"Encanta La Vida" is spanish for "enchanted life" or literally translated to mean "loving life".
Encanta La Vida isn't just a lodge - it's an experience. Our goal is to share with all the wonders of the jungle and the warm hospitality of local Costa Rican culture - all in a comfortable relaxed environment. For those seeking privacy and relaxation, it can be had. For those interested in an immersion into jungle life and local culture, you will be surrounded by it.
The area at that time was just being discovered, as literally a 'gold mine'. Many foreign firms mined and logged the wealth of the land on the Osa until 1975 when the entire west coast was declared the CorcovadoNational Park. This 43.735-hectare Park encompasses 13 major ecosystems, ranging from sea level to 745 meters.
We are proud to offer an adventure lodging in what National Geographic refers to as "...one of the most biologically intense areas on earth."
