We had a wonderful adventure at Danta! We stayed in one of the bungalows nested away in the trees, absolutely loved the hammocks to rest in and watch the monkeys go by. It was very creative to line the bungalow's windows with mosquito nets as well as the the space between the walls and the ceiling - that way the...

We stayed in a villa and my mother in law stayed in a regular room in the main building. The villas were outstanding. On three sides they are “open” with only heavy mosquito netting for walls. Our porch faced a beautiful small winding river that snaked through the forest some 20 m in front of us. We had two full...

Our 3rd visit to Danta and we have booked again for next year. Our refurbished bungalow added a porch and hammock overlooking the forest: sleeping with the sounds of the jungle, waking to the tropical dawn chorus. We spent many hours walking Danta trails in primary and mature secondary forest -- watching active leks of orange-collared manakins and observing the...

Our newly refurbished cabin amongst the trees with two hammocks on the balcony was our luxurious home for two nights. The open air bathroom was well equipped and open to the trees at the back so you could bird watch whilst having a shower! The food was excellent served by friendly staff and the Imperial beer refreshingly cold. Nelson was...

We spent 3 nights at Danta Corcovado (DC) and would highly recommend it! Property and getting there: DC is located about 40 minutes north of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula. We flew to PJ from San Jose on SANSA and arranged for DC to pick us up at the airport in PJ. They were right on time and we...

Danta Lodge offers the best possible experience in the jungle of Costa Rica. The lodgings are unique and beautifully furnished with original pieces hand-crafted by the owner, Merlin Oviedo. These are all made from wood which has fallen in the forest so that none of this amazing jungle is being disturbed. Merlin, like his name, is truly a magician with...

I was talked into driving 2.5 hours there and 2.5 hours back for just one night, and it was totally worth it. While I didn't get to experience a lot in the Osa Peninsula (or even enter Corcovado National Park), staying at Danta Lodge gave me a huge taste of what makes this area so special. The artistic use of...

First we have seen the room it was really great surprise with opened air bathroom but in reality it was strength to have shower and toilet in used because of mosquitoes and other insects specially at night time. We have got insects and spiders in our beds too

This hotel can almost be described as upgraded indoor camping - and it was great! The two of us stayed in the "Rana room" which is part of the main lodge building. We enjoyed being so close to the restaurant and bar because we didn't have to walk outside in the dark or in the rain. The downside is that...

We stayed here for three nights as part of a package with Saladero Lodge and realty enjoyed our time here.
