Guest reviews for Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge

5 out of 5

This is the place to get in touch with nature

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
I spent a couple of days at the Nicuesa Lodge and it was the most amazing place I've ever been to in Costa Rica. I wish I could've stay longer. This is the place to get in touch with nature and disconnect from the rest of the world. It's very peaceful. This is not a luxury resort, but everything is a 5 star hotel. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. The staff is amazing, very helpful. The food is incredible... I could go on and on writing about this beautiful place. Don't think twice about spending at least three nights or more and enjoy nature.

Worth it!

This property is remote in location but not as complicated to get there...Local flight from San Jose to either Golfito or Puerto Jimenez, and then a 30min boat ride. Completely ecological, you can do yoga, snorkel, kayak...the flora and fauna are spectacular. I loved the food and familiy style atmosphere. Be prepared for bugs, no way around it, take repellent for sure, beds have covers to protect you at night. I saw crocodiles, macaws, heard monkeys, many different bird species...it was definitely enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone. Once there you can be as adventurous as you wish!
