Mission and Vision
The Gecko Restaurant
Guests will enjoy observing the diversity of Costa Rican wildlife hiking along a variety of trails at the lodge. Winding through the ancient vegetation of our pristine rainforest or along beautiful isolated beaches, from three-hour treks to thirty minute walks, visitors can hope to see an abundance of flora and fauna, including morpho butterflies, tree frogs, hawks, parrots, toucans, howler monkeys, dolphins, turtles, and the great Humpback whale.
The well-maintained paths make for ideal self-guided exploration, though local guides can be arranged for the more curious naturalist. Additionally, the area offers a wide variety of activities, among them: whale-watching, snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding, canopy adventure, fishing, and sea or mangrove kayaking. The lodge also coordinates fun and informative activities highlighting reforestation, woodworking, furniture making, and tropical agriculture for those guests interested in learning about native Costa Rican traditions.
Finally, those wanting a peaceful journey of self-exploration through Yoga practice have chosen the right place. Our yoga facilities are some of the best in the country. Constructed on top of a hill facing Mother Ocean in all her greatness, nestled within the sounds and rhythms of the burgeoning forest, "Espíritu Salvaje" (Wild Spirit) is a place of tranquility and complete balance with nature. The design, based on ancient wisdoms and natural structures, incorporates smoothly all four elements: air, water, earth, and fire to create a refreshing, inspirational atmosphere free from modern distractions. To preserve the space from any negative energy, we used only local materials during the construction, including native woods harvested sustainably on our property.
