Eco Resorts in Costa Rica

Eco Resorts in Costa Rica
With yearly visitors totaling two million, Costa Rica is Central America's most popular tourist destination. Located on the isthmus between Nicaragua and Panama, this latter-day Eden is known as the greenest country on the globe and is striving to become the first carbon neutral nation. Costa Rica is home to some of the world's finest eco-resorts, where you can experience 5-star luxury in the midst of this pristine tropical paradise.

Luna Lodge

For the truly adventurous outdoorsman, Luna Lodge has modern, comfortable accommodations. Located in the Osa Peninsula, not far from Corcovada National Park, the resort offers a number of housing options for guests, with everything from jungle bungalows to stand-up tents.

The theme of Luna Lodge is sustainability, so it is no surprise that much of the food served in the El Eclipse Total restaurant is grown right on the property. Designed as a retreat for both the body and the mind, there are no televisions in guestrooms, and Luna's staff teaches daily yoga classes.

Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation and Inn

Finca Blanca is the synthesis of opulence and environmental responsibility. Though not far from the San Jose airport, the hotel is tucked back into the countryside with not a chain restaurant or hotel in sight. Aside from lodging, the resort is also a working organic coffee plantation and provides daily tours and samplings for the guests.

For those who need more than just a warm bed and a breathtaking view, Finca Blanca is also a veritable playground for the active traveler; the resort has horseback-riding, canopy tours, hiking, and white water rafting excursions. And there's no need to head back into San Jose for dinner - the El Tigre Vestidio Restaurant serves local, organic cuisine all day.

Lapa Rios Rainforest Ecolodge

Situated on the Pacific coast in Puntarenas, Lapa Rios is on the cutting edge of eco-tourism and proves that protecting the environment does mean sacrificing guest comfort. Lapa Rios has 16 thatched bungalows with bamboo furniture and floors, solar-heated showers, and sundecks with hammocks overlooking the sparkling ocean vista. The hotel's restaurant, Brisa Azul, is staffed entirely by locals and the menu changes based on season and crop availability; their unique and collaborative dishes have even led to a cookbook.
