Río Magnolia Jungle Eco-Lodge is situated on a 280 acre property of mountain rainforest overlooking the Pacific Ocean, halfway between Playa Dominical and San Isidro. The property is 5 km off the highway, near the small town of La Alfombra. Transportation by 4-wheel drive vehicle is necessary to get to the property so the Lodge offers transportation from Los Chorros or San Cristobal for guests that need it.


The lodge is an exciting combination of luxurious accommodations set in an eco-touristic environment.  Walkways through gardens and jungle join the main lodge to the exotic wood cabin, the Balinese-style villa, the horse stables and other facilities. In the foreground of the main lodge sits the inviting infinity pool which features a swim-up bar and terraces for sunning and relaxation.


Amapola Cottage, wheelchair accessible, and also of Balinese design, is located beyond the infinity pool. It has a separate living/dining/kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom. The tropical bathroom is enhanced by large palm trees, a glass-walled shower looking out to a private garden and a Jacuzzi in another private garden. The villa is surrounded by covered terraces and a beautiful stone patio with a bird’s eye view of the ocean, jungle and valleys. In the evening, relax beside the wood-burning fireplace and listen to the sounds of the jungle.


La Heleconia suite is on the second level of Magnolia House with ocean, pool and jungle views. The room has a queen size bed with a sitting area, large ensuite bath with a shower with a view, and a wrap around spacious covered terrace.


La Orquídea

This suite is also on the second level of Magnolia House with river and jungle views. The room offers a queen size or two twins beds and a sitting area, large ensuite bath with a shower with a view, and a wrap around spacious covered terrace.

El Cielo

This suite, wheelchair accessible, is on the main level of Magnolia House jutting out over the valley offering panoramic ocean and jungle views through large windows and the private covered wrap around terrace. The room has a queen size bed with a sitting area, large ensuite bath with a shower with a view.

The exotic wooden cabin, Mono Congo, is located above the lodge on the edge of the jungle with access to Magnolia House via a wooden foot bridge. This cabin is constructed completely from local exotic woods and set in the edge of the jungle with beautiful handmade windows. It offers a queen size bed with a sitting area, and ensuite bathroom with a shower that is open to the jungle sights and sounds. A wooden deck overlooks the ocean, valleys and jungle.
