This lodge is located by two converging canyons and rivers, the Rio Perdido and Rio Blanco, a spot that had long been bypassed. Surveying the site, the lodge's owners were inspired to build Rio Perdido, and now you, too, can discover this beautiful place.

The lodge has been sensitively designed to cause minimal impact on its surroundings. Bungalows are built on platforms set high above the ground, reached by raised walkways. Constructed of steel and wood they have a strikingly modern appearance, and inside they are cosy and comfy. Each has a bedroom with twin beds that be joined to form a double, and with room for an additional bed, a stylish bathroom, and terrace with chairs and hammocks. There's a minibar cum hot drinks maker, TV, safe, free WiFi and air conditioning.

The open-sided restaurant serves a mix of traditional and modern cuisines and has panoramic views of the densely forested canyon walls and river below, while special dinners are served on the lodge's Floating Platform, set almost 50 metres above the rivers' meeting point, under the starry sky.

By day you can explore the reserve, on foot or by mountain bike, go river tubing and enjoy the canyon adventure with its mixture of zip lines, Tarzan swings and platforms. Afterwards you can relax with a visit to the spa or by bathing in one of the thermal pools.

Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews

Hotel rooms are bungalows on stilts - nicely set out in the hotel grounds. The rooms are modern and well designed. The main hotel building has a spectacular restaurant at tree canopy level - open to the elements at the front so you can watch the wildlife close up and enjoy the cooling breezes. Hotel food and amenities all excellent - pricier than in town locations reflecting the location and service quality. Lovely pools and outside bar. Walking trails within the grounds are a bonus and the highlight is the thermal river and bathing pools.
