I created a trip to the Osa Peninsula and to El Remanso Lodge in particular as a gift for my husband in early March. I had zero interest in what I thought would be a place full of mosquitoes, too-basic lodging, and plenty of birds/animals that I didn't think I wanted to be near. I didn't know how wrong I...

We stayed at El Remanso for 3 days. The fact that there is absolutely no noise and you are in close contact with nature made our trip amazing. We visited the waterfall, the fresh water lagoon and the beach. We also managed to see toucans, monkeys, spiders, macaws. The "sounds" of the forest in the evening were also amazing. The...

Amazing for the wildlife, relaxation, incredible atmosphere and service. My fiance and I are two students in our late 20s about to finish graduate school. We went to El Remanso on the tail end of a 2 month trip hiking and camping in Patagonia. We came to the Osa Peninsula for the wildlife. We were amazed by that and so...

I have never enjoyed a vacation more than my recent trip with adult family to Costa Rica. The highlight was the four nights spent at El Remanso Lodge. The five of us booked the large, private La Vainilla cabana which has a screened-in downstairs with sleeping for three or four, and a wonderful tree-house-like open upstairs with a king bed...

We enjoyed our stay at El Remanso the most of any place we visited in Costa Rica. It was the experience of a lifetime made possible by the breathtakingly beautiful rainforest, the eco sustainability of the resort, and by everyone who works there being committed to our happiness and us having the most enjoyable experience possible.

It’s been more than 2 months, and I’m peeking out at snow, but I’m still remembering and savoring the vacation at El Remanso. I was there with my husband and 20 year old daughter. It was beyond wonderful. I’d wanted to have an eco-adventure in Costa Rica for years, and El Remanso provided all of it. I teach environmental science...

My husband and I chose El Remanso for our first trip to Costa Rica and enjoyed almost every minute of it. The grounds were beautiful, our room was idyllic and the staff was impeccably friendly, professional and accomodating. The daily meals were delicious and are included in the package. There were plenty of activities (tours, waterfall rappelling, dolphin watching, nature...

We had a fabulous five nights in one of the cabinas. I would only be echoing all the positive things other people have said in their reviews if I wrote my own! It really is a very special place. The ethos makes it special and the staff belief in the ethos help maintain this. It was a privilege to be...
