We, a German couple in the early 50ies, had the pleasure to stay 4 nights in this lodge and it was the highlight of our trip. We did the night kayaking, which was for me absolutely overwhelming, a day kayak tour and a fishing tour. We never fished before but Thomas enthusiasm is somewhat infectious and we enjoyed it a...

We've been bumming around Costa Rica for about three months and we were itching for a really unique experience; Bahia Rica provided exactly what we were itching for. We arrived late in Paquera because of the bus from Montezuma and were stressed we wouldn't make it for our 6:30pm reservation time. We called and asked if we could still come...

We've been on a weekend at Bahia Rica lodge and we felt like we were on holidays, that was great ! The house on the top of the hill is quiet, we loved the architecture that makes it fully integrated to the environment. This is a perfect place if you want to be independent. But need anything and Thomas and...

We had a wonderful time at the Bahia Rica Kayak and Fishing lodge. Our room was simple but it had all we need. The badroom was fine, but a new shower would be even better. The breakfast was fantastic. As Belgians we love bread and Vigdis made really good bread. The next morning we had pancakes, these were also incredibly...

We do have a challenge with the water pressure here, but we managed to get it somewhat improved now. We...

I stay with my family, my husband and my daughter (12 years old). We booked triple room, which was very large and comfortable for the three of us. The lodge is like Tarzan house, a wooden house with lots of details what make you like being at home. The shared bathroom is upstairs, with a shower "open" to beautiful garden....

We booked our trip to the Bahia Rica Lodge specifically for the bioluminescent tour. Sadly there was none to be seen, at all. I felt it was a bit of a bait and switch. It should be billed as simply a night kayak trip say nothing of the bioluminescent, that way if people see some it is a nice surprise....

A very special place! The combination of a wonderful natural environment and the perfect organized tours and excursions, make for an unforgettable vacation. We went on the kayaking and Tortuga Island tours, we also relaxed by the beautiful beach. The view was extremely relaxing and beautiful! The visits of the monkeys were a highlight. We will certainly come back!

My family had the amazing opportunity to night kayak with Vigdis and experience the bioluminescence. What a fantastic experience! I had never been in a kayak and was a little scared of being on the ocean at night. Vigdis was so calm and walked me through the whole process. This is a great way to spend an evening!

“Our family stayed in the top floor, two young men stayed on the first floor. Despite having a communal kitchen and bath we really didn't cross paths with them. It's an ideal rustic beach bungalow, we lost power for a while due to a storm which only added to the adventure, it felt like you were in atarzan movie. ”
