Situated on nearly a 1,000-acre private nature reserve that sweeps down the mountain to the Pacific, Lapa Rios, one of Costa Rica’s most notable eco-lodges, made Conde Nast Traveler’s 2009 Gold List. The main lodge and its 16 bungalows sit on ridgetops, 350 feet above the sea. Needless to say, there are many steps. The lodge welcomes families, but children should be at least 5 years old for safety.
