Selva Verde Lodge and Rainforest Reserve is nestled in the rainforest just outside Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, and is a good base for exploring the surrounding forests and national parks.
Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge
Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge, Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, Costa Rica
Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge is built in the style of a pre-Colombian village, designed and developed as an eco-model project using locally sourced sustainable technologies.
There is a beautiful infinity pool, restaurant, bar and 24 comfortable rooms providing spacious accommodation with en-suite facilities. The on site museum and botanical gardens provide an educational experience of the surrounding rainforest, flora and fauna.
Originally the property was built around a pre-colonial archaeological site with some fantastic graves and other remains that add a little bit of history to your stay. The hotel is also next door to the Tirimbina rainforest centre that is, perhaps, most well known for a tour that takes you through the process of making chocolate.

This trip takes in some of the best grade II and III rafting on the Sarapiqui river and offers a more gentle rafting experience than some of the other river trips in Costa Rica. Wildlife such as toucans, cormorants, kingfishers and howler monkeys can be spotted along the water's edge.
