Have you ever had an open-air shower in the middle of the rainforest?
Vacations are opportunities to experience moments that you wouldn't usually live and when you are in an idyllic location like Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge, surrounded by the rainforest and the sea, you have the chance to embrace unique moments the lodge creates for you.
Nestled in the serenity of the Osa Peninsula region, Nicuesa Lodge is immersed in the rainforest that meets the warm, calm waters of the Golfo Dulce on the Pacific coast. This is the place to go to be at one with nature in the most harmonious way possible. It is fitting that even the shower allows you to appreciate your jungle experience.
As Alain de Botton, author of The Architecture of Happiness said: "Any time we take something we normally do indoors and do it out of doors, there is a thrill...." An open-air shower in the rainforest is just one of the many close-to-nature experiences that Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge beautifully offers you during your stay.
Bathing with the outdoor shower is part of the jungle adventure at Nicuesa Lodge!
Nicuesa Lodge has taken inspiration from the rainforest and its surroundings to create beautiful spaces that give you the opportunity to feel at one with nature, like the open-air shower concept in your private bathroom. At this environmentally sensitive lodge that caters to ecotourism travelers, the simple task of bathing is part of the jungle adventure.
Nicuesa Lodge's cabins and guest rooms feature jungle-chic décor. Each room is designed in a way that allows for the fresh air from the mountains and cool breezes from the sea to flow through the louvered doors and windows. This way, you can truly appreciate the closeness to the rainforest and the amazing wildlife that thrives in this intrinsic ecosystem.
The unique bathrooms have high walls around the shower that ensure a completely private experience, except perhaps for a monkey swinging by in a tree or a Scarlet Macaw flying past. While roofed, the outdoor experience remains and offers open-air spaces to admire the rainforest, the blue sky or the stars.
As Dom Scarlett from TravelPirates says about travel trends, "Hotels aren't just your starting point for travel anymore, they are your destination. People are putting accommodation at the top of their bucket lists."
Playa Nicuesa Lodge fits perfectly into this movement. It's unique location snuggled into the rainforest overlooking the sea, with the beautifully designed rooms and spaces that blend into the virgin landscape, make it a destination lodge. The outdoor shower experience is part of that perfectly achieved concept.
Beautiful tropical flowers and organic bathroom amenities are essential to the Playa Nicuesa Lodge experience.
No detail is left unturned at the lodge to guarantee a true rainforest experience from a sustainable standpoint. Even the bathroom amenities are biodegradable and organic, created by a local Costa Rican company called Raw Botanicals.
Nicuesa Lodge caters to all types of travelers, from honeymooners to families with children. The lodge's different suites and cabins work for all types and let's not forget all the adventure activities and tours the lodge offers.
The open-air shower appeals to romantics, the adventurous, and the free-spirited, regardless of age. What better way to get the kids in the shower after a day at the beach or a hike through the rainforest than in an outdoor one.
Past guests have proven that they love Nicuesa's open-air showers. As a guest from Seattle, who visited Playa Nicuesa Lodge in April 2019, commented: "An open-air shower in the jungle is true luxury."
After a day of adventure exploring the jungle, having a swim in the Golfo Dulce, or taking a tour to see dolphins or whales, a relaxing open-air shower seals the sense of being part of something very special -- nature, in all its magnificence.
