Those seeking a remote vacation in Costa Rica should choose to stay at the Hotel Las Caletas Lodge, located on the Osa Peninsula in the Pacific Ocean. This stunning 8-acre property is large enough to offer privacy, but with only eight rooms, is also small enough for personalized attention to be given to all guests. With the ocean in front and the rainforest behind, incredible views abound.

Accessible only by boat, this eco-friendly paradise is situated in Las Caletas, between Corcovado National Park and Drake Bay. The hotel is owner-operated, and with a maximum of twenty guests, everyone is made to feel special and welcome. After purchasing the land in 1991, the owners' mindful slow development of the property prioritized environmental choices such as a combined system of solar, water and public power to provide electricity, and tour boats that run on low-emissions motors.

The lodge's private accommodations vary in size and character, but all showcase the gorgeous Costa Rican scenery from porches or balconies. A couple traveling may want to experience staying in an elevated platform tent, while a family would be well-served to choose the larger space of one of the duplex units. Swing in a hammock on your porch while smelling the ocean; read a book while hearing noises of the jungle.

Delicious and healthy eating is a priority at Las Caletas Lodge, showcasing elements from both Costa Rican and European cuisines. The daily rate at the lodge includes both breakfast and dinner, served in the open-air dining room with a backdrop of the ocean and forest. Meals incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as freshly baked breads and desserts. Fish, poultry and meat are served, with vegetarian and diet meals available upon request. Lunch is available for purchase at the lodge and is often included as a picnic or boxed lunch with a tour. Fruit juice is provided at meals, and alcoholic beverages and soft drinks may be purchased. Drinking water is safe and filtered.

The lodge offers an abundance of guided activities to choose from, although many guests like to set aside some time for swimming in the ocean, sunbathing and relaxing, too. Excursions range from thrilling zip lining over the rainforest to scuba diving amongst vibrant sea creatures, serene hikes in the rainforest to exhilarating humpback whale watching tours. All tours, led by experienced guides, highlight Costa Rica's treasures in an intimate setting.

"For "travelers," not tourist, looking to see the most beautiful parts of Osa and really get a feel for Tico life, this piece of heaven can not be missed. From the porch of the main house one can see Toucans and monkeys. It is one of those places that restores the soul and guests become friends.

David could not be more hospitable and Eric is a wonderful nature guide.

This not for someone looking for a corporate Mc-Hotel experience but it could be a delightful corporate retreat for companies looking to "get real."

We loved it and as a world traveler, it will be high on the memory list.

Thanks for a great stay,
Charlise"
