Introduction

El Remanso Lodge in the Osa Peninsula of Costa RicaEl Remanso is a 185 acres private reserve tucked away in the rainforest over an isolated and untamed Pacific Beachin in the surreal-looking Osa Peninsula. The lodge exudes an unpretentious and low-key persona, thus focussing on offering a highly warm, relaxing and personalized experience. Guests can explore a long-winded trail system (to help them encounter the wilderness of a primary rainforest along with its rich wildlife and abundant flora), together with deserted waterfalls, a secluded beach and an pristine lagoon. The dense rainforest canyons within the property are also adventurously peppered with small creeks and tide pools.

Since its inception in 1999, the lodge has been a frontrunner for sustainable practices with its stringent ecological policies and participation in local reforestation plans. For instance, the lodge was a pioneer in providing electricity through a micro-hydro method. These initiatives have won El Remanso the top “Certification For Sustainable Tourism” (CST- level 5) rating in the lodge’s very first certification process.
