Encanta La Vida Rainforest Lodge is an eco hotel located on a lush and tropical 3.5 hectares, backed by the Corcovado National Park, in Cabo Matapalo on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. We are proud to have been the first hotel established in this exotic part of Costa Rica. We remain committed to providing unique and adventurous travel options in the comfort of an intimate, beautiful tropical jungle lodge.
The lodge property stretches from the shores of Pan Dulce beach to a virgin jungle backdrop. Our beach is accessed through a trail that weaves through Cacao (chocolate) trees and mango trees and lands you at our beachfront shower. We offer a variety of accommodation options to suit any taste and group size: whether you are looking for accommodations for a few nights, or a beach vacation rental, you'll find the comfort you are looking for at Encanta La Vida.
Wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys that live in abundance on our private reserve. Daily visits from Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, 4 types of monkeys and many other types of exotic wildlife will be seen throughout the day. Fall asleep with a symphony of sounds - rolling surf, musical secadas (the jungle).
The Lodge was designed to offer comfort and amenities in a private, interactive, intimate environment. Enjoy dining in our new open air kitchen and rancho dining room. Grab a coldy from the bar and enjoy star gazing from our star gazing deck. Or shop for Costa Rican treasures from our very own gift shop. Or just kick back in a hammock and take it all in.
The main lodge of Encanta La Vida consists of a large open-aired kitchen and dining area, a gift shop, office, bathroom, and living room. There are also 3 spacious outdoor patios - a star gazing deck, a deck overlooking the garden and a deck with hammocks.
