Sustainable Caribbean Bungalows Nestled in a Tropical Jungle

The developers of Samasati Nature Retreat in Costa Rica decided that instead of clearing the jungles with heavy machinery to build a glitzy resort, they should leave behind the smallest possible environmental footprint. Oxen delivered sustainable building materials, such as wood from trees that had fallen naturally. Bungalows and lodges were constructed to maximize ventilation and natural cooling so fewer electrical appliances would be needed. The showers were even designed to use rainwater collected in a rooftop reservoir. Thanks to this environmentally savvy master plan, Samasati Nature Retreat’s 250 acres of rainforest sustain abundant plant and animal life.

Caribbean-style cottages are hidden away in tropical gardens, and each has a spacious veranda where you can take in fresh jungle air and the sounds of tweeting toucans. A flat plain of green grass pokes out of the center of the resort, where a hot tub overlooks the lush Costa Rican countryside. Guests relax here in the jacuzzi or down the hillside, where they can receive massages at the spa. Yoga classes are available twice daily with a resident instructor and are adaptable to all skill levels—select options of this deal come with one included yoga class.

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica: Home to Pristine Beaches and Colorful Creatures

Sheet-white beaches with coconut trees lie 4 miles from the wilderness that surrounds the resort. The rich ecological atmosphere plays host to butterflies, swinging monkeys, marsupials, and more than 500 bird species, and the underwater landscape swims with tucuxi dolphins and sea turtles. Samasati Nature Retreat sets guests up with a variety of eco tours to explore Costa Rica’s immaculate environs, including trips involving surfing, kayaking, canopy tours, and horseback riding. Consider a trip to the Samasati Biological Reserve, an unspoiled rainforest with waterfalls and howler monkeys.

Several Afro-Caribbean cultures influence the town of Puerto Viejo, located just a few miles from the resort. Here there are quaint shops and watering holes as well as restaurants serving authentic Costa Rican dishes, including casado, a medley of rice, beans, plantains, and succulent meat. Listen for calypso and reggae music while you’re walking past the town’s brightly colored houses.
