Fodor's Expert Review Sarapiquís Rainforest Lodge

La Virgen de Sarapiquí, 17 km (11 miles) southwest of Puerto Viejo, Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, Heredia, 41002, Costa Rica

Within the Centro Neotrópico Sarapiquís, an environmental educational center and garden, you can stay the night inside indigenous-inspired circular palenque (huts) with palm-thatch roofs. The eco-friendly buildings reflect the center's commitment to sustainability, and for a fee guests have access to a botanical garden, forest preserve, and other facilities and nature-themed activities. Rooms are well sized and decorated with pre-Columbian-style art and wrought-iron furniture. Air-conditioning is an option here for an extra cost.
