If you love nature and don't mind roughing it a bit, this is a great place, away from it all. In fact, it can be reached only by boat, and the closest village (a handful of houses really) is a ten-minute boat ride away. But don't expect any luxuries--rooms are very basic, electricity runs only from 5 to 10 p.m.... More

If you go there you are NOT going on a luxury vacation. Expect cold showers, limited electricity, bugs in your room, a long boat journey to get there and a steep and sometimes slippery slog uphill to reach the place. Believe me, Deet is your friend! (Other insect repellents are available, but don't work as well). However, the location is... More

We have spent in this lodge 3 days and they have been the best of our tour! The place is fantastic, far from any human contamination. Rooms are very peculiar without walls but just nets you sleep cocooned by the sound of the ocean and the voice of the animals. The view is amazing. Electricity is on only from 5,30pm... More

At Punta Marenco, you will be staying in a rustic cabin. There is electricity only during certain hours of the day, and the shower is a cold water shower. There is internet at the lodge, but is is slow. You will be lucky to be able to check your e-mail during your stay. In order to get to Punta Marenco,... More

Our group of 10 people stayed at Punta Marenco for two nights. Here are a few "highlights" of our experience: 1) When we arrived we found that half of our rooms were without toilet paper and towels and when we asked the staff for toilet paper they reacted as if we were bothering them, 2) The rooms were dirty and...

I've been to Punta Marenco twice, once in a large group and once as a solo traveler. Besides the staff being knowledgable, friendly, and eager to show guests a great time, the location of the lodge is next to none. Located in Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula, there is no place that is better to go to see... More

We arrived in Costa Rica the summer of 2010. We had an idea of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to stay, but we did not arrange for any accommodations beforehand. We heard of Punta Marenco Lodge from the owner of Cinco Hormingas Rojas, a bed and breakfast in San Jose. We booked the 3 night 4... More
