With jungle sandwiched between the Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Costa Rica has something for everyone. These eco-lodges offer an environmentally friendly way to experience the natural wonders of the country.

The accommodations may be rustic, but this eco-lodge cum self-sufficient organic farm offers a huge amount of activities, from horse riding to rappelling to yoga. All food served is grown on site in this farm-to-table operation.
