La Quinta Sarapiqui Lodge exemplifies the resilience of the tropical rainforest. In 1993, when we started, the site was a cattle farm, cleared of most of its trees and natural vegetation. Careful planning and giving nature a chance has resulted in a remarkable recovery.
The Lodge has established wild gardens as a habitat to attract butterflies, frogs, small mammals and lots of birds. Practically anything will grow in this environment, in fact ten percent of the earth’s bio-diversity is present in Costa Rica and the lowland humid rainforest of Sarapiqui provides limitless opportunities for the eco-tourist.
La Quinta Sarapiqui Lodge is a family owned and operated business. Beatriz and Leo have lived on the premises since starting La Quinta, where their children, Andrés, Beatrice, and Camila were born and raised. Andrés, an agricultural engineer, began working full time at La Quinta in 2017 where he is now developing a production farm, known as El Patio. Beatrice, a medical student, is spearheading a wellness focused initiative known as Serenity. Camila, a computer scientist, works on our digital content from abroad.
Everyone in our staff is from the area of Sarapiqui and some of them have been with La Quinta since we first opened our doors. La Quinta’s staff will make every effort to ensure your stay is as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Personal and friendly service is our number one priority.
