Omgeving

Tropisch regenwoud en ongerepte stranden

De Rio Tico Safari Lodge ligt in het dorpje Vergel de Punta Mala aan de Zuid Pacifische kust, de Costa Ballena. Hier grenst het ongerepte regenwoud aan paradijselijke stranden. Op zes kilometer van het strand aan de voet van de groene bergen vind je aan een glasheldere rivier deze kleine Costaricaanse gemeenschap.

In Vergel de Punta Mala kun je onbezorgd genieten van de overweldigende natuur; je kunt diverse vogelsoorten, neusbeertjes, miereneters, felgekleurde kikkertjes en apen tegenkomen. De combinatie van bergen, regenwoud en water zorgt voor diverse fotogenieke watervallen. Er komen hier nog weinig toeristen en je komt gemakkelijk in contact met de vriendelijke Tico’s. De perfecte plek om te ontdekken wat het pure leven, pura vida, inhoudt.

Pura Vida in the RIo Tico Safari Lodge

In de omgeving van de Rio Tico Safari Lodge zijn diverse activiteiten te ondernemen. Verken te voet het regenwoud op onze eigen wandelpaden of ontspan in een hangmat bij de rivier of op een van de spectaculaire stranden. Het is heerlijk om een verfrissende duik te nemen in de natuurlijke baden van de rivier: spring vanaf een hoge rots in het diepe gedeelte of geniet van een watermassage onder een van de kleine watervalletjes. Met deze echte Rio Tico ervaring voel je je verbonden met het omringende regenwoud.
¡Pura Vida!

Walwissen, dolfijnen en schilpadden

Naar het nabijgelegen Marino Ballena Nationaal Park komen tussen Augustus en Oktober en weer van December tot April bultrug walvissen om te paren en hun jongen geboren te laten worden. Bovendien worden er zeer regelmatig dolfijnen en zeeschildpadden gezien in deze regio.

Corcovado Nationaal Park

Ten zuiden van Vergel de Punta Mala ligt het Osa schiereiland en het Corcovado Nationaal Park, het meest ongerepte gedeelte van Costa Rica. Veel reizigers vinden dit het mooiste park in Costa Rica en volgens National Geographic heeft het de grootste biodiversiteit ter wereld.

Boruca Indianen

Naast al het natuurschoon dat Costa Rica te bieden heeft, kun je in het dorpje Boruca kennis maken met de tradities van haar oudste bewoners. Zij maken traditionele houten maskers met kunstzinnig houtsnijwerk en op hun weefgetouwen weven de Boruca vrouwen ingewikkelde patronen met door natuurlijk verfstoffen gekleurd garen.

What visitors say about us

Great place to relax and to remember real life! ★★★★★
~ December 2018
"Great place! My husband and I stayed there around 3 weeks ago, begging of November, and loved it! Besides it s gorgeous place, owner and stuff were very polite and helpful. Definitely recommend this place! Love to stay in the gorgeous luxury kind tents and surrounding beautiful nature. Would love to repeat again!" Tungaa and Darek | US

Amazing place to stay ★★★★★
~ September 2018
"Never liked camping? Put all your negative experiences aside and rent a fantastic jungle lodge tent at Rio Tico. 4 km inwards next to the river you find this small scale lodge. You feel part of nature and can enjoy a truly relaxing stay. Breakfast included. The luxury then has a bathroom and an covered outdoor with nice chairs and a view. Inly downside it it does not really has options for lunch or diner, so a 20 min drive to Ojochal or so is needed. But worth it. Wifi works but who needs it when you want to relax." Mark | Netherlands

Rainforest camping ★★★★
~ 8 July 2018
"Rio Tico Safari Lodge is a unique experience, tent camping in the rainforest. The well constructed Safari tents have attached bath and shower. The setting is absolutely lovely above a rushing stream. Sleep as if in the outdoors, to the sound of rushing water and gentle chirping of woodland fauna." Thomas Z | US

Glamping in Costa Rica★★★★
~ 1 May 2018
"On advise of our travel agency we stayed here. Instead of rooms or cabinas Rio Tico offers South African Tents with an add-on bath room. It was a completely different experience which I can recommend. The tent has a wooden floor, electricity and a nice bathroom. Breakfast is served in the main building and is good. " Geert111964 | Netherlands

Hide-away in the jungle ★★★★★
~ November 2018
"During our 3-night stay we enjoyed the great hospitality of Cees. He pampered us with ‘Dutch’ pancakes and delicious snacks. He also gave us very good advise about activities, restaurants and roadtrips.
Beside that the place is really wonderful. The ‘tents’ are very comfortable with kingsize beds and a nice balcony overlooking the river. In the morning we had our morning dip in the nearby waterfall. We walked the nearby trails and were surprised by the presence of many spidermonkeys.
We will be back!!" Joke L | France

Definitely comfy camping! ★★★★★
~ 15 August 2018
"The tents are beautiful, and the roaring river just nearby makes for a delightful experience. The breakfast is absolutely DELICIOUS! European style, with crepes and jams and tea... we couldn't have loved it more! If you enjoy camping, as we do, these tents are super comfortable." britt824 | US

Very quiet glamping site on a river ★★★★
~ 8 July 2018
"This site is near Uvita (a $30 taxi ride - cash only) and is very very peaceful on the edge of a river. There are a number of tents and a couple of rooms in the main building. The lower tents near the river have a steep climb to the main building but are very quiet." Rexy Stokes | UK

Incredible experience! Loved it! ★★★★★
~ 5 April 2018
"I agree with all the other positive reviews. What a place! The owners give such care to it and their guests! We decided to go here because it sounded so different -- it was! Very clean, a breeze -- either through the windows or a fan. Comfortable bed, beautiful surroundings. " Nacy C | US

Loved this place ★★★★★
~ 7 April 2018
"We stayed here for just one night over Easter Weekend (Semana Santa), the busiest time of the year in Costa Rica for traveling. It was a bit of a default that we stayed here as with our last minute trip planning the Saturday night was a night where we couldn't get into our other planned accommodations. I am so glad that it worked out that way, as this place was an amazing little interlude in our trip ...." star33star | Canada

More businesses like this one please★★★★★
~ 15 January 2018
"Some hospitality business owners are in it for the profits, some simply have a calling. These guys are the latter. I can only confirm all the positives. It's a safari lodge, not a 5 star hotel, so think waterfall swimming holes rather than jacuzzi 😉 just come with the right state of mind and you'll love it. The grounds are stunning and beautifully maintained." Vitamin_Sea2008 | US

Glamping in the Jungle ★★★★★
~ 30 January 2018
"Such a stunning place! We loved everything about our stay: the beautifully located and comfortable tents with amazing views, the natural surroundings with lovely gardens, the rainforest, the swimming in the river and near the waterfall, the location close to the beach on the pacific coast and the very tasty dutch pancakes with good coffee for breakfast."
