The SpaceFrom 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.

The SpaceFrom our client LUIS SPINGLE My wife and I spent a week in the honeymoon suite bungalow at La Palapa and had a wonderful experience. When we arrived at the bungalow, all the interior was full of flowers and the bed had a romantic decoration with an heart and hundreds of small colored flowers, which made us absolutely feel the romance that was inside us. The setting is incredible, nestled inside a very well preserved rainforest surrounded by tropical gardens. The food at breakfast was delicious and Cristina (the owner) came to us because she wanted to be shore that we had a well spent night. The staff was amazing, attentive to detail, warm and friendly. There are roads to ride on the resorts mountain bicycles that were my favorite. The magical freshwater of the swimming pool, was where we went to cool off almost every afternoon after our long walks around the resorts mountain lands with great variety of wildlife in the rainforest, our after our participation in one of the resort organized activities like Zipline, Rafting or Bird watching tours. The property itself is a private nature reserve, and we were not disappointed with the wildlife - beautiful birds, white-faced and frogs of all kinds, etc. There is no air conditioning, but there wasn't a problem because the bungalow are very fresh and had a ceiling fan that we never used because we did not need. There is no TV or internet in the bungalows, but there is a wifi hotspot near the restaurant which was more than adequate. La Palapa Ecolodge was a truly relaxing escape into nature and we were sad to have to leave at the end of our 6 days holiday. I must say that the resort’s owner Cristina is a fantastic host that is always ready to give the best advice on how to spend the day or in the best activity we should participate. Staying in La Palapa was for us the perfect holiday resort in this part of the Manuel Antonio area, away from crowds but sufficient near of the best spots and activities of Manuel Antonio National Park in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. We both know Costa Rica for many years of holidays, and we have had experiences in other resorts that we have been before that we don´t recommend, but La Palapa Resort is the place that no one should miss coming to Costa Rica for a holiday, without problems, and very well kept and absolutely clean in every detail. The standards of quality of this resort in a rainforest is with no margin for a dough the best you can get in any part of the word, and the price you pay to stay in the bungalows are ridiculous compared with the other resorts of the area. La Palapa is like water on the desert sand . . . hope you enjoy it too.

The SpaceAway and away from the world in a tropical rainforest, surrounded by gardens and sounds of the birds on paradise . . Get away from your world and experience the start of a new life. La Palapa is a forest resort in the middle of a rainforest, but also 5 minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches of Costa Rica called Playa Linda. You must experience one or more of the activities that we have for all our clients. On your honeymoon, you will be sleeping in a special bungalow decorated with original handmade artifacts from North Africa in a very romantic atmosphere specially created for you by our very dedicated staff. La Palapa has a great location to go everywhere: Zipline, Rafting, Bird watching, Wildlife tours, and explore the more rustic mountain areas near the resort with a special guide that takes you to a water fall for a fantastic swim. After sitting around in the forest watching the monkeys in the wild for hours here, it was a letdown going to the overpriced crowded Manuel Antonio area with its monkeys used to tourists though the beach is calm and fantastic there which made it worth it. This is the real Costa Rica you've dreamed of, don't miss La Palapa Ecolodge Resort.

    The SpaceFrom our client LUKE STEWERT La Palapa Ecolodge was "a little bit of heaven for us". The only thing I didn't like there was when we had to leave. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The views of birds flying over the treetops and the sounds were spectacular. We also enjoyed being able book all the tours recommended by the resort, and rent their mountain bicycles to tour the roads around the mountain side of the resort and talk to local people while watching and enjoying wildlife of the rainforests. Marvin – the resort guide took us on a night hike on the second night and it was awesome seeing and experiencing a different world at nighttime. We loved waking up in the early morning with the sounds of toucans, parrots and watching the birds from our bungalow balcony. The food served was very good and natural plus the view of the birds full of incredible colors and black squirrels while eating was fantastic. It was wonderful staying at a lodge that is actively involved in protecting nature, wildlife and sponsoring the local primary school with environment education programs for the preservation of the tropical rainforests. Thank you for making our visit so special.

        The SpaceSent by our client Jessica Smith. There is simply no other way to say it because La Palapa seriously gave me the best vacation of my life. We all cannot thank enough Cristina (owner) for everything she did to make our trip so perfect. Costa Rica was a place I had always wanted to go and the experience exceeded my expectations. Everyone we met was extraordinarily friendly, the food was delicious every place we ate, the scenery even more beautiful than I imagined and the adventures could not have been more exiting or fun.I spent 8 days at La Palapa with 12 of my closest friends and there were days where the biggest decision we had to make was whether we should be swimming in the ocean or drinking champagne in the pool. The next days we went to, Zipline, Rafting, and Rainforest Tour through the jungle and over the mountains near the Savegre River with a fantastic guide that explained to all of us every detail of the tour every name of each animal we came across, a real National Geographic adventure that we can only see on the movies. We all went horseback riding on the Matapalo Beach where the guide brought the horses at the site and then let us run those beautiful creatures through the waves. It was the most glorious horseback riding experience of my life.Every morning we were greeted in the rancho with a scrumptious made to order breakfast. I haven't been so spoiled since I lived at home with my parents. The villas made our stay so comfortable. They were extremely clean and cozy with plenty of space for us all to stretch out, get some privacy when we needed and enjoy the common areas together. Every staff member who worked on site was kind, respectful and super friendly. I could go on about this place forever but the bottom line is I could not recommend staying here more. It's a beautiful part of the world and La Palapa Resort in Portalon is the ideal place to experience everything Costa Rica has to offer. I know I will be back soon and cannot wait until that day comes. On our last night around the resort swimming pool he had a dance party possible because we occupied the all resort and the owner allowed us to have a fantastic party (we guaranteed not to make noise that would disturb the rainforest wildlife) with lots and lots of “wine sangria” that made us feel in the end of the world, that was fantastic. La Palapa is for us and many people we meet that paid a fortune in other resorts, the best value for money that one can spent in a holiday in Costa Rica – Manuel Antonio National Park area. Take my advise that you will never regret. Jessica Smith
