More than a place to stay...

Casitas Del Rio
Riverfront Eco Lodge

More Than Just A Place To Stay

We welcome you to stay with us at our enchanted eco lodge.   It is our vision to offer you an experience immersed in nature, this is why we refer to it as an eco lodge.   Nestled between the beach and the mountains on the edge of the Morete River.  Our location is unique because we are bordered by a massive wildlife corridor.  Protected by the government to preserve the vital corridor along the river there are hundreds of acres of pristine jungle all around us.   This ensures a peaceful connection to nature and tons of wildlife to view from your front porch!

Yet we are only 2 miles from the beach!  The quaint beach town of Uvita and the lovely beaches of Playa Ballena, Playa Colonia, and Playa Hermosa are a 5 minute drive from your Casita. Dominical, the popular surf town with its funky bohemian beach bar vibe, is a 12 minute drive north.  We are centrally located on the Pacific Coast so you can easily do day trips North to Manual Antonio or south to Corcovado and the Osa Penisula.  Uvita is home to Ballena Bahia or Whales Tail Bay, the most popular beach and national park.   The whales spend a longer time here than any other area in the world!

Check our our experiences!  Paddleboarding, waterfall tours, cultural tours, ATV tours, horseback riding, & wildlife tours.   We have spent a great deal of time exploring and learning to share with you the best of Costa Rica!

Be sure to see our Packages - Lodging and Experiences in one discounted package!

Hear the Congo monkeys howl, watch the toucans fly from tree to tree, dip your toes in the cascading ripples of the river right in front of your porch.  Take a leisurely stroll up-river to discover a hidden waterfall, and more natural swimming holes, then come back and grill up on the BBQ in the garden.
