Our Costa Rica ecolodge was built to be a small 14+2 bungalow project providing protection to over 1,000 acres of rainforest.
The ecolodge maintains architectural integrity with the surrounding area and local styles and utilizes sustainable construction methods and materials. We are vigilant in energy conservation through passive design and renewable sources and use a sustainable approach to chemical use, waste, sewage, recycling and water management. We pay attention and respect the wildlife and the natural setting.
The ecolodge is a Private Nature Preserve, Reforestation Project and Model Demonstration of Ecotourism and Sustainable Development. The 1000-acre area is a wildlife corridor and protective barrier for the 100,000-acre Corcovado National Park. It contains some of the last remaining tropical lowland rain forest existing in in Costa Rica and Central America. It has birds, trees and plants found nowhere else in the world.
The project has successfully protected 1,000 acres of mostly primary rainforest from logging and uncontrolled development making it a sanctuary for a variety of plants and animals. Access to the interior of the 1,000-acre private reserve is by professional guide only. Volunteer reforestation program utilizing guests to plant native trees as a tour they can select.
We place a great emphasis on educating guests, staff and locals on natural and cultural issues. We employ only local staff in all operations and currently employ about 50 people.
