It would be incorrect to evaluate Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge as mere accommodation or a resort. The correct evaluation would involve the total experience.
Our package included flights to from/ to San Jose: in single turbo prop aircraft, a boat ride through a serpentine river lined with mangroves and partly through a choppy Pacific Ocean before a tricky “beach landing” at the foot of the resort.
Disregard the out-dated photos of murky water issuing in taps. This is well-managed property involving the sincere and hard work of many caring individuals, who take pride in their work of looking after their guests. Any temporary shortcomings may be due to the logistics of managing a place without road access or even a cellular telephone network: plus the fact that the place adjoins the Park and nature often demonstrates who the boss is.
Although described as biologically “intense”, do remember that spotting wildlife is a chancy affair and a fleeting glimpse is the best one can hope for. Nevertheless the experience is intense, surreal and technically a bit retro in a good sense.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set above a palm-fringed beach in tropical gardens, and surrounded by 170 acres of pristine rainforest, Casa Corcovado is the ultimate combination of luxurious comfort and adventure - a place where you can spot big cats on jungle trails, have an entire beach to yourselves, snorkel with manta rays, and relax with a gin and tonic by the pool. The tranquil hilltop setting means awe-inspiring views and the best of the both ocean and rainforest breezes. The lovely bungalows are spaced throughout the lush garden for maximum peace and privacy. Casa Corcovado offers the closest accommodation to Corcovado National Park, the crown jewel of Costa Rica's extraordinary, world-renowned national park system. As the two protected areas lie side by side, guests are able to access the national park on foot via the hotel's private trails - just one of the many guided tours on offer. ... more less
