Esquinas consists of 14 spacious, high-ceilinged, fan-cooled cabins with indigenous textiles on the walls. The lodge’s extensive grounds comprise a network of well-marked trails and a stream-fed pool. It was founded by the nonprofit Rainforest of the Austrians, vital in the establishment of Piedras Blancas as a national park. It's in Gamba, 7km west of Km 37 on the Interamericana.

Surrounded by the primary rainforest of the park, Esquinas is integrally connected with the community of Gamba, employing local workers and reinvesting profits in community projects. By offsetting development with tree planting, it has become 100% carbon neutral.
