A remote luxury lodge with colonial-style bungalows, Casa Corcovado is set in lovely private grounds in a prime location bordering the national park.
Standing in 68 hectares of extensive lowland tropical rainforest beside Corcovado National Park, the property was designed by an American naturalist and has been constructed with the highest environmental concern. There is no road access – you can only get here by a one and a half hour boat trip through the largest mangrove system of the Pacific coast – which ensures both privacy and tranquillity.
14 individual bungalows offer unpretentious comfort with mosquito-netted beds, ceiling fan, lounge area, large private bathroom with shower, safe deposit box and hammocks. Facilities include a casually elegant restaurant that uses many locally-grown ingredients, a bar surrounded by rainforest and fruit trees that attract birds and animals, two swimming pools - one fed by a natural spring, plus another larger, solar-powered pool - and a gift shop. The lodge is adjacent to half a kilometre of sandy beach which has secret bat caves, cool waterfalls, and an orchid trail. You can have lunch served in your own screened cabana on the beach, where your personal waiter will serve delicious meals accompanied by chilled French wine.
Activities include hiking, birding, diving, snorkelling, horse riding, visits to Cano Island Biological Reserve, plus mangrove tours searching for monkeys, snakes, crocodiles and birds.
The accommodation is closed between mid-September and mid-November.
