One of our favourite lodges in Costa Rica, the exceptionally well-run El Remanso lodge combines comfortable accommodation, value for money, beautiful setting and exceptional guides. You do not have to venture far from the lodge to find pristine jungle trails filled with monkeys, sloths and myriad birds, and in between wildlife walks you can relax by the swimming pool or venture down a steep trail to a rugged cove. Other activities can be arranged that take you further beyond the immediate vicinity of the lodge such as dolphin watching cruises, surfing lessons, horse riding, kayaking and waterfall rappelling. (Typical tour prices here are around $35 per person for guided jungle walks and up to $75 per person for boat cruises and rappelling). A stay at El Remanso offers a truly superb experience of the Osa Peninsula and its wildlife.
