About this listing

This is considered on of the most beautiful resorts of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, very near the Manuel Antonio National Park and the ideal place to spend a day out on a Tour to Cano Island without leaving this unique place. The gardens are known to be one of the most beautiful of the region with a very large collection of tropical plants, flowers and with a private trail to a waterfall in the middle of the rainforest.

From our client JUSTIN WHITE

I used TripAdvisor for planning the majority of my holidays. I and my wife Derby decided that this time in Costa Rica we would spend 7 nights in Manuel Antonio area at La Palapa Ecolodge for what friends told us about the resort, and I confirmed what was on Tripadvisor. We also wanted to be away from people but near the National Park and because of the activities we wanted to participate. The policy of La Palapa towards the preservation of wildlife and the rainforest was also an issue that we very interested to be part and find out more.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the resort, all of our expectations were met and exceeded. The Bungalow was large and well decorated with views over the gardens and swimming pool. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom always very clean. We spent most of our early mornings reading on the balcony, watching the birds and listen to their songs, and seeing beautiful colored butterflies. The restaurant that is by the pool is very clean with a very refreshing shade from the roof palm leaves. Breakfast there includes tropical fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, tea and coffee, followed by Pinto Rice, eggs, toast and bacon which were very good. We had all of our dinners at the Bar/Restaurant “Pura Vida”, that were very pleased with the selection of simple good food and good service. Cristina the owner and Michelin the cook were simply great company and very good helping people that we particularly enjoyed very much.
We ventured out of the hotel by bicycle that we rented at the resort which was a great experiences when we did the roads around and up the resort and observed the wildlife, animals and wide variety of tropical plants.
We would highly recommend La Palapa to anyone thinking about planning a Holiday to Costa Rica. The rainforest Tour is a must while you are there, and you should take every opportunity to get to know the neighbor people of the village. We visited the Primary School of Portalon that we all exceedingly kind and the resort sponsors a environment program for the education of the children of this school. We both have been in heaven and relaxed, and we both agreed it was the perfect holiday in Costa Rica, because we stayed in this beautiful resort called La Palapa.
