We stayed here in January 2014 for four nights. We stayed in the Coco hut, close to the ocean so the sounds of the jungle and ocean either lull you to sleep or keep you awake! Room was new, clean and spacious. Not five star luxury but given the remoteness of the lodge and their goal to be green, understandable. The boat trip down the river out to sea was a very unique way to arrive and the location right on the water was special.
We did the Corcovado station tour which was amazing, crocodiles, tapir, all kinds of monkeys, toucans, macaws and nearly interaction with the feral pigs which Im glad we missed. A must do tour while you are there and beautiful to cruise the coastline of the Osa peninsula on your way to and from. Mauricio was our guide for all activities and was a pro at spotting and identifying even very hidden animals. Cano island snorkeling was a bit underwhelming due to poor visibility, but the trip to the island was fun, saw pods of dolphins and the water was very warm. I would also recommend the night hike into the jungle.
The food was also very good, especially the early evening snacks like fresh made sushi. Hopefully you or your resort friends have gone deep sea fishing so that the catch of the day get cooked for dinner. We had fresh Wahoo, Mahi, green jack, and snapper. Fun to see the fish carried off the boat hours before dinner. The communal dining area is beautiful and was a great spot to relax and swap stories with the other guests and staff. Jay and Mike, the owners were ever present and interested in your experience, always giving tips on hikes and excursions.
Highly recommended and we will definitely try to come back here again! Location is tranquil, great food, nice rooms and very fun excursions. Staff was very friendly, especially Henry and the chief host during our stay.
