Located on Costa Rica's southwest Pacific side of the Osa Peninsula, this area is well known as one of the world's most pristine and biodiverse rainforests. El Remanso Lodge 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 over 30 local staff all year around.
We loved our time at El Remanso and hope to be back soon!
