I recently stayed at Lapa Rios with my husband. We had never considered eco-tourism before, but we are converts! You are constantly serenaded by the sounds of the wild - we loved watching the toucans, monkeys, and macaws outside of our beautiful private bungalow. We had an amazing time on the guided tours as well - all the guides are extremely knowledgeable, and each trip is completely different. We especially loved the waterfalls hike, where you hike through streams and go swimming under waterfalls in the jungle. The hotel owns so much property and provides so many interesting activities as well as numerous look out points and tranquil places to just enjoy nature. Everything was so beautiful and remote, easily the best kept secret in Costa Rica!
