Representing its strive for ecotourism, Costa Rica offers plenty of environmentally friendly lodging options in the form of eco-lodges, which could range from pitching a tent or staying in luxurious accommodations. Whatever your choice, you can rest assured knowing that you are helping preserve and protect the land surrounding you.


Despite its focus on research, the Organization for Tropical Studies has three facilities across Ecuador with cabins and houses: La Selva, Las Cruces and Palo Verde. Each offers educational workshops and activities to get you closer with nature. With a great view of the ocean, La Paloma eco-lodge is located in the Costa Rican Drake Bay on more than 20 acres of land that is animated by the sounds of birds and wildlife that inhabit the nearby rainforest. As a luxury lodge, you have the options of guide tours and relaxing massages, as well scuba diving and whale-watching tours.


If you like to plan your trips around nature's calendar, the Tortuga Lodge & Gardens is located near a prime sea turtle nesting spot. Nesting occurs between July and October. The lodge also has guided tours of the backwater creeks in the lowland tropical rainforest. The Selva Bananito eco-lodge, which can be found in the Talamanca Mountains region, has been named one of the best in Costa Rica. The lodge was built entirely of recycled waste wood and was the first to use solar-heated water. Visitors can birdwatch, horseback ride or be adventurous with rappelling waterfalls and canopies. The Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is a remote travel destination that can only be reached by boat. For those looking to be active, they offer all sorts of recreational activities such as kayaking and rainforest hiking. Others wishing to relax, you can practice yoga or nap in a hammock in a tree-top lodge. The lodge is surrounded by green vegetation and offers a great escape.
