If you're looking for adventure, look no further--from the point of leaving your transport behind at "Las Vegas Restaurant" on the Sierpe and boarding the boat that takes you to Sabalo, you will be in for a treat. Having been to Costa Rica several times, I had never yet been "in the jungle" and my friend and I wanted this experience. Our hosts, Dan and Holly, were very gracious and invited us to share their environment with them, teaching us about the surroundings, the wildlife; feeding us delicious meals and letting us just relax on the beautiful grounds. The lodging, though simple, is clean, and all the necessities/amenities needed are provided (organic shampoos, etc). The stream at the back makes for a delightful swimming hole to cool down whether you've spent the day relaxing on the hammock or taking a local tour of the rivers. The grounds are gorgeous with all sorts of vegetation; be sure to check out their garden in the back. We were also delighted to be "serenaded" by the lightning bugs at dusk who provided our light to help us get back to our cabin. Great retreat on the Osa Peninsula!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled at the heart of the Costa Rican jungle lies a secluded paradise called the Sabalo Lodge. It is home to monkeys, toucans, frogs and morpho butterflies living alongside human residents of a nearby village and travelers in search of a unique experience. Clustered in the mangroves, the Eco-Lodge sits next to the winding Sierpe River, which makes its way through the Osa Peninsula and joins the Pacific Ocean rimmed by a gleaming sandy beach. Like no other hotel of its kind, Sabalo Lodge has committed to providing a sustainable recreational experience, offering guests an outstanding array of activities which tread lightly on the local ecosystem. ... more less
