If you are driving down you can bring as much as you want but check the airline you use to fly to Costa Rica for weight limits -usually 50lbs per bag & 2 check ins are allowed, 1 carry on bag up to 40 lbs & one personal bag such as a laptop bag or purse (which can fit under the seat ahead of you). Check with your airline.

If you were enthralled with the magic of the Swiss Family Robinson's treehouse and wish to create that same travel adventure and experience in Costa Rica, come stay at Lapa's Nest Tree House in southern Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. They offer on-site 24 hour caretakers, on-site guide, laundry service, optional chef service, and all-inclusive packages.

The 6 story treehouse rental is just a few kilometers hike from Corcovado National Park, just north of Puerto Jimenez on The Osa Peninsula. In the morning, you go downstairs, pour yourself a cup of organic Costa Rican coffee, choose your favorite cushy sofa and sit back to watch the show. One by one, your new jungle friends greet you. First there are the howlers--then the toucans, scarlet macaws, hawks, falcons, and parrots until the air is filled with wildlife’s jazz and dance. Everything is open air and you are a mere 10' from hundreds of titi monkeys swinging and munching their way through the forest. The intoxicating scent of Ylang Ylang (the flower from which Chanel #5 is made) surrounds you as you walk below the canopy with your camera.

Everybody loves and enjoys the tree house's fresh fruit from the organic farm, friendly staff, hiking and guided hikes through rain forest nearest Corcovado National Park. You can also see Ibus, Egrets and Blue Herons along the Agujas river estuary below, less than a 5 minute walk. There are secluded mangrove estuaries, zip lines, kayaking, Gulf exploration, surfing, Organic chocolate farms close by, accessible via the Osa's only paved road (paved road ends at Puerto Jimenez). You will hike, climb, meander down the river, swim the secret swimming pools, pick and eat furry exotic fruits. Just a few minutes away, you can swim with dolphins and enjoy fun eco tours with your family.
