T21 Rainforest Adventure / Esquinas Lodge - 3 days

Esquinas Rainforest Lodge is a tropical paradise in the remote jungle of southern Costa Rica, surrounded by the untouched wilderness of new Piedras Blancas National Park which is part of the Osa conservations area. It was financed by the government of Austria as part of a model project combining development aid, nature conservation, and rainforest research. All profits go to the local community. The biodiversity of Costa Rica‘s newest, remotest and least known national park, Piedras Blancas, is one of the highest in all of Central America. Esquinas Rainforest Lodge, nestled in the lush, thick forest, is the ideal base for excursions into the dense jungle, which has hardly been explored or researched, a perfect jungle retreat for eco-tourists seeking adventure off the beaten track. Each of the ten cozy rooms of Esquinas Lodge has a private bath, hot water shower, tiled floor and ceiling fan. While relaxing on the shady veranda, guests can enjoy a close-up view of the forest. The array of exotic birds, including parrots and toucans, is stunning (over 200 species have been counted). The large main building has a spacious, open living room, library, bar, and a restaurant offering high-standard cuisine only a stone‘s throw from the dense jungle. A crystal-clear jungle stream flows through the naturally-filtered swimming pool and the beautifully landscaped tropical garden, which attracts a great variety of wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, caymans and colorful butterflies. A 10-mile long network of well-marked trails departs directly behind the lodge. A true, unforgettable rainforest adventure, don’t miss it!
