El Remanso

Last updated: 31 December, 2023

Stays at Remanso are all about losing yourself in nature. One of Costa Rica’s wildest stretches of rainforest sits outside your villa door and a pristine Pacific beach is a stroll away.

Palm-thatch villas in rich hardwoods perch on a hillside; The best have sweeping forest and ocean views from the luxurious king sizes, with generous plunge pool terraces outside.

The lodge keeps environmental impact to a minimum: recycling, running on renewable energy and gathering fallen wood to maintain and build cabins.

Surrounding area

Sitting over El Matapalo surf beach with its back to Corcovado National Park – one of the country’s most extensive stretches of protected tropical forest – El Remanso is immersed in nature. There’s lots to do if you love the wild – swim, surf, watch toucans and tanagers in the trees, wander the hotel’s forest trails or take guided wildlife hikes into the national park.
