The lodge is built from wood that they collected in the area and it does look great. We stayed in the main building and were the only guests because in early December it was just the beginning of the season. It would have been nice to stay with other guests because it felt a bit akward to be on our own. They told us that they were pretty much full all the time from Mid-December to the end of April. There are also some individual bungalows which are built in the middle of the jungle. They are certainly worth a try as well. We only stayed for one night because we went on the hike with one of their guides from Los Patos to La Sirena Ranger Station through the Corcovado NP. it is the most convenient lodge to spend the night before this long hike. The tours they had on offer sounded nice, i.e. canoeing in the Osa bay, visiting the Guayami people or visiting the Cocoa farm which apparently makes excellent chocolate. We would have loved to visit the Cocoa farm but they were not yet open, again too early in the season. The lodge has a few easy to do trails which keep you busy for an afternoon. We didn't see many animals but that was probably due to the rain. We did see a basilisk lizard who was running across the water on his back legs, hence its other name "Jesus Christ Lizard". The food was delicious. The only critisism we've got is the dessert which was made with tinned fruit. The lodge calls itself an Eco lodge which does not go with tinned fruit. We hope that they will not serve tinned fruit anymore. They must have bananas or papaya nearby which they can serve instead. Our room was big and the bathroom pretty much outside. Looking at the jungle whilst you are having a shower is a great feeling! Despite it being so open-air we didn't see any creepy crawley's. They may have seen us though...
