Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge

South Pacific

Rating: Mid-range    

Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge overview

The lodge is set in 170 acres of private grounds and offers high quality accommodation. Being the closest lodge to the national park, it is the perfect place from which to go hiking, bird watching and horse riding, and also offers a range of water-based activities.

Accommodation is in bungalows scattered throughout the gardens. These are homely, with mosquito-netted beds, large windows with wooden blinds and shutters, tiled floors and wooden furniture. You'll have your own sitting area complete with a wooden chest stocked with drinks, as well as an en-suite bathroom, and there are chairs and hammocks on the veranda. Bungalows vary in size, sleeping between two to four people, while each of the junior suites has a spacious entrance hall and living room with a sofa bed.

Los Vitrales restaurant is a light, high-ceilinged room where you'll be served tasty traditional dishes. There is a thatched, open-sided bar nearby, plus another high on the hill where you'll see fabulous sunsets.

There are two swimming pools, one in the heart of the complex with a sundeck and waterfall feature, and the other a short walk away in a secluded forest setting. There's a small beach near the lodge and staff are happy to arrange transport for you. Other facilities include a massage service, gift shop selling camera batteries and sun cream as well as handicrafts, WiFi internet access and a laundry service.


Open: Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge is open all year.

Location: Casa Corcovado borders the Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula and is set in 170 acres of rainforest overlooking a beach. Access is by boat as there are no roads to the lodge. Boats leave from La Hacienda in the town of Sierpe each day for the 90-minute cruise to the lodge.

Rooms: There are 3 styles of bungalows: honeymoon suites are the smallest, deluxe bungalows, and junior suites. All are made out pf local materials and decorated in a similar fashion, with tiled floors, wooden beamed ceilings and large windows. They're cooled by ceiling fans and the beds come complete with mosquito nets. There's ample storage space, a safe, minibar (pay locally), 24-hour electricity and an outdoor seating area. Each has its own bathroom with hot and cold water. Honeymoon suites have an opulent outdoor shower as well as an indoor shower. The larger deluxe rooms can cater for families. The 2 interconnecting junior suites are also ideal for families or groups of friends, and each has a good-sized sitting room.

Activities: From here you can go hiking in the national park, take specialist bird watching walks and night walks, go horse riding, explore Claro del Bosque and visit the beach at San Josecito. Water-based activities include snorkelling, diving, kayaking, boating through the mangroves and go fishing.

Facilities: Los Vitrales restaurant serves top quality meals including traditional Costa Rican dishes. El Bosque bar is in the rainforest, so you watch monkeys and birds as you sip a drink. There's a lounge where you can play a game of pool, read up on the local area or simple sit and chat. Outdoors there are 2 swimming pools, one centrally located and the other a short walk away in the forest. Margarita Sunset Point has superb views over the ocean and, as the name suggests, is the place to it and watch the sun go down each evening. The lodge provides transport to and from the local beach where there are loungers, parasols and hammocks. On site there's a massage room. The shop stocks T-shirts, sandals, sunhats, sunblock, toiletries, camera film and wildlife identification charts. The lodge offers a laundry service. Dining: Meals are eaten at separate tables.

Children of all ages are welcome. The deluxe bungalows and interconnecting suites can make good family accommodation.

Health: There is only a low risk of malaria in Costa Rica.

Communication: There is WiFi internet access by the main pool and in the lounge.

Mr. Peter Cannell

"This was probably the highlight of the trip. Wonderful location. However, could we suggest that you do not book the Cano Island boat tour as a matter of course? It is not really an island visit, it is a snorkelling trip. All 3 of us booked on it on the day we went (all from tribes) would have preferred another walking tour. "

Mr. J R
"Extraordinary setting in jungle Lots of wildlife sightings and incidents The approach by sea and river wonderful Meet and greet by guide exceptional"
Mrs. Joanna Hoggard (12/03/2019)
"A fabulous location and facilities. The attention to detail in our spacious accommodation and surrounding area was exceptional. I would highly recommend this Lodge. There is plenty of walks, a beautiful beach (no swimming) and island close by to visit for snorkeling and bathing. Saw dolphins. "
Mrs. Lisa Chambers (14/03/2019)
"A beautiful location and unspoilt. The 2 hour boat trip was more like a 2 hour speed boat adrenaline hit and not for those that do not like boats!! The hike was just about achievable as it was 100 degrees and so humid! The snorkeling was good although we were one of about 5 boats at the island. Food and accommodation of a very high standard. A must for a visit to Costa Rica!"
Mrs. Hermione Salwey
"Wonderful trip to get there. Arrived to a tractor to pull us up the steep track to the Lodge. Very good welcome, teams of men to lug the luggage. Large well spaced bungalows, comfortable, but not palatial, lovely outdoor shower under the stars! Good food, dinner for all at 7pm which made for speedy service. Good guides, birds and animals. Enjoyed trip to Caco Island but sad that there were a number of other boats and paradise island was shared with several others. C'est la vie I suppose."
