SarapiquiS Rainforest Lodge

Where Nature meets Culture

SarapiquiS Rainforest Lodge, built as a 15th century Pre-Columbian village, is – due to its outstanding concept in ecotourism and cultural indigenous conservation – an international rewarded model in tourism.

We kindly invite you to share our exquisite designed and comfortable ecolodge with its exquisite decor: antiques, garden fresh flowers, and an overall Hispanic Colonial and Indigenous atmosphere. It is unique in its kind. The restaurant and its romantic terrace reveal sweeping views of the Sarapiqui River and the Rainforest below and the inviting Votos Waterfall and Pool, only 15 yards away.  Moreover, you can marvel at our unique archaeological park “Alma Ata” with centuries old tombs, our Museum of Indigenous Cultures with its fabulous collection and its Rainforest Film Theater, and our botanical garden “Chester’s Field” with its valuable collection of medicinal herbs.

SarapiquiS Rainforest Lodge is more than a hotel, it is a total experience.

We appreciate for sharing your time, your vision and spirit with us.
