

We returned a few days ago from El Remanso and it was so different and amazing it seems like a dream. My husband and I went for 7 nights with our 13 year old daughter and 11 year old son. This is a perfect trip for a family looking for an adventure and a place to be "off the grid".... More

It had been a dream of my husband and I to travel to Costa Rica and when we finally were able to travel, we decided on El Remanso, in Osa. We were so pleased, we will definitely go back as soon as possible! The variety of wildlife - plant and animal - was amazing! We enjoyed two birding tours and... More

This was our last port of call in Costa Rica after having stayed at San Jose, Arenal and Monteverde. We enjoyed all our destinations - they all exceeded our expectations but El Remanso was our 'cherry on the cake' to savour at the end of our holiday and boy did it do that!!! This was a new experience for us,... More

We stayed here 4 nights with our two teenage kids. El Remanso is set on a ridge in a primary growth rain forest. Cell phones don't work there and you don't want to check your email because why mess up paradise. If you are into nature this is the place for you. We went on several guided and self guided... More

It's a good sign when my only remotely negative comment is that the dessert selection was a little odd (more chocolate please!). The location is incredible, the animals and plants are all around you, the guides are friendly and knowledgeable, the staff is first-rate, and the meals were exquisite (not just given the remote location, but comparable to any good...

I created a trip to the Osa Peninsula and to El Remanso Lodge in particular as a gift for my husband in early March. I had zero interest in what I thought would be a place full of mosquitoes, too-basic lodging, and plenty of birds/animals that I didn't think I wanted to be near. I didn't know how wrong I... More

We stayed at El Remanso for 3 days. The fact that there is absolutely no noise and you are in close contact with nature made our trip amazing. We visited the waterfall, the fresh water lagoon and the beach. We also managed to see toucans, monkeys, spiders, macaws. The "sounds" of the forest in the evening were also amazing. The... More
