We arrived at 5:00 p.m. after driving close to five hours and Regina greeted us with a welcoming smile, We were urged to head to shake off the day with a welcome cocktail at the Sunset Bar and that's exactly what we did. A mojito never tasted so good. The lodge is beautifully situated and you could spend your entire...

We stayed here for 4 nights. After arriving by bus on foot and staggering up a long winding road to the lodge we were amazed to see how luxurious it was (at least compared to our normal backpacking standard). The beautiful view over the river confluence, the pool and the sunset bar all were really special. We also really enjoyed...

I stayed here with my husband in early January 2012. The land was stunning, with a mountaintop view of the beach and the surrounding biological refuge. The hotel is situated about 15 minutes walk from the beach, 30 minutes walk from the town of Nosara. If you have a car, it is a convenient drive to town, but be careful...

We had such a relaxing time at this lodge in the small town of Nosara. I loved the spacious veranda overlooking the nature preserve and the river. Such a lovely common space to sip a beverage, hang out with family, and eat breakfast and dinner (both of which were delicious), and check email (they have wifi). The location is amazing...

The veranda at Lagarta Lodge is where it all happens - breakfast, lunch, dinner, sitting & waiting for the others in your party, reading in a rocking chair, working on your computer. The view and the ambiance are such that one is tempted just to sit there all day, except for when you walk down to the Sunset Bar for...

You could not stay in a more beautiful place. Amazing big rooms with a view that will be etched in your memory forever- the popular sunset bar is testament that they have the best view in Nosara. If this was not enough, they own a private reserve, which adjoins the hotel. It takes about 2 hours to walk around and...

Spectacular location overlooking the estuary below, perfect for watching the sunsets. We had howler monkeys passing by right outside our room each morning. The (new) room was first class. We really enjoyed the private nature reserve. Breakfast is not included, and we felt a little pressured by the lady owner to eat at the hotel, rather than leaving us free...

We started our visit to Costa Rica at this wonderful lodge and considered not going anywhere else. The view from the restaurant alone was enough to keep us - but add to that an extremely friendly staff, excellent food in the restaurant and the superb location - just wonderful, and all at an extremely reasonable price. This isn't a luxury...

WOW! Probably one of the best coastal views in Costa Rica from Lagarta Lodge, AND really friendly owners who were just so helpful and caring. Thank you Amadeo and Regina. This place is well worth driving to! (The journey here can be a little rough, but this is Costa Rica!). We were in two of the new superior rooms, and...
