Rainforest Activities at Lookout Inn Lodge - Costa Rica
Our Lookout Inn Lodge is located on the Osa Peninsula, in the Southern part of Costa Rica. This area is one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world, and has been described as “The most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic.
There is no doubt that we have a lot to do and see out here – especially if you love nature, wildlife, national parks, hiking, taking photos, and just plainly enjoy being outside.
Please view our below list of activities, and let us know during your reservation process if you’re interested in any of these. Some activities, like Corcovado hikes, have to be arranged in advance.
CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK
The highlight of our Peninsula is the Corcovado National Park. The park is around 42,000 hectares large, and hosts around 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. The biodiversity here includes 400 species of birds, 140 species of mammals, 116 species of amphibians and reptiles, over 500 species of trees, and more than 6,000 species of insects.
There are several ways that you can see the park!
TRAILS AROUND THE LOOKOUT-INN LODGE
Hiking around the property of Lookout Inn Lodge you can see all the wildlife that also occurs in the park – since we’re located right next to it. Additionally, we have waterfalls, rivers, lagoons, and beautiful rainforest for your enjoyment.
We offer guided tours around our own property, on several marked trails. You may also go on your own hike, without a guide. All our trails are marked and we have maps to show you how to get around.
However, we do recommend that you take a guided hike, since you’ll see many more animals that are hidden all around the rainforest.
These are the different hikes we offer:
There are many other water-based and rainforest activities to consider. At our hidden eco lodge, Lookout Inn Lodge has something for you to do from sun up to sun down—or you can do nothing all day except relax. That's OK with us; it's your holiday. Do as you wish. For those of you who would rather sit by a pool, read, take in some sun and take a cool dip—we have a fresh water pool in our garden area. Have questions about Lookout Inn Lodge?
