The most upscale of the Osa Peninsula eco-lodges, Lapa Ríos is set in a 988-acre rain-forest reserve with a virtually private beach and first-rate trails (on-site tours include binoculars and boots). Families should note, however, the property has no air-conditioning or television, and only very limited access to phones and Internet. Guests staying at one of 17 bungalows are instead encouraged to appreciate and connect with nature: sip a cup of coffee (local beans are delivered to your room every morning) on your private deck, and look out for toucans on your way to breakfast.
