Rounding up from 4.5 stars. This place is reachable via a short-hop flight and then a boat, which makes it nice and remote. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food (veggie-friendly) was simple but delicious, and the room was comfortable. But the highlight was being in the

Thanks for your great review. It's not often someone can say they were woken up in the middle of the night by an armadillo or hung out with bats! We hope your stay at Nicuesa Lodge gave you both great stories and unforgettable memories. The jungle certainly is a special place. Seasoned hikers and campers definitely do well here, but so do city-slickers who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and experience the rainforest in a real way. We hope you can visit us again sometime.

We ended our Costa Rica trip with two nights at Playa Nicuesa. We were greeted at the dock in Golfito by the manager, Sven, and after a 15-20 minute water taxi ride, arrived at our lodging. You are very isolated at Playa Nicuesa, but you are well taken care of - after getting

Thanks for telling us about your trip and letting other travelers know what it's like to visit Nicuesa Lodge. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay and did so much in a short time. We agree with you that two nights is a bit short to fully take advantage of all that is here, so we hope you can come back again sometime. We look forward to welcoming you.

Thank you for your first-class review!! We are thrilled to hear all about how you enjoyed your stay with us at Nicuesa Lodge. The steps you took before you traveled to prepare for your trip really made all the difference. So did staying for five nights, which gave you plenty of time to do lots of activities but also to relax. Staying in the rainforest is completely unlike living anywhere else, other than the tropics, and we appreciate how you embraced your visit to "our world." We hope you can visit us again sometime.

We loved it here. The staff is very attentive and wonderful. The location had everything we wanted. We hiked in the jungle behind us. We swam, snorkeled and kayaked in the ocean in front of us. We enjoyed yoga each morning. The meals were very tasty. Our room was in the
