Relaxed lodge in a secluded area of natural beauty, set above a private beach. A peaceful place to stay, in harmony with its jungle surroundings.
The relaxed and romantic El Remanso lodge is set above a delightful wild beach and within its own tropical reserve near Corcovado National Park – one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world. The nearest town is a bumpy 22km away, all adding to the sense of seclusion coupled with adventure.
Expect to see howler monkeys, toucans and macaws both around the grounds and on guided naturalist walks in the wildlife-rich surroundings, while other optional activities include waterfall rappelling and ziplining through a forest canopy reverberating with the natural sounds of the jungle.
With just a dozen guest rooms and cottages, the lodge has a peaceful and intimate feel. Natural materials are prominent in the décor of the cabañas, which also feature a restful veranda area, and in the amply sized rooms and suites with king-size beds. There is also a semi-outdoor restaurant, bar and swimming pool.

Incredibly personal and friendly service.SM, Knaresborough
They could not have been more helpful when Nigel had a cold. We were looked after like treasured relatives, and Nigel was plied with ginger tea and paracetamol whenever he wanted. Good guided walk.JS, Bath
Our favourite on this trip. Lovely setting, exceptional staff. The guides on the walks were brilliant.RB, Bristol
Highlight of the holiday. Remarkable place and outstanding guided tours. Fabulous location with good facilities, food and service. Very happy and would highly recommend.DT, Beaconsfield
A stunning location and lovely food/setting. The only issue was one of no air conditioning in the rooms, which were very hot at night even with open windows and doors. This is due to the fact that it is an eco lodge - understandable, but if one cannot sleep then it's a problem. The overhead fan was insufficient to make much difference.EH, Edinburgh
Really helpful staff, wonderful birds and other animals. Delightful swimming pool area.Lovely food.JP, Exeter
