Jungle Packages
Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Special
4 (Days / 3 Nights)

Lush, green vegetation as far as the eye can see, with leaves as big as elephant ears. Jade colored water. Toucans, monkeys, iguanas, dolphins, majestic blue butterflies - all are here at Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge, in Golfo Dulce, Costa Rica. Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge embraces conservation and harmony with the natural environment, and offers a perfect blend of comfort with environmental preservation. This wilderness lodge is sensitively designed with the environment and constructed from naturally fallen trees, recycled materials and harnesses the natural energy from the sun to provide electricity. And, after a day of playing hard, enjoy the rainforest from hammock in our uniquely designed tree-top level lodge, or retreat to the private terrace of your deluxe cabin. Before savoring the fabulous tropical-Latino inspired dinner, join others for appetizers under the thatch roof candlelit bar.
