Break the Fast

There are few more memorable meals than dining on the balcony terrace of this lodge surrounded by nature overlooking the primary rainforest and bay of the Osa Peninsula. Listen to Howler monkeys and watch Red macaws streak across the canopy or toucans in the trees.

Great food is an essential part of an enjoyable, extraordinary experience, and sustainable means local, traditional and often indigenous.  Savour fresh fruit juice and plates, or traditional Gallo Pinto (rice and beans with Tico flavorings) or Pupusa (corn tortillas with beans, cheese and chicharrones -fried pork rinds). Get a taste of the Costa Rican rainforest >
