  • rooms

    This lovely lodge has 55 charming rooms, all are spacious, with comfortable beds, private bathrooms, hot water, and ceiling fans (but no air-conditioning). Please note that the lodge rooms do not offer TV or music - in keeping with the ethos of enjoying your natural surroundings and 'switching off'.

  • facilities & activities

    Evergreen is located in the heart of the forest and offers a network of walking trails extending to Canal Chiquerito, the third waterway inland. The lodge is set over 5 acres and blends very well with the natural environment. Raised walkways extend between the lodge rooms and main buildings, with trees and plants surrounding everything. Expect to see monkeys, birds, and even sloths on the hotel property. Needless to say, nature enthusiasts will love this place. 

    Certain tours are included within your package, so days will be spent out and about exploring; this area has some of the best birding in the country—explore the canals on boat or in kayak and spot a range of tropical birds, as well as monkeys and crocodiles.There are also a number of optional excursions (payable locally), the most popular of which is the evening turtle tour in nesting season. A variety of turtles come ashore at the beach to lay their eggs, and you can watch them nest and hatch.Back at the lodge, you might like to book a canopy tour on the property. It includes eight platforms and is an exciting way to experience jungle life! There are also two swimming pools. The newer of the two is the main pool and one with a waterfall and more often than not it is frequented by all three different types of monkeys found within the park. Perfect for relaxing and refreshing after a day exploring.


    The lodge offers individual and couple spa treatments,  both indoors and outdoors.
