Description:

The Lodge is a private nature reserve protecting around 300 hectares of tropical lowland primary rainforest, secondary forest, fruit trees, extensive helicona-field and pasture which partly is being let naturally overgrown and partly used to plant more fruit trees. The main part of the lodge property is virgin primary rainforest and lies within the Piedras Blancas National Park. 

At the plane area of the lodge site some 30 years ago native families were planting bananas, maize and cacao for their living. In those years they had lots of hunting dogs and were accustomed to get their fresh meat out of the forest. Thanks to the conservation efforts of the Lodge and nearby neighbors the hunting has almost diminished and it is remarkable how the wildlife has recovered over the past years within the area of Playa San Josecito. 

The Lodge only offers ecological tours in small groups such as jungle hikes through primary and secondary forest and boat tours to the mangroves of the Esquinas River accompanied by a guide. A self-guided tour with an informative description of the most interesting plants growing along the path leads to a safe observation platform at the rainforest edge. There are educational hangouts about local traditions, the release project nearby as well as about flora and fauna in a small ranchito and a comprehensive library.

Our Mission

Conserving part of the last remaining primary lowland rainforest existing in Central America with one of the richest plant diversification on earth in a yet almost unknown area of Costa Rica.
Protection of Wildlife

Sustainable management and maintenance of the lodge without negative impact to the environment.
Education and motivation of staff as well as guests to respect natural resources and nature.
Assisting local conservation efforts.
 
Our Actions and Activities

Minimizing any negative impact to the environment that still may exist and assisting a group of local women to establish a first recycling project in Golfito soonest possible. By cleaning the town of Golfito, entering point of most of the lodge clients, and its surroundings, Golfito’s image and sanity would improve and pave the way for the eco-tourism sector creating more jobs and income to the benefit of the local communities.
