<p>Costa Rica’s forests hold an array of flora and fauna so vast and diverse that scientists haven’t even named thousands of the species found here. The country covers less than 0.03% of the Earth’s surface, yet it contains nearly 5% of the planet’s plant and animal species. What better way to see all this wonderful country has to offer, and help to keep it green by supporting sustainable tourism, than to stay at one of Costa Rica’s best eco lodges.</p>

Interesting list and quite useful as we plan our third vacation to Costa Rica. Based on our wonderful experiences in this magical country I must wholeheartedly agree with the inclusion of Lapa Rios and Si Como No but I must point out a few glaring omissions... Selva Bananito Lodge (www.selvabananito.com), a hidden little gem. Humble with rich in charm and with an impeccable five-leaf sustainability rating. El Silencio Lodge & Spa (www.elsilenciolodge.com), another five-leaf property that perfectly combines luxurious wellness with the preservation of a pristine tropical forest. And the Punta Islita hotel (www.hotelpuntaislita.com) where we were able to share meaningful exchanges with local artists thanks to their ground-breaking community art museum program. Overall, it is exciting to learn about sustainable travel leaders in Costa Rica. Thanks for the article!
