Following a brief flight to Sierpe, you board a motor boat for a 90-minute trip through the largest mangrove forest system on the Pacific coast to this well-appointed lodge. It sits at the entrance to Corcovado National Park, home to 350 different bird species and numerous mammals, including endangered species such as the puma.
Although not ocean-facing, the Casa Corcovado's ten individually styled cabins (including family options) are surrounded by the boundless beauty of a biological system that has been protected since 1975.
Rooms have ceiling fan, tiled floors, lounge area and beds draped with mosquito netting. The spacious bathrooms have hot water showers and all cabins have wooden shutters and stained glass windows.
The rooms are set back from the beach with wildlife right on your doorstep. There is a spring-fed pool nestled in the forest beside a small stream, plus a lounge and dining area.
