RESPONSIBLE & MEANINGFUL TRAVEL
Commitment To Sustainability
Since their inception, sustainability has been a core value at Lapa Rios. Nature conservation and community development are their very raisons d’être. “We strive to use tourism as a means to acquire and protect the surrounding endangered rainforest instead of allowing it to take a toll on this precious and finite resource.”
At Lapa Rios, they endeavour to operate in complete harmony with the world around us. Their sustainable philosophy is reflected in their design and guides every decision: “we respect the wildlife and nature around us; we utilize renewable materials for sustainable and low-impact construction; we promote use of locally-sourced biodegradable products and organic foods; we employ exclusively local staff; we educate them, our local community, and you, our guests, about sustainability, cultural and environmental matters.”
Stories For The Grandkids
“From the Macaws flying by the lodge and spider monkeys throwing things at us on the Osa Trail, to horseback riding on the beach to catching six yellow fin tunas and a sailfish weighing 100 pounds. Just amazing! We will be telling stories of our honeymoon to our grandchildren. Perhaps someday we will bring our children here so they can learn and experience the beauty of Mother Nature.”
– Phil & Roselyn, Washington DC
Lapa Rios Lodge enjoys a privileged location where the rainforest meets the ocean. Unlike other land-locked jungle lodges, guests of Lapa Rios have easy access to a number of secluded beaches along the sprawling Golfo Dulce coastline.
