South Pacific - Golfo Dulce
Playa Cativo

Set in the heart of Costa Rica’s Rainforest on the coast of Golfo Dulce, Playa Cativo is a new luxury eco lodge offering exquisite accommodations in true harmony with nature. Accessible only by boat, its 1000 acres of private rainforest reserve are surrounded by Piedras Blancas National Park, a natural corridor between La Amistad and Corcovado National Parks. The waters in front of the Lodge are also part of the protected area and home to the needlefish spawning which occurs every month for three days.  Playa Cativo’s design compliments the natural surroundings of the rainforest, stunning grounds and oceanfront setting. The exclusive eco lodge offers seven beachfront guestrooms, including an inviting private casita nestled on the beach, a gourmet farm-to-table restaurant, and many ocean and rainforest activities. The different eco-systems, including wetlands, allow guests to consistently observe a large and diverse variety of birds and animals in a relatively small area.

Designed to get the most of the surrounded environment, all guestrooms are steps from the beach and has view of the ocean. Their open style allows the cool breeze of the rainforest and Gulf to flow through them. The precious woods have been treated to offer smooth and clean surfaces.  Deluxe guestrooms feature: Ocean view King-size bed with deluxe mattress and hypo allergenic pillows Coach or sofa bed Two ceiling fans Handcrafted tiled bathroom with rain shower Cotton bathrobes Room safe Wi-Fi Luxury guestrooms feature the same as deluxe plus larger room and bathroom space, and amazing view of the rainforest.
