CB! Approved Hotels and Resorts

One of National Geographic’s top 50 ecolodges in the world and a pioneer of its kind in Costa Rica, Lapa Rios offers families an unforgettable and educational adventure vacation experience. Set within a 1,000-acre private reserve of virgin rainforest in the Osa Peninsula, every moment at Lapa Rios is immersive, from howler monkey wake-up calls to lunch with eagles hunting from the restaurant’s deck. Accommodations are individual all-screen bungalow with incredible Pacific Ocean and jungle views. Exceptional in-house naturalists lead guests on an array of extraordinary activities to explore one of the most biodiverse places on the planet — day and night. The adjacent wild beach is popular for surfing (and kid-friendly surf lessons). Lapa Rios practices what they preach and is a model for sustainable practices at every level — understanding their mindful approach to tourism and community support is fascinating and part of the joy. The lodge is remote, but it’s worth it!
