State-of-the-art contemporary cabins in dwarf forest shading a sinuous river canyon offers active adventures and a wellness spa.

Rio Perdido, or ‘lost river’, winds its way through a range of craggy hills cloaked in dwarf woodland, where scrubby trees and bushes, verdant with bright green foliage only in the wet season, shelter this wonderful new concept in accommodation.

This lodge is not just a place to sleep, although the 20 award-winning cabins, minimalist in aspect but fully equipped with up-to-date technology such as  flat screen TV, music docks, iron, free Wifi, new generation air conditioning and coffee maker, may tempt you just to hang out and relax.  Both a range of professionally supervised active adventures and a fully comprehensive spa enhance your experience here.  

Whizz down one of the world’s most exciting ziplines over the  Caño Blanco river’s deep natural canyon, climb and rappel the vertical cliffs, hike any of the myriad of trails on the property, go mountain-biking or white-water tubing, all within the reserve itself. Follow this up with a mud bath massage or aromatherapy before enjoying a substantial dinner in the on-site restaurant.
