5 Reasons why Nicuesa is the perfect social bubble getaway destination for a buy-out!

Are you looking for the ideal place to go with your family or social bubble for a fantastic experience?  Welcome to Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge in beautiful Costa Rica, where seclusion in nature is a jungle-chic boutique lodge. Why not buy the lodge out for your social bubble?

With just 12 rooms immersed in the rainforest, and only accessible by boat, Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge offers magical conditions for a family group wanting to vacation together.  It is idyllic for its level of safety measures but with the ease that nature provides to enjoy the curiosities of the jungle fully, the open waters teeming with marine life, the diversity of flora and fauna, the delicious meals, and the Nicuesa Experience.

On the far southern Pacific Ocean coast neighbored by the Piedras Blancas National Park and the majestic Golfo Dulce, one of only four tropical fiords globally, Nicuesa is a nature wonderland. 

Yoga with the sounds of the waves in the background. Paradise! 


1.    Retreats

After a couple of years of stress, changes, challenges, and triumphs, the idea of a retreat is even more attractive for the heart and soul.

Nicuesa is the perfect destination for yoga, wellness, and a close-to-nature retreat for your favorite group of retreaters!  With a beautiful, roofed yoga deck overlooking the beach, this is ideal for yoga, Pilates, mediation, educational-focused workshops, or the meeting spot for a day of adventure on the water or in the forest.

For the yoga lovers, how does a daily sunrise and sunset yoga class on the waterfront yoga deck sound to welcome and farewell the tropical sun each day?  The Yoga Bliss Package is just an idea of the possibilities you have.

Nicuesa offers its guest the perfect conditions and flexibility to organize their retreat, whichever it may be.  With a buy-out, the property is yours and your group to enjoy and explore.  Perfection!

2.    Hideaway

To get to Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge, you must take a 30-minute boat ride across the Golfo Dulce.   It is surrounded by Piedras Blancas National Park and borders the calm waters of the Golfo Dulce. Nicuesa is a hideaway like no other if you want to be away from the crowds and enjoy your social bubble.

With a buy-out, the only other people around will be the amazingly accommodating Nicuesa staff focused on making your loved one's stay unforgettable. As a result, you will most likely see many more animals than other people. Does this sound fantastic, or what?

It will also allow you to have some quality time with your social bubble without feeling the constraints you may have felt over the past few years.  Just look outside your cabin window or from your terrace into the rainforest and the energy it exhales. Go sit on the pier and just inhale the vastness of the Golfo Dulce in all its beauty.

All by yourselves!

3.    Costa Rica

Costa Rica is the gateway to your social bubble vacation in beautiful Nicuesa.

Costa Rica is also the perfect "escape to the tropical green," as many travelers from the northern hemisphere are looking for idyllic vacation destinations close to home and easy to reach. Of course, it is on many a traveler´s bucket list, as Costa Rica usually is! So as we enter the Green Season, all the more reason to immerse into the rainforest, just what Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge does so well.

Costa Rica is just a flight away with flights from all major North American and European hubs. Whether you fly into the Santamaria International Airport or the Guanacaste International Airport, there are many options. You can then decide whether to drive down the picturesque Pacific Ocean coastline or see it from above by flight to get to Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge.

4.    Activities for everyone

Just as it is rich in animal life, it is also an excellent place for adventure, whether you are exploring the rainforest or out on the water navigating the inlets on a kayak.   A yoga deck has views of the water, or just hang out on your terrace that blends into the lush, tropical forest. 

So, suppose your social bubble comprises people of different ages, interests, energy levels, or just how they define the best vacation. In that case, Nicuesa is full of possibilities and has something for everyone. 

Surrounded by rainforest and overlooking the Golfo Dulce, the question will be how you can do all the activities and not miss out on the fun!

Try out kayaking around the inlets or doing a bit of exercise on SUP will be in awe of the beauty of Golfo Dulce. This calm body of water is spectacular and home to more than 1000 species of marine life, including the majestic humpback whales that pass by a couple of times a year to breed and birth.

You can also enjoy breathtaking views from the comfort of a boat on a dolphin spotting, sunset tour, or for the keen anglers, a tour in one of the best off-shore fishing spots to catch sailfish, marlin, tuna, and dorado.

For those who prefer two feet on the floor, explore the rainforest along the self-guiding trails or with a naturalist guide who will show you the magic of the jungle! Don´t forget that Nicuesa borders the Piedras Blancas National Park and is just a boat ride away from Corcovado National Park too. 


Spacious suites immersed in the rainforest. 

5.    Accommodation

Nicuesa boasts excellent jungle-chic rooms and cabins that are immersed in the rainforest that guests can retreat to and relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rainforest.  Each cabin also has an independent entrance, beautifully polished hardwood floors, open-air showers, terraces that embrace the rainforest, and louvered doors and windows. 

The Mango Guest House is a 4-bedroom home-away-from-home that is perfect for the part of your social bubble.   For another family, the Jaguar House has three bedrooms with a spacious living room downstairs, and the second floor has a large open terrace to sit back and contemplate the rainforest with the sounds of the waves in the background.

Nicuesa also has a secluded cabin suite set apart from the others. This can be a spacious one-bedroom and lounge room or a 2-bedroom abode.   There are also one-bedroom and 2-bedroom cabins that will work perfectly for all your social bubble family members.

Flexibility is key when traveling with your family and friends, and when it comes to having a fantastic night's sleep in the rainforest, Nicuesa lets you choose your favorite setup!
