Easy to reach from Uvita (approx. 10 driving minutes to town). Very nice property with a couple of double-bungalows in the garden, that offer all the basics you need. It's great to sit on the terrace and just watch the birds in the jungle and listen to the sounds of nature. Peter and Marja give you all the advise and...

We live in Heredia and went for the “festival de Ballenas” to Uvita. We choose for this Lodge because of all the good reviews. The lodge is located in the jungle but fortunately not too far away from the beaches. It is really a special place. Our room was located in a beautiful garden with an amazing mountain view. We...

On our way to Corcovado we stayed at La Cacatua Lodge. It was absolutely the best place where we stayed on our trip in Costa Rica, thanks to Tripadvisor. At the day of arrival the owners welcomed us with a nice free drink of the house. The hotel has nice cabins with beautiful decorated and clean rooms. There is a...

The lodging is top notch in quality. Very nice comfy beds and pillows, solft towels and a superb bathroom, all very well decorated, located on a hillside. The lodges all have their own path to them, so very private. On top of that they come with a small fridge that is very useful for cooling your drinks for a trip...

It took us a long time to find this place as the signage is minimal. It's up a long dirt road which was a bit scary at night in our 2-wheel drive car. The owners are friendly, and grounds are pretty. The room itself was just ok. It was attractive enough, but smelled of mildew and had no AC. It's...
