Each of the ten cozy rooms of Esquinas Lodge has a private bath, hot water shower, tiled floor and ceiling fan. While relaxing on the shady veranda, guests can enjoy a close-up view of the forest. The array of exotic birds, including parrots and toucans, is stunning (over 200 species have been counted). The large main building has a spacious, open living room, library, bar, and a restaurant offering high-standard cuisine only a stone‘s throw from the dense jungle.
A crystal-clear jungle stream flows through the naturally-filtered swimming pool and the beautifully landscaped tropical garden, which attracts a great variety of wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, caymans and colorful butterflies. A 10-mile long network of well-marked trails departs directly behind the lodge.
