Lonely Planet review
Colorful depictions of marlin and sailfish adorn the walls of this upmarket lodge, which is a pleasant alternative to the more anonymous resorts in town. Backed by the forested hills of the reserve, the property was formerly the home of a banana manager, but now houses just a handful of individually decorated rooms.
Our independent authors have visited Big Thunder Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Golfito.
