La Leona is a rustic and remote eco-lodge located just outside the Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula in southwest Costa Rica. Designed with environmentally friendly practises in mind, the property showcases the area’s many natural features, while at the same time doing its best to protect them for future generations to enjoy. There are several simple, tented cabins within a short distance of a pristine stretch of beach on the Pacific Ocean and this is a great choice for those on a lower budget.

All of the cabins look out on to the beach and ocean, though some of them have views that are more focused on the lodge’s pretty gardens and grounds. Each one has its own decking area with seating, as well as a private outdoor shower; note that some of the tent-cabins share bathroom facilities.

Jardines Del Mar is the hotel’s restaurant which is open for three meals a day. It’s an open-air dining venue right beside the beach and has a bar with an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Menus feature a mix of Costa Rican and international cuisine, with ingredients locally sourced and food freshly prepared.

The lodge currently offers around half a dozen enriching activities and excursions at an additional fee. These are designed to reveal not only the area’s rich natural wonders and diverse wildlife, but also its cultural heritage. Exploring the nearby Corcovado National Park is a must. It’s Costa Rica’s largest national park and is commonly referred to as the most biologically intense place on Earth due to its extreme biodiversity. Morning birdwatching hikes, night-time walks and observing turtles nesting (seasonal) are also popular activity choices.

For those travelling with young children, the Family Bungalow is recommended for small families. For larger families, it may be necessary to book more than one tent-cabin. Owing to the lodge’s open location and proximity to the ocean, parents are advised to keep an eye on their youngsters at all times.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
