The King spreads his wings over El Remanso!

It might seem like an oxymoron, but the truth is undeniable: The handsome king vulture deserves his royal name! While grey headed and turkey vultures are widespread throughout the Americas, the King Vulture depends on very healthy forests to survive. It’s quite a treat that at El Remanso they are frequently spotted soaring above the canopy, or perched on a branch to dry out their wings, as seen in this picture taken yesterday by Dani from the restaurant deck. One thing's for sure: no carcass will last long once the king picks up its scent!

El Remanso scores highest rating in the Certification for Sustainable Tourism!

GREAT NEWS!!! We have just received the results from the Certification for Sustainable Tourism from the Costa Rican Tourism Board: El Remanso Lodge has been awarded with the "Level 5" of the Certification for Sustainable Tourism! This is the highest possible rating and El Remanso has achieved 100% of the points in the 4 areas of the evaluation. We're of course very excited and it represents a great reward for the hard work done by the whole El Remanso team in their different areas over the last few years!
