La Paloma Lodge

La Paloma Lodge is one of our favorite Costa Rica luxury ecolodges located at Drakes Bay on the south Pacific Coast of the Osa Peninsula. It is especially ideal for Costa Rica family vacations and for Costa Rica honeymoons. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the offshore Caño Island, La Paloma Lodge is built within twelve richly landscaped acres and surrounded by dense tropical rainforest rich with wildlife. The sights and sounds of the jungle surround you on a Costa Rica adventure tour to La Paloma Lodge. From each rancho it is possible to see and hear plenty of wildlife: monkeys, sloth, scarlet macaws, toucans, hummingbirds, and many other birds, as well as butterflies galore including the amazing Blue Morpho.

Seven deluxe ranchos are spread out amongst lush vegetation maximizing privacy and seclusion. Each rancho is perched on points overlooking the vast Pacific. Prevailing westerly trade winds cool the open-air ranchos creating ideal sleeping conditions on your Costa Rica adventure tour lulling you to sleep by the rhythm of the surf and awakening you by the symphony of the rainforest. Each cabana has an artistically tiled private bath, expansive balconies with hammocks, varnished hardwood floors, and a breathtaking view of the Pacific. La Paloma Lodge faces west, the perfect direction to catch a magnificent sunset over Caño Island. Five of the ranchos are large enough to sleep a family of five with a wrap-around porch and a second double bed in the loft. Four standard rooms are also available.

There are so many activities to do on a Costa Rica adventure tour at La Paloma Lodge including daily excursions such as whale watching, snorkeling and optional scuba diving at Caño Island, guided hikes in the Corcovado National Park, horseback riding, and easy kayaking in the river behind La Paloma Lodge. And, don't miss the nocturnal rainforest walk with "The Bug Lady," which is a real hit on Costa Rica family tours! The beach is a short walk down the hill, La Paloma has nice pool, and you can walk to the small village nearby to mingle with the locals or even take in a little rural Tico night life! 

The cuisine on this Costa Rica eco tour is delicious from jumbo shrimp to filet mignon, fresh caught fish, and always vegetarian options. Enjoy a cocktail at sunset and dinners can always be accompanied by a glass of wine and fresh tropical juices are served with all meals.
