Encanta La Vida is an unique jungle lodge which is located in the tropical rain forest of Southern Costa Rica. Situated on the tip of the remote and exotic Osa Peninsula, the beachfront Lodge in Cabo Matapalo offers adventurers the opportunity to witness one of the few untouched pristine regions in the country. Experience the sounds of the jungle, sunbathe on breathtaking beaches and see amazing wildlife all in one location.

Osa Peninsula is home to the highest density of wildlife in all of Costa Rica. Watch an incredible variety and abundance of animals and birds including monkeys, toucans, macaws, coatimundi, aguti and sloths right from your cabin patio. Birdwatching on the Osa Peninsula is world class with over 400 different species of birds in the area. “One of the most biologically diverse places on earth,” according to National Geographic! No need to worry about mosquitoes or other biting bugs though. Most guests never even have to use repellent during their stay with us and bites are very uncommon.

Encanta La Vida is the only lodge located at the beach in the area. People come from all around on tours to experience the rain forest, wildlife and beaches we enjoy everyday. Also, the lodge is only 45 minutes from the world famous Corcovado National Park – crown jewel of the national park system.

"Encanta was a dream! The staff was friendly and welcoming! The food was excellent, and the chef accomodated for myself (and many others) being a vegetarian. Our room, the Honeymoon Cabina, was rumored to be the only one with consistent, 24/7 hot water, so no complaints. We were awakened everymorning to the sounds of birds and monkey and the smell of hot coffee drifting down from the kitchen. Carlos, the manager, was very friendly and knowledgeable as well. He set us up on a great kayaking tour through the Mangroves. Our guide was a bird watching enthusiast and got us quite close to some herons and macaws. The only problem we had was with the bugs. We just learned to shake things out and find out what the locals use for repellent. I look forward to making a return visit!"
