Our Review of Lapa Rios:

Lapa Rios is a wilderness refuge dramatically sited above the Golfo Dulce, in an isolated corner of the Osa Peninsula at the southern tip of Costa Rica. Seventeen thatched bungalows (no A/C, phones, TVs or internet access in rooms) are situated on a steep hillside covered with tropical vegetation and outfitted with netted windows and private decks; bear in mind, the higher the room number, the longer and steeper the climb to the main building. Open-air restaurant has a platform for viewing monkeys, parrots, toucans and macaws. Massage treatments, salt pool, jungle/shoreline safaris and horseback riding. Overseen by a friendly and knowledgeable staff, this ecological sanctuary captures the essence of wild Costa Rica. No children under age 6.
