Nestled at the heart of the Costa Rican jungle lies a secluded paradise called the Sabalo Lodge. It is home to monkeys, toucans, frogs and morpho butterflies living alongside human residents of a nearby village More and travelers in search of a unique experience. Clustered in the mangroves, the Eco-Lodge sits next to the winding Sierpe River, which makes its way through the Osa Peninsula and joins the Pacific Ocean rimmed by a gleaming sandy beach. Like no other hotel of its kind, Sabalo Lodge has committed to providing a sustainable recreational experience, offering guests an outstanding array of activities which tread lightly on the local ecosystem.
