About
Description
We are an exclusive eco destination set in almost 1000 acres of pristine rainforest, enjoying direct access to a wild, palm-fringed beach within the calm waters of Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica. Enveloped by Piedras More Blancas National Park and with no roads around us, our boat is the only means of reaching us; our ecolodge is the ultimate getaway to wind down, reconnect with nature and create unforgettable memories.
