Imagine waking to an omelet cooked from eggs gathered that morning and herbs picked from the organic garden. The Chachagua Rain Forest Eco Lodge brings this style of sustainability to its ranch in the lush tropical highlands. Though the land was first purchased to house his family’s farm, Carlos Salazar has seamlessly blended and maintained this farm while pioneering the development of eco-tourism in the area. Near the scenic Arenal Volcano and adjacent to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, its an oasis for naturalists and outdoor adventurers.

Set amongst rich agricultural land, the resort is constructed of gorgeous indigenous woods and locally crafted furnishings. Eager to share their knowledge, programs on sustainable livestock production and environmental conservation are available through the resort. Looking for something constructive to do, visitors can help plant native trees to restore the local environment or immerse themselves in the rural style of life. Several trails on the farm lead to waterfalls, giant trees, and the dense jungle where guests can spot toucans, parrots, and wild cats. After returning from a long day exploring, visitors are treated to exotic cocktails and an innovative menu of Costa Rican field-to-fork cuisine.

When visitors are ready to move beyond tours of the organic garden and milking the cows, guests can choose from among options that include: hiking the Rio Celeste, canyoneering, ziplining on the Mundo Aventura, sport fishing in Lake Arenal, and white water rafting.

*Complementary hike in the hotel trails at morning. Complementary tortillas clases in the afternoon.

Wonderful hotel with beautiful grounds.

Wonderful place to stay! Loved our bungalow! The staff moved us to one away from the few other guests staying. At night the sounds of the forest were incredible! We hated to leave.
