All over the place you hear and see animals like Iguanas, birds, frogs, lizards, turtles, and when you are lucky even snakes or caimans. The private access to the beach – only 100m away – guarantees private bathing and relaxing at a pristine Caribbean beach where you completely forget about anything that might cause you any stress.
Dive deep into the Caribbean jungle and contribute to Jaguar Conservation and rainforest preservation.
At Selva Bananito Lodge you will testify high-quality conservation progress and efforts. Surrounded by pristine jungle with all its charm and sounds, you stay in beautiful private cabins and enjoy delicious locally sourced meals.
As this land was formerly in danger of logging practices, the owners started this lodge as an alternative income source in order to protect the enormous area of 1200 hectares and with it the main drinking water reserves for the city of Limón.
The Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui area is famous for its private reserves and well-protected areas. Oh, and if you love some action, this is a great place to go rafting, surrounded by lush green jungle and wildlife.
Not far from the main road you find the historical hotel Hacienda La Isla tucked away in an incredible lush piece of the rainforest. The hotel rooms boast old colonial grandeur, the hospitality is warm and welcoming, and the nature is overwhelmingly pretty. While hiking the trails you will be greeted by the sounds of the birds and tiny colourful frogs.
Experience the amazing rainforest from a treehouse up in the canopy.
Maquenque lodge invites you to observe and be surrounded by wonderful, diverse nature and wildlife from a bird’s eye view. Turtles, Caimans, and over 500 species of birds have their territory here and will let you have a glimpse at them every so often. The stay in a beautiful bungalow or in a treehouse 12 m up in the tree is guaranteed an unforgettable experience.
Testify outstanding sustainable tourism and self-sufficient life at Rancho Margot.
The efforts of sustainable practices in order to minimize negative environmental impacts and to offer maximal adventurous experiences are incredible. Rancho Margot operates almost self-sufficient in every area and closes the economic loop as every by-product or waste product is reused, recycled, or further processed to a valuable resource. Extraordinary!

Visit pristine beaches and vibrant marine life at the southernmost point of Nicoya Peninsula
Imagine heaven is a beach you would have this precious spot on earth in mind. In the bay of Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula, you will find this special Boutique Beach Resort. Howler monkeys might wake you up in the morning, hummingbirds will pass by and if you are lucky you might get to see some little turtles hatching on the beach and finding their way to the ocean. A perfect mix between relaxing and adventurous holidays.
Visit the peaceful oasis of Macaw Lodge and try some delicious self-made chocolate.
A huge tropical botanic garden around the lodge was created to regenerate the native local ecosystem. A warm and family-like atmosphere and the beautifully designed lodge give this place a special touch. The cacao manufactory, several hiking trails, night-tours, and two yoga platforms offer the perfect mix of activities for body and soul.
Dive into a savanna-like atmosphere in the middle of the jungle.
You will never forget this magical place! Surrounded by hills covered with tropical jungle, you get the full dose of jungle sounds while “glamping” in beautiful and comfortably spacious luxury tents. The peacefulness of this place invites to deeply relax and escape from the city’s rush and explore the amazing area while enjoying many adventurous activities.

Our hotel in Montezuma is truly heaven on earth for us. Now our Green Circle is about to close! And that is extremely unfortunate because it was a great adventure from day one.
We enjoyed our trips in San Jose, and we already experienced a lot of flora and fauna in Tortuguero. Guide Mario was great. At Hacienda la Isla we completely relaxed due to our stay in the beautiful chapel room and the delicious meals. Irma and Ivan showed us around and showed great commitment and kindness.
The latter is something that every Tico and Tica naturally seem to possess. Such as Julio in Maquenque, where we saw the toucan up close. At Rancho Margot we saw the power of what conscious choices can do with people. Your Green Circle idea is very special. Thank you for letting us experience this.
Yesterday we came back from our sustainable trip to Costa Rica. How much asphalt is there in the Netherlands and so little nature. After we got back, this was something we became aware of after our holiday and had to get used to it again. We had an unforgettable journey, during which we have seen and done so much and everything was well arranged by you, thank you so much!
The Green Circle trip is a wonderful concept. What beautiful locations and we immensely enjoyed to get to know the hotel owners and hear their stories.
We had very high expectations of Costa Rica and we can definitely say our trip has fully met them!
Our accommodation in Boca Tapada was simply paradise with incredible service! Absolutely the nicest location we have stayed in so I can recommend this to anyone. We had the treehouse, which was great!
Edventure has given us a dream trip that we certainly will remember for the rest of our lives????
