A private Double room with a balcony and seating area in front. Shared kitchen and bath. Located on over 60 hectares, bordered on one side by Corcovado National Park. Enjoy our extensive trail system included in your stay.

The space
Bolita is a place for those with a heart for true adventure. You'll stay right in the remote rainforest, completely surrounded by nature. The lodge itself, is 30 minutes from the town of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre , and access is by foot only, on a slightly aggressive, but beautiful trail through primary forest. In spite of the remote location, you'll have a cozy little cabina to yourself, each with a deck, and seating in front. There is a well equipped kitchen shared by 6 cabinas, and new washroom facilities built in 2016. Included with your stay, is access to the SELF-GUIDED TRAIL SYSTEM that meanders through 60 hectares of rainforest, and brings you to waterfalls, river-walks, and stunning views of the Golfo Dulce. The trails grant first hand access to all the all the flora and fauna of this incredibly bio-diverse area of the world.

Guest access
At the Bolita office in Dos Brazos, there is free bag storage, and a refrigerator for perishables, but keep in mind this is 30 minutes away from the lodge. There is no electricity or refrigeration at the lodge itself.
Spring fed potable water supplies the lodge. It is captured as it exits the rocks, high up in the mountan. No need to bring in bottled water.
There is a guest telephone at the Lodge for short calls within Costa Rica, for example, to call a taxi, or to reach either of the owners.
We have a selection of rubber boots for guest use.
There is a shared common area with Bolita Rainforest Hostel, which includes Hammocks, seating area, and covered picnic tables if you're feeling social.

Other things to note
Bring all your food with you. While there are two small stores in Dos Brazos, the selection is limited, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. For a wider selection, shop in Puerto Jimenez or elsewhere.
You should arrive no later than 5:00 p.m. as the hike to the lodge must be done before dark.
Footwear for hiking: Crocks, river shoes, hiking sandals, or rubber boots are good. Anything that will stay on your feet, and can get wet, as most of the trails involve walking through water at some point.
All you need to bring with you is clothes, food, and flashlight.
