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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
