Esquinas Rainforest Lodge has been described by guests as "pure magic", ''a secret treasure'', "absolutely spectacular" and as ''the loveliest place in Central America''. It has become the perfect jungle retreat for ecotourist visitors seeking adventure off the beaten track.

The hotel accommodations have a native rancho style with a roof made from 70,000 palm fronds and it features a spacious, open living room, library, bar, an haut cuisine restaurant, a chlorine-free pool fed by a crystal-clear jungle stream, beautifully landscaped tropical gardens which attract more than 200 species of birds, colorful butterflies, coatis, monkeys, iguanas, and many other animals plus a 10-mile long network of well-marked trails, most of which lead through fascinating, untouched primary forest.
14 standard rooms: which offer a private bathroom with hot water shower, ceiling fan, full screening and a terrace.
