Welcome to the NEW Ecotourism Community Center of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre! Opened in April 2017 with support from the National Institute of Rural Development, the bambú design was developed to complement the natural landscape of the community located along the outskirts of the jungle of Corcovado. Tents, cots or hammocks can be set up at your leisure in the open space with communal bathrooms/kitchen available for use. The $10 USD price includes lodging, breakfast and unlimited coffee.
This space is a newly constructed community eco-center that allows guests to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the community while having access to modern amenities to ensure your stay with us is both comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast and unlimited coffee are included in the price of lodging for each guest. Additionally, though we do have a public kitchen space available for guest use, lunch and dinner can also be prepared fresh for guests for an additional 3,000 CRC ($6 USD per meal) upon request. Laundry services are also available for an additional fee should guests wish to have their clothes wash and dried during their stay as well.
All guests will have access to the shared kitchen area and bathrooms in the community center along with a free breakfast and unlimited coffee included in the price of lodging. At present we have single, double and three-person tents at the lodge, though guests are welcome to bring their own hammocks, cots or tents as they wish.
The local Dos Brazos Office of Tourism, located on site in the community center, is open from 6AM to 6PM seven days a week to allow guests to coordinate their tour and excursion itinerary directly with staff during their stay. We offer a variety of touristic activities here in Dos Brazos including, daily and multi-day hikes in Corcovado, night tours, gold-mining tours, biological monitoring tours, horseback riding, cooking classes, and more!

My name is Ermer Azofeifa Mora and I am the President of the Asociación Conservacionista de Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre (ACODOBRARTI). Our community of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre is situated between the "two arms" of the Tiger River here on the Osa Peninsula and located on the outskirts of world-renowned Corcovado National Park.
Though Dos Brazos has a deep history as a gold-mining community, within the past 10 years we have been working extensively to shift the primary economic activities of Dos Brazos away from the damaging practices of gold mining, hunting and logging in favor of sustainable sources of work that not only seek to safeguard the community’s unique natural landscape, but also depend on it. While the association, comprised of 56 community members, has received an abundance of support in the past from local NGO’s and government organizations, including a visit from the President of the Republic of Costa Rica in May 2015, much of the ACODOBRARTI's success can be attributed to the emphasis on implementing change through an educational approach, focusing to not only transform community behavior, but more enduring, transform the community’s mentality with regard to conservation and the need for it. The resulting effects of these efforts have come to fruition in recent years in the form of our community-wide adoption of ecotourism and other alternative sustainable economic activities with notable successes that include the opening of the community’s first entrance into Corcovado National Park in February 2015, the training and certification of 25 community members as local park guides, and the construction of a community native plant nursery and botanical garden focused on providing a means to protect and sustain the local landscape and wildlife habitats of the many unique species of animals and birds found exclusively on the Osa Peninsula.
We are proud to call Dos Brazos home, and are eager to share with visitors a piece of our local culture and way of life. From Corcovado hikes, horseback riding tours and community cooking classes, we have a variety of activities to offer a truly authentic experience of life on the Peninsula. We hope you'll come pay us a visit soon!
