THE SELVA BANANITO ECO-LODGE IS PROUD OF THEIR SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES AND IT SHOWS

The Selva Bananito Ecolodge is highly distinguished for its conservation efforts because we do take an active stand in conservation by directing and supporting our watershed conservation efforts through Fundación Cuencas de Limón or Limon Watershed Foundation. In order to achieve this goal, we provide logistic and financial support to this Non Profit Organization, through revenues generated by the nature and adventure activities we offer at our Ecolodge Hotel Costa Rica, Ecolodge Selva Bananito.

What does Eco-lodge Hotel Costa Rica actually mean? Very simply, Ecolodge Hotel Costa Rica refers to the services we provide as regular hotels do, such as room and board, but it also makes allusion to Ecolodge Costa Rica, which means that we are oriented toward an environmentally friendly operation as a core value of our operation.

Above all, Ecolodge Costa Rica refers to the location in which lodges are to be found. Selva Bananito, your Costa Rica Ecolodge, is situated in a pristine and natural setting, located at the foothill of the Cerro Mochila, the eastern outcropping of the Talamanca Mountain Range, in the province of Limon, Costa Rica.

Selva Bananito Lodge offers:
- Spacious, elegantly tiled bathrooms with solar heated water. A spacious "Rancho" (main lodge) to enjoy meals and socialize with others.
- Ample decks with spectacular views and comfortable hammocks for your "siesta".
- Each tastefully designed cabin features one queen size and one full size bed, or two queen sized beds.
- Eleven individual cabins constructed of beautiful salvaged wood. They stand on stilts, following Caribbean tradition.
- Romantic, candle-lit evenings. To preserve a more natural night-time ambience, we use no electricity produced by generators. LED Reading lamps powerd by solar energy are provided in each of the 6 superior and 5 of the standard cabins.
- The privilege of exploring a pristine environment in the intimacy of a small group, while also learning about human land use in the lowland tropics.
