Playa Cativo


Playa Cativo is a luxury beachfront ecological lodge set on 1,000 acres of private rainforest in tropical Costa Rica. Surrounded by Piedras Blancas National Park and accessible exclusively by boat, this awe-inspiring resort is set on the coast of Golfo Dulce in southern Costa Rica.

The Costa Rican eco lodge offers six stunning beachfront guest rooms with panoramic ocean views, an inviting casita nestled on the beach, gourmet farm-to-table restaurant, fresh-water pool, adventure centre, working farm and concierge services. Playa Cativo offers some of the most fun and challenging activities such as: rainforest tours and hikes, birdwatching, yoga, fishing, snorkelling, paddle boarding, sea kayaking, massages, whale and dolphin watching plus self-guided and private tours of the premises.

A brilliant add on to the hotel is the Gavilán Restaurant with its gourmet dining in a romantic and private setting. You can capture breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from the restaurant while eating some of the finest organic products harvested daily from the on-site organic farm. Heaps of dining choices can be made with locally caught seafood, grass-fed Costa Rican beef, organic free-range chickens, in season vegetables and more to choose from.

In addition, Playa Cativo is the ideal setting for a truly unique destination wedding and honeymoon. The hotel is happy to arrange special details and services and as the hotel is very much secluded, it is a perfect hideaway.
