Escape to the serene village of La Tigra, Costa Rica, and experience the enchanting La Tigra Rainforest Lodge—a truly unique lodging option for your Costa Rica adventure! This rustic safari tent camp lodge offers an extraordinary opportunity to immerse yourself in the heart of nature. The safari tents are perched on sturdy hardwood platforms, ensuring you stay comfortably dry while surrounded by the lush jungle. As an authentic ecolodge, our amenities are intentionally minimal, including tropical gardens, a charming restaurant, scenic trails, laundry service, parking, and select areas with complimentary WiFi.
La Tigra may be off the beaten path, but it's a haven for nature enthusiasts. Our lodge features a one-kilometer trail that allows guests to explore the captivating jungle at their own pace. Encounter fascinating wildlife such as anteaters, sloths, toucans, vibrant frogs, and more. You can also embark on a hike to the Sin Nombre Creek for a refreshing swim in the heart of the rainforest. For a truly magical experience, join our guided night tour through the forest, where you'll witness the rainforest come alive with activity under the cover of darkness.
While La Tigra offers a tranquil retreat, the bustling town of La Fortuna and the iconic Arenal Volcano National Park are just a 30-minute drive away. From there, you can partake in a plethora of exciting tours and activities, such as hiking at the base of Arenal Volcano, soaking in the rejuvenating hot springs or exploring La Fortuna Waterfalls, navigating the Arenal Hanging Bridges, embarking on thrilling whitewater rafting adventures, soaring through the treetops on canopy ziplines, or even conquering waterfall rappelling and canyoning. Keep in mind that La Fortuna serves as the hub for most tour operators, so some additional travel time may be required to reach various destinations.
The heart of La Tigra Lodge is the El Canta Ranas Kitchen and Dining Room, a rustic yet inviting onsite restaurant that serves delectable traditional Costa Rican cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your day begins with a complimentary breakfast, and additional meal plans are available upon request—just consult with your travel consultant for details. The restaurant proudly embraces a farm-to-table concept, sourcing the majority of its ingredients from local farmers. This sustainable practice ensures the freshest and most delicious dishes while actively supporting the local community. The spacious dining hall is adorned with long, rustic hardwood tables and benches, offering breathtaking views of the pristine jungles of Juan Castro Blanco National Park.
Your accommodations at our rustic tent rooms allow you to seamlessly connect with nature. Each tent is thoughtfully situated on raised platforms above the jungle floor, boasting spacious balconies for you to unwind and immerse yourself in the rainforest's beauty. As this is the rainforest, each tent features a metal roof, ensuring you stay comfortably dry. To preserve the authentic tent camp ambiance, each unit provides one electric socket in the bathroom and two light fixtures. Plus, every tent includes a private bathroom for your convenience.
