Osa Peninsula Lodging

Hidden in the rainforest above a secluded and wild beach, El Remanso Lodge is situated on the Osa Peninsula Costa Rica, close to Puerto Jimenez. With its 185 acres of private reserve it is part of the Osa Peninsula National Refuge.
The owner-operated Osa Peninsula Lodging offers a total of 13 spacious units between cabins and rooms, offering an overall capacity for up to 30 guests. This enhances the small-scale character of the lodge, enabling a highly personalized service that has been highly recognized by our discerned guests over the years. No wonder that most of our guests have been recommended to stay with us by family or friends.
The property includes an extensive trail system, which lets you discover the magic of a primary rainforest and observe the abundant wildlife surrounding the lodge. Explore secluded waterfalls, take a stroll on a deserted beach with tide pools and a lagoon or wander next to exciting small creeks deep in rainforest canyons.
A big variety of activities can be enjoyed at the El Remanso Rainforest Wildlife Lodge with our highly knowledgeable guides: thrilling waterfall rappelling, early-morning birdwatching, guided interpretative hikes, a canopy tree platform tour or simply relax on the wooden deck of your cabin while watching monkeys swing through the surrounding trees! Outside excursions are offered by local guides and include dolphin-watching in the Golfo Dulce, horseback rides through the rainforest and beach, surfing on the famous Matapalo breaks or hiking on a day tour in the Corcovado National Park.
This Osa Peninsula Lodging was designed with strict ecological policies in mind and has been a pioneer in sustainable practices in the Osa Peninsula since its creation in 1999. The lodge was one of the first in Costa Rica to provide its electricity exclusively by its own micro-hydro system. We reduce our environmental impact by recycling our waste, we run our own composting system, treat waste waters and participate in local reforestation programs on the Osa Peninsula. El Remanso also has close ties with the community and provides work for more than 25 local staff all year around.
Thanks to all these efforts, in 2011 the Costa Rican Tourism Board awarded the lodge with the highest rating of the Certification For Sustainable Tourism (CST – level 5) in the lodge’s first certification process.
El Remanso is an ideal Osa Peninsula Lodge for active people who are interested in a unique experience within nature while respecting and protecting the environment. It is often picked as a honeymoon destination or a special family reunion for people who are interested in an active and unique experience in the rainforest.
