After a beatiful ride down from the central mountain range of Costa Rica we arrived in the small community of Las Palmas. We passed by colourful houses and got a small taste of the real Costa Rica. As we arrived in the pooring rain we were welcomed by one of the boys working in the lodge. He just stood there... More

The reception staff (local girl and guy), unfortunately could not speak English. They were either not expecting two guys for the lodge or were expecting only one guest instead of 2 guests. So they quickly took arrangements to make up a spare bed. When we entered our lodge the girl asked us to take of shoes, boots or sandals in... More

Dante Corcovado Lodge is one of our most exithing accomodations of out costa rica trip. Nice wooden lodges with everything you need in the open nature experience. Friendly employees, excellent food. A joy to stay. If you go to the south of costa rica i suggest to join this lodge.

We stayed at Danta mid-July for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We loved everything about Danta. The staff: Merlin, Nelson, Andres, Gabriel (just to name a few) are helpful and friendly. Danta is owned and operated by Ticos, not always the norm in Costa Rica. Merlin has a lot of pride and love for his lodge and it shows. The... More

I normally am very happy with booking properties I find with TripAdvisor. However, I will say that this choice was horrible. They advertise as having WiFi and the web site looks very nice. When we arrived we were first alarmed by the horrible location. It was not in the rain forest but at the back side of a local costa... More

This place was the highlight of our stay in Costa Rica, the surroundings do not look so great when you first get there but once you discover your hidden villa in the forest, you feel you have landed to some extraordinary place, alone in the forest surrounded by wildlife. Sleeping in the wild is a great experience, although it can... More

We recently spent two wonderful nights at guests at Danta Corcovado in Costa Rica. The hotel and resort sits just outside of the Corcovado National Park, and is owned and operated by a very enterprising Costa Rican family. All of the architecture is built of local materials, with original wood carvings and beautifully maintained wooden floors in all the cabins... More

The staff were always right on time and patient - no waiting on them to show up - they were there when they said they would be. The meals were plenty and delicious. I stayed there (mother) with my two preteens and we loved the trails there. The lodge and bungalows are exquisitely designed: the walls, sinks, chairs, showers,.... were... More

My friend and I recently stayed at Danta Corcovado Lodge. We only stayed 2 days on our way to Corcovado NP, however, I would definitely stay longer next time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and let us store our luggage for a few days until we returned from the park. The bungalows backed up to secondary growth forest... More

My husband and I (seniors) spent a fabulous 5 days at Danta Lodge. It was a great experience: a perfect setting with trails in both primary and secondary rain forest; a terrific day trip to a waterfall in Corcovado Park; an unusual, somewhat exotic and very attractive lodge; superb, healthy, tasty food; lovely attentive staff; an excellent bird and nature...
