El Chontal Ecolodge (Rincon de Osa)

Golfo Dulce

Location Overview

This family owned, operated, designed and built environmentally friendly Eco Lodge sits right on the beach and serves as a perfect landing point after a long kayaking stretch. The property’s rustic and quirky decoration and design will certainly make you smile. Trails and communal areas such as the pavilion for relaxing and the waterfront platform for yoga and reading add to this lodge’s charm. Delicious traditional meals with home grown ingredients served on location.

Sea Kayaking is superb here, as it's protected by a little bay within the Golfo Dulce, offering a calm, glass-like water surface perfect for easy paddling. Float along the rainforest coastline, home to Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, and Howler Monkeys. This is really a birder's paradise as you can enter the Mangrove Estuary, and looping river by kayak to spot tons of colorful, singing tropical birds.
