Esquinas Rainforest Lodge

Esquinas Rainforest Lodge 3 Star

from £223 per room night

 
 

Location

Located within a 35-acre private reserve, Esquinas Rainforest Lodge is an ideal place to get away from it all, yet is just 30 minutes from Golfito airport. Surrounded by 2,500 acres of untouched rainforest, this small, 16-room hotel is 100% carbon-neutral – the perfect retreat for nature lovers.

Rooms

All 14 bungalows and rooms have a private bathroom with shower. Ceiling fans and screens help keep you cool, and the comfortable decor includes colourful fabrics woven by the Guaymi and Boruca Indians. The exclusive Jungle Villa, 200m from the main lodge, features two connecting bedrooms, each with separate bathroom, private covered veranda and open balcony, as well as a large living area with fully equipped kitchen.

Activities

Follow the nature trail through the hotel's tropical garden, take a stroll around Lake Esquinas and perhaps take a guided night hike to the riverbed to see frogs, bats and snakes. Since there are no other lodges nearby, other holidaymakers are a rare sight here. The staff can organise excursions for you to go dolphin-watching, horse-riding, kayaking or hiking. If that all sounds a bit too active, you can just chill out by the hotel's pool, which is fed by a warm, clear jungle stream, so there's no need for filters or chlorine.

Dining

The menu here is based on modern Costa Rican gastronomy, alongside traditional recipes. The kitchen uses organic produce from the hotel's garden, as well as locally caught seafood. Typical dishes include pork roast with tamarind sauce, steamed vegetables with poppy seed and string bean omelette, and desserts including arroz con leche (rice pudding with cinnamon).
