Marenco Beach & Rainforest Lodge is a Costa Rica Hotel with a privately-owned nature reserve and lodge located in what is probably Costa Rica's greatest natural endowment, the rain forest and scenic coastal regions and beaches of the Osa Peninsula. Marenco's breathtaking and exotic coastal location provides unlimited opportunities for adventure, family recreation, nature study, research and yes… even some rest and relaxation, in one of the world's classic wilderness areas.

Visitors will be acquainted with the diverse biota of our surrounding, including excellent examples of the Earth's most complex living systems, tropical rain forests and coral reefs. With guided field trips, Marenco presents these worlds so that those who come will gain a deeper understanding of nature. Marenco Beach & Rainforest Lodge makes every effort to foster a climate of inquiry, one in which people can enjoy the experience of learning.

What makes Marenco Beach & Rain Forest Lodge truly special is its proximity to world renowned Corcovado National Park, one of the most important natural wilderness areas in all of Central America. The unsurpassed biological diversity of Corcovado and its great visual beauty have made the park a mecca for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and tropical biologists.

Enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from the hilltop facilities which are exposed to cooling sea breezes. The lodge was built in harmony with the surrounding rain forest and beach environment. All rooms include a private balcony and are fully screened.
