Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

El Remanso is set in a 185-acre private reserve on the Pacific side of the Osa Peninsula, close to the Corcovado National Park.

Rooms at El Remanso

A mixture of rooms and suites are nestled inside the two-storey house that governs El Remanso, while a small collection of cabins are scattered around the lodge. From each room you’ll be amongst the heart of forest activity, seeing monkeys swinging past the window and hearing the sounds of tropical birds, such as the scarlet macaw, chirping overhead.

Food & Drink

Through the bamboo beams of the restaurant, you’ll witness spectacular panoramas of the ocean through the forest canopy while enjoying delicious meals, and it's perfect for relaxing in with a long drink after a busy day in the jungle.


There is a lounge and library, with spots for unwinding in between adventures. 

Activities at El Remanso

The lodge is conveniently located among a variety of hiking trails and adrenaline-fuelled forest activities. Abseil down waterfalls, explore hidden tide pools, or take night tours to discover the nocturnal life of the forest. For an alternative to the jungle, follow the attractive coastal path and enjoy the wild coastline and blue waters of the secluded palm-fringed beach.
