Follow the giant tapir footprint signs to this rustic lodge, reminiscent of an Adirondacks camp, within hiking distance of the western edge of Corcovado National Park. Kids of all ages will like the cabin-in-the-woods atmosphere, enhanced by creatively designed twig chairs and headboards, twisted-branch windows, and furniture made from tree stumps. The lodge offers accommodations to suit all budgets, from spacious forest cabins to a wheelchair-accessible master suite with
a spacious, semi-open bathroom that's paved with smooth river stones. Breakfast is included, and traditional Costa Rican meals are served in an alfresco restaurant. It's an 8-km hike to the park entrance but the lodge is working on providing transport, via a tractor pulling a cart, to get hikers to the park entrance, especially during rainy season. You can see much of the same wildlife by walking the trails of this 86-acre property.
