An Eco lodge is a structure that is designed and developed with the intention of maintaining the ecological and environmental integrity of its surroundings. In short this means that the structure is built to complement rather than intrude on its environment. These have become popular as countries try to avoid damaging or destroying the natural surroundings by the intrusion of man, which is inevitable in tourist prone areas.   Some of the best examples of eco lodges can be found in the country of Costa Rica.
