We were turned onto this resort by some friends who have visited El Remanso five times. Now we know why! This is an incredibly unique experience for so many reasons…. - The setting is breath taking. When you first arrive you are treated to the tree top view of the Pacific from the deck of the Lodge. You’re nestled in...

This place is remote, and lacks the "amenities" of the "normal" tourist traps, but I didn't come here to feel like I was still at home. The setting is stunningly beautiful, the cabins and lodge embrace the surroundings, and you will see more wildlife than you can imagine. We awoke to howler monkeys, saw the amazing scarlet macaws in flight,...

Nothing prepared me for the gracious hospitality, sublime surroundings, and wonderfully fun time that my family enjoyed at El Remanso. It was a remarkable week! My two daughters (16 and 20 ) and I made a list of everything we wanted to do in Costa Rica and I was amazed that we found it all in one place. From galloping...

A few monts ago she found it and asked our gang of seven if they would want to go to El Remanso to celebrate our 60th birthdays and 40 years of friendship. Four of us booked our plans...

I ventured off with three other friends to the El Remanso lodge with no idea of what lay before me. I looked at the pictures on their website and I also knew it was an Eco-Lodge. What I found was an extraordinary place in the most beautiful setting. Some highlights for me were: our room, the friendliest staff I have...

El Remanso is the epitomy of what an eco lodge should strive for. If you are travelling to the Osa Pennisula, this is a must.The planning and effort to make the lodge both sustainable and functional is a model that is an outstanding example of what can be achieved.We have a house in Costa Rica but hadn't been to Puerta...

I have traveled all over the world and this was by far my favorite trip ever. My husband and I took our two children, 14 and 10, to El Remanso for the week of Christmas. Upon arrival, we were introduced to the staff and then greeted by name the rest of the week. They kept up this type of personal...

Looking for something authentic where to spend our Christmas break with our teens, El Remanso Lodge was the perfect place: from the very first contact in Puerto Jimenez with Gabby and Jose to the last warm goodbye hugs with Tamar, Silvana, Adriana and Daniel, we knew the location was worth it. Friendly, polite and so hospitable staff, healthy and tasteful...

Found this fabulous lodge on the net..last minute arrangements made with exceptional efficiency from the staff at El Remanso. We really did not know what to expect but from the time we arrived until the time we reluctantly departed, we were totally impressed. The site was just perfection and the accommodations were rustic and charming, clean and quiet (we stayed...

We recently spent a week at El Remanso in the stunning Osa Peninsula. It was actually our second time at this same spectacular lodge! We went two years ago for a romantic anniversary get-away and decided to return to Costa Rica again. This very special place in the heart of the rain forest just bekons you back. The first time...
