Casa Corcovado is located on the Osa Peninsula in southwestern Costa Rica. The 170-acre private reserve borders Corcovado National Park, the “crown jewel” in Costa Rica’s world-renowned national park system.
The jungle lodge offers the closest accommodation to the park. The bungalows are clustered on a hilltop high above the sea, surrounded by tropical gardens and rainforest.
Corcovado is the last remaining Pacific lowland rainforest of sustainable size in Central America, and has been called “the most biologically intense place on earth” by no less an authority than the National Geographic Society.
Here among Costa Rica’s largest trees can be found Central America’s densest populations of tapir, jaguar and scarlet macaws.
There are no roads to Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge; access is by boat only. Boats leave from our dock and reception centre, ‘La Hacienda’, on the banks of the river, in the town of Sierpe. From there, it is a 90-minute journey downriver, through the mangrove system, and then out into the Pacific, where we follow the coast to the hotel.
