Esquinas Rainforest Lodge is a tropical paradise in the remote jungle of Southern Costa Rica,
surrounded by the untouched wilderness of new Piedras Blancas National Par. It was financed
by the government of Austria as part of a model project combining development aid, nature
conservation, and rainforest research. All profits go to the local community.
Only 5 kilometers apart from the Interamerican Highway and a 30 minute taxi
ride from Golfito airport, the lodge welcomes all kinds of nature lovers
The large main building has a spacious, open living room, library, bar, and a restaurant
offering high standard cuisine only a stone's throw from the dense jungle. Meals include
fresh tropical fruits and vegetables grown on the property.
Our ten cozy rooms have a private bath, hot water shower, tiled floor and ceiling fan.
While relaxing on the shady veranda, guests can enjoy a close up
view of the forest. The array of interesting birds, including parrots and
toucans, is stunning (over 200 species have been counted).
A crystal clear jungle stream flows through the naturally filtered swimming pool
and the beautifully landscaped tropical garden, which attracts a great variety of
wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, caymans and colorful butterflies. A 10 mile long
net-work of wellmarked trails departs directly behind the lodge. Guests can chose
between an easy walk of 30 minutes or more strenuous hikes of up to 5 hours, most
of which lead through fascinating, untouched primary forest.
