Casa corcovado

Introduction

The striking 170-acre private hilltop reserve has everything going for it from a seductive natural location on the border of the famous Corcovado National Park to world-class accommodation options and top-notch service. Casa Corcovado’s accommodations are constructed in the form of Spanish-colonial type structures, by incorporating elements of conservation, which are completely in sync with its natural surroundings. Couple that with an in-depth rainforest adventure, a multitude of nature-based activities and family-friendly in-house guest amenities and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect eco-getaway. The lodge’s ‘hop skip and jump’ proximity to Corcovado National Park (the last existing Pacific lowland rainforest in terms of sustainable size in Central America) and its relaxed aura have made it a popular choice for tourists looking to explore the charm of the Southern Pacific.

Amenities and Activities

Casa Corcovado offers its guests a plethora of activities on a heady nature/adventure platter. If the two picturesque swimming pools in the premises don’t win your vote, then sipping a margarita at the hilltop sunset bar will sure do the trick. Lazy loungers can go beach-combing on the half-kilometer secluded beach followed by a refreshing halt under a lush waterfall. Rainy afternoons can be negotiated by playing boarding games and reading nature-based literature at the well-stocked indoor games room and library. The lodge also has an intimate and well-maintained conference center along with an informal lounge for small-group activities or relaxed reading.

In addition to this, there are several guided tours and activities such as early morning birding tours, horse riding, scuba diving, sportsfishing tours, sea kayaking, mangrove tours and several others, which are arranged by the lodge to appease the nature lover’s appetite.

Service and Accommodation

Casa Corcovado’s service is warm and attentive, without being intrusive. The lodge’s owner, Steve Lill is co-founder and president of the Corcovado Foundation- a significant supporter of initiatives related to sustainability and preservation of the Osa wildlife. This eco-consciousness philosophy duly reflects itself in the earnest service and attitude of the staff as Casa Corcavado.

Accommodation at the Casa Corcovado is available is the form of well-appointed and spacious private Spanish style bungalows, which are equipped with double beds (every bed has a mosquito net enveloping it) and a large-tiled attached bathroom (with hot-water shower). Some accommodations also feature open garden showers. The tastefully decorated suites (with touches of classy wood furniture and stained glass accents) radiate an elegant and aesthetic aura complete with shutters handmade by local artisans.
