Discover Top Things to Do in Puntarenas, Costa Rica

“There are very few places where you can see scarlet macaw in the wild – Villa Lapas is one of them!”…

Situated in the breathtaking Puntarenas Province of Costa Rica, Villa Lapas Jungle Village is the perfect gateway to exhilarating attractions and things to do. We are located on the Tárcoles River at the edge of Carara National Park, and our 500-acre rainforest preserve offers the chance to experience two unique ecosystems: the Tropical and the Dry Pacific. Over 400 species of birds await birdwatching connoisseurs, as well as other exotic wildlife like white-face capuchin monkeys, peccaries, anteaters, poison-arrow frogs and the crocodiles of the Tárcoles River.

When it comes to discovering the beauty of Costa Rica, you can choose from a diverse range of things to do around Villa Lapas. See magnificent crocodiles, exotic birds and fauna in the mangroves of the Tárcoles River. Dive or snorkel the warm waters of the Pacific, or glide across the waves on an ocean kayak. Embark on a scenic horseback ride along the coast, or marvel at the Bijagual Waterfall, Costa Rica’s second-largest waterfall. 

The hotel staff at Villa Lapas Jungle Village will be happy to recommend things to do and assist with any arrangements necessary to ensure an unforgettable adventure in Costa Rica.
