Tirimbina Lodge

Rustic comfort in the middle of a fascinating rainforest setting! The sustainably managed Tirimbina Lodge borders their private Tirimbina nature reserve – a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers, and a highly respected site for scientific research.

The lodge and its rainforest reserve straddle the beautiful Sarapiquí River. The lodge area connects to the reserve on the other side of the river by a hanging bridge, which monkeys also use! Here you can experience the vibrant jungle and its abundant wildlife with all of your senses. Exciting adventures, unforgettable impressions, new scents and sounds, are all right at your doorstep. You won’t know where to point your camera first!

Simple yet cozy and comfortable guest rooms are located in a long building at ground level, surrounded by rainforest and an impressive variety of tropical flowers. The restaurant is decorated in traditional style, amid abundant tropical vegetation that attracts colorful birds and butterflies. A library and a souvenir shop are at guests’ disposal. The lodge has been awarded the maximum level of “5 Leaves” for the Certificate for Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica, due to its use of sustainable practices like solar energy. Guests can enjoy hiking several loop trails in the nature reserve, visiting an Indigenous Museum, and participating in Tirimbina’s popular chocolate tour. Another highlight is the rainforest night tour, during which you can observe white bats.

Our Opinion:

Tirimbina Lodge is an excellent place for jungle walks and bird watching. Children especially love the activities involving bats and frogs, and the chocolate tour.
