Food was excellent! This place is beautiful and it's green! Pablo and Mojo took us on a night mission to find frogs and were provided a private lesson on each frog. Because Macaw Lodge is free from pollution, these frogs are able to reproduce on the land. Beautiful!

Woooh I was impressed. First the road from tarcoles to Macaw lodge has good views and for sure you need your 4-wheel drive car. You have really good views! I arrived at the village close to Macaw lodge and met the local people... I saw some deers crossing the road. When I arrived I had a delicious healthy dinner. All... More

The web site or their facebook page really does not transmit the sheer beauty of macaw Lodge and its surroundings, this place is truly fantastic in the very sense of the word.

I'd heard about Macaw Lodge from friends and visited the website, but noting compares to actually being there. I spent a few days at Macaw in February and could have stayed a lot longer. Not a person who relaxes easily, the surroundings, beauty and spirit of the place immediately drew me into a serene, relaxed, rejuvenating state of mind. The... More

We just had a mindfulness meditation and yoga retreat at beautiful Macaw Lodge and it was a wonderful experience. The place is very peaceful, the facilities and staff allowed the participants to have a smooth and easy dive into the activities as soon as we arrived. Everybody left with a smile on their face.

This place is fantastic but getting there is not for the faint hearted! The road from Tarcoles is 20km of ruts, potholes, crevices and hills and it took 1hr of very concentrated driving to reach the Lodge. Be warned. But once you are there everything is different. The gardens/grounds are stunning. The peace and tranquillity is unique. The food was... More

From the moment you pull onto the property you can tell the Macaw Lodge is something special! The layout of the land is spectacular with stunning views in every direction. The tour of their sustainable agriculture projects are astounding and the food is so fresh and delicious you won't want to leave. The land is an arboretum and the gardens... More

We stayed at Macaw lodge for three days in early Jan 2015. It felt heavenly. The manager was wonderfully helpful, and the gardens and the building itself are magical. A particularly interesting feature is the ecological care with which it is managed: the building itself is built from sustainable woods, and the farm and gardens put it well on the... More

This Lodge is picture-perfect and is an "eco-lodge" in the true sense of the word. Solar hot water as well as electricity with its own organic farm makes it an amazing piece of paradise. Came here for an incredible yoga retreat with Leah and friends from Atenas as well as a company retreat as well as our good friend's birthday... More
