Introduction

Nesting atop a soaring bluff overlooking the ocean and the neighboring Cano Island, the Drake Bay located La Paloma Lodge is spread across a 24-acre landscape that seamlessly blends with its adjoining tropical rainforests (home to a large assortment of wildlife and birds). The lush natural getaway is designed to offer guests a comfortable stay without letting go of the rustic elegance of its surroundings. It has also been consciously involved in exposing and educating guests to the splendor of Osa’s natural treasures along with efforts to preserve the picturesque region for future generations. Visitors will be enthralled by everything from unusual early morning jungle sounds to a stunning oceanic sunset that can be enjoyed from their balconies. Add a multitude of nature/adventure based activities to that along with a team of friendly employees and snug rooms, and you’ve been served an intoxicating mix of a calming natural retreat with a comfortable vacation resort.

Amenities and Activities

Guests will be spoilt for choice when it comes to indulging in nature/adventure activities around the region. Juxtaposed between the Pacific Ocean and a thriving rainforest, La Paloma offers several activities ranging from jungle hikes with experienced guides to invigorating massages by expert therapists. Picnicking on the beach is also a popular recreational option with several guests. Other activities organized by the lodge include canopy tours (zip lining through the treetops of primary rainforests bordering Corcovado National Park), horseback riding, kayaking, scuba-diving, birding and sport-fishing.
