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. Teams of 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 are even fed by 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.

Each private bungalow comes dressed in polished chocolate wood and overlooks the mountains, the dense jungle, and the Caribbean Sea’s blue waters. Fresh jungle air and the tweets of toucans pass through the always-open windows. High in the leafy canopy, chefs at Samasati's restaurant prepare colorful vegetarian meals concocted from fruit and vegetables grown in the resort's garden and neighboring plots.

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.

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, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, and horseback snorkeling. This deal's second option includes the choice of one of the following tours: rainforest canopy, Cahuita National Park, waterfall trekking, or cacao trail.

You’ll find several Afro-Caribbean flavors in 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.
