Centro Neotrópico Sarapiquís
The architecture of the CNS Ecolodge is inspired by the indigenous pre-Columbian construction techniques of the region, used by natives far more than 1000 years. The round palenques (or ranchos) are covered with a traditional thatched roof of palm leaves.
This palenque structure is central to the SarapiquíS concept: the story of nature and its relationship to mankind. The circular design symbolizes the circle of life - an intricate link between the cycles of the biodiversity within the rainforest.
The CNS Ecolodge consists of four palenque structures; three guest units of eight rooms each, and one central building with lobby, restaurant, bar, coffee gourmet bar, photo gallery, administration, gift shop and conference centre.
Like an inverted flower, the three guest units are divided into eight spacious deluxe rooms (24 in total) jointed within the turret reaching an impressive height of 18 metres. All of the units are located amidst the lush gardens and orchards of the property. Many of the rooms have an outstanding view of the rainforest canopy, while others are nestled in the bright and fragrant gardens.
Twelve Standard rooms in the Ulima building complete the Ecolodge capacity of 36 rooms.
With a harmonious decor of earth tones, natural limestone, and antique or artisan-made furniture, guests will enjoy comfortable beds, private bathroom, ceiling fans and cross-ventilation system, phone and internet connection.
Outside every room, a covered terrace invites each guest to enjoy the natural surroundings.
