Casa Corcovado is a secluded, eco-friendly lodge perched majestically on a hilltop in one of the world’s most biodiverse regions just outside Corcovado National Park on the south-western pacific coast of Costa Rica’s renowned Osa Peninsula. This charming, high-end property boasts amazing views and sits on its own reserve which spans some 170 acres, encompassing an abundance of unspoiled rainforest, a pristine stretch of beach and some fabulous wildlife to boot. The lodge was established some 35 years ago by an American who has since continued work on a number of conservation projects to protect the area’s extremely rich flora and fauna, and there is no doubt that sustainability is top of the agenda here.
There are three different accommodation types to choose from: Junior Suites, which are suitable for groups of friends or families; the even more spacious Deluxe Bungalows; and the luxurious Honeymoon Suites. Children of all ages are welcome, with some special rate arrangements for under 12s. All suites and bungalows are set amongst lush, unspoiled rainforest greenery and are well spaced out for plenty of privacy. The decor is simple yet stylish, drawing inspiration from the lodge’s natural surroundings. Packages range from two to seven nights, all including transport between the lodge and San Jose, all meals, access to hiking trails and a tour of the magnificent Corcovado National Park which veritably teems with wildlife from scarlet macaws to jaguars.
The activities on offer are many and varied and they naturally centre around the national park. Birdwatching walks, horseback riding, hiking trails of varying levels of difficulty, mangrove tours and night-time trips to spot some of the park’s nocturnal wildlife are all possible. There are also activities to enjoy outside of the park such as scuba diving and snorkelling around nearby Caño Island, and chilled out sea kayaking excursions.
Back at base there are two swimming pools: one is solar-powered, while the other is tucked away in the forest and fed by a natural stream. The bar is open-air and is a great spot for socialising or even wildlife spotting, while the lounge has some games and a small library, along with information on the aforementioned sizeable line-up of activities. The restaurant, Los Vitrales, specialises in traditional and local dishes, while Margarita Sunset Point is a well-positioned outdoor lounge area with spectacular ocean views. There’s also a gift shop and a spa with a good range of treatments.

Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol
