Roots that matter

Building strong bonds with the community has been a pillar of our philosophy from the beginning, as dear to our hearts as preserving the environment. The commonly shared values of respect for nature's rhythms, coexisting with its thriving wildlife, and taking from the earth what it gives us, and not more, are the foundation of our collective. Bringing a project as El Lugar to Sarapiquí is more than a hospitality venture. Our love for the planet and this beautiful untouched land inspired a resort that pays homage to nature. At El Lugar, we strive to strengthen our surrounding communities' economy and quality of life by sourcing their services and products, thus creating a growth alliance. We see and honor the generational wisdom of a community that has faithfully guarded this generous land of which we have a mutual love.
