The Southern Pacific Coast

Hotels in The Southern Pacific Coast

There’s almost no better place see Costa Rica’s incredible wildlife (monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and more than 350 species of birds) than from this 21-acre rainforest property on the edge of Manuel Antonio National Park. The perks?

If the idea of open-sided, thatched-roof bungalows with netted teak beds, private decks with hammocks, and secluded outdoor showers stirs you, you’ll get your fix here.

The Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge is located on the Osa Peninsula, on the southern Pacific side of Costa Rica. The hotel is an eco lodge, providing guests with unparalleled access to the rainforest, the ocean, and the wildlife that inhabits the area.

Set in what National Geographic calls one of the most biologically intense places on earth, the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp houses its guests in full-size tents on the yellow sand beaches of Caletas.

Extravagant ocean views are de rigueur at this 800-acre hillside establishment near the less- traveled Panamanian border. Owner and environmental activist Peter Aspinall has helped reintroduce the scarlet macaw to the area.
