A beautiful ecolodge on the banks of the Río Sarapiquí, patterned on a 15th-century pre-Columbian village. The restaurant terrace overlooks the river and the Tirimbina rainforest reserve. A digital telescope brings guests closer to the stars. Their environmental education center, and their use of solar energy and natural wastewater treatment, make this a truly ecologically sound project. During construction, workers discovered pre-Columbian tombs that you can now see next to a petroglyph garden at the entrance to Centro Neotrópico. Their state-of-the-art museum focuses on rainforest ecology and indigenous and prehispanic history,($12, $26 including lunch).
