Playa Nicuesa’s location is amazingly unique: Pristine, Private, and Beautiful! Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is a 165-acre private preserve located within the Golfo Dulce/Osa Peninsula region which has been called one of the most biologically diverse places on the earth. This area contains Central America’s largest remaining Pacific Coast rainforest.

Playa Nicuesa is a road less mecca for nature lovers and adventure sports enthusiasts of all levels.

A unique adventure travel destination: lush, green vegetation as far as the eye can see, with leaves as big as elephant ears and jade coloured water. Toucans, monkeys, iguanas, dolphins, majestic blue butterflies – all are here at Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge,  a real Costa Rica Eco Lodge in Golfo Dulce.

If physical challenge is what you want… it’s here. If rest and relaxation is what you need… it’s here. And everything in between! We are a destination lodge that offers kayaking, fishing, snorkelling, rain forest hiking, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, and yoga practice right out our doorstep.

Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge embraces conservation and harmony with nature, and offers a perfect blend of comfort with environmental preservation.

This unique Costa Rica eco lodge is sensitively designed with the environment and constructed from naturally fallen trees, recycled materials and harnesses the natural energy from the sun to provide electricity.

And, after a day of playing hard, stretch out with our yoga classes and enjoy the rainforest from a hammock in our uniquely designed tree-top level lodge, or retreat to the private terrace of your deluxe cabin. Before savouring the fabulous tropical-Latino inspired dinner menu (children’s menu available), join others for appetizers under the thatch roof candlelit bar.

What also makes Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge so unique, pristine and private is that the lodge is accessible only by boat. Dramatic views of the mountains surrounding the Pacific Coast gulf welcome you to the lodge as you approach by boat. Once you arrive at the lodge, lose yourself in the tropical paradise that surrounds you, and let the adventure begin!

Our Opinion 

Breathtakingly beautiful location….. The natural beauty of this place is what makes it special. The lodge is completely isolated and cut off from everything which makes this place unique. Only the sounds of the rainforest and the ocean can be heard. The staff are amazing and cater for your every need. The food is delicious, fresh and well presented. The day tours are well worth it. Expect to be actually living amongst nature…… constantly…..even in your room you won’t be alone! Would highly recommend a visit.

The mango house is great choice for friends or families that want to be close, but also have the privacy of their own room with private bathroom. Also great for single travelers or those who are a bit worried about staying in the jungle, as the mango rooms are more in an open area then the private cabins that are nestled into the rainforest. Also fantastic for parties about 6-10 that want to rent all 4 rooms at once.
