Main entrance Tree House Lodge, Manzanillo Limon

Going to the rainforest is one of the best parts of visiting Costa Rica, so why not sleep in one? No, you don't have to climb up into the canopy and cuddle with the sloths (although, that'd be fun, wouldn't it?). There are plenty of beautiful, trendy and chic tree house hotels that will give you a whole new outlook of the beautiful Costa Rican landscape. Come hop along with me and I'll share some of my favorite Costa Rica hotels that are just above ground!

Tree House Lodge

Located in the South Caribbean coast, the Tree House Lodge sits on 10 acres of lush rainforest within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge in Limon. Do you like to splish and splash in the water? No need to fret, you can go straight from the trees to the shoreline of Punta Uva beach on the property. The tranquil and serene atmosphere is ideal if you're looking to just get away from it all. You can go surfing, white water rafting or on a canopy tour if you're in the mood for a little adventure, but then you can bring it all back to center with some on-site yoga. There are several suites to choose from including the beach, tree and garden.

Lapa Rios Eco Lodge

Want to look out your window to crystal clear blue waters or lush greenery? Lapa Rios eco lodge is one of the most luxurious and visually stunning accommodations - it is, after all, on the Osa Penninsula. Here you can wake up to an open-air room with a large porch that's perfect for sipping morning coffee or nighttime cocktails. Set in a private reserve that stretches for more than 1,000 acres, Lapa Rios is ideal for wildlife lovers, honeymooners, adventurers, beach bums and everyone else in between. Keep an eye out for the beautiful Scarlet Macaw, which this resort is named after!

Costa Rica is unlike any other place, so why not embrace that culture to the fullest? Staying in tree house hotels will not only give you a bird's eye view of the rainforest, but it will put you more in touch with nature. How do you like to become one with nature on your vacation to Costa Rica? There's only so much I can say as a frog hopping to and from resorts, so why don't you share your experiences at a tree house with the rest of your traveling friends?
