:: Cahuita Hotel::Ciudad Perdida Ecolodge - Costa Rica South Caribbean::


Ecological tourism or ecotourism is visiting or traveling to areas in which the ecosystems have not been significantly altered, with the intention of appreciating nature and promoting conservation while keeping a sense of responsibility at the same time. This type of tourism  has low environmental impact and provides social, cultural and environmental development in a responsible manner, while maintaining a delicate balance with the care of the natural surroundings.


These are the 4 main highlights of an ecotourism experience:

  • Maximum satisfaction
  • Less negative environmental impact
  • High respect for local culture
  • Financial benefit for the country

An Ecolodge is a lodge that meets specific ecotourism sustainability guidelines. It is the responsible way to stay in a region and integrate oneself into the culture.

The word ¨lodge¨ comes from the English language, and means a type of guardhouse. It was used to refer to the Kenyan National Park hotels which were quite small with very few rooms. In protected areas, these hotels could usually only accept several tourists at one time. These hotels have shifted their names to ¨ecolodges¨. Surrounded by nature, these hotels, dedicated to the progression of ecotourism, are wonderful places to stay, relax and learn.
