We loved Chachagua Rainforest Hotel! We had a tough time finding it with the GPS (coordinates didn't work for us), but a friendly man on the main street helped us get there. I can't imagine getting there without 4-wheel drive, especially with the rain, as the road is quite bumpy. However, the property is absolutely beautiful, and the private cabina... More

After almost 2 hours drive from San jose airport in a very nice road, we have more 10 minutes of bumpy rocky road but it was well worth it. The cabana and the entire hacienda are amazing, the open restaurant with all the delicious plates, the breakfast and the homemade bread and jelly with exotic fruits. The entire staff were... More

This hotel is not really near anything. I stayed here with my partner during a summer vacation and we adored it. The property is large, with multiple jungle trails on it (walking paths) and myriad birdwatching spots. All of the rooms are private bungalows. Ours was a separate, standalone building that was beautiful handcrafted wood. We loved the look and... More

We picked this hotel for its unique property. It backs onto a large rainforest with hiking trails, an organic farm, livestock, plenty of wildlife viewiing, etc...Our kids had a great time exploring the property and were able to see an old fashioned Costa Rican farm in action. My kids also loved the two night tours that Henry (the security guard)... More

The only negative thing I can say about this resort is that the internet is slow. Everything else is wonderful. Helpful staff, gorgeous property and very comfortable rooms, complete with great showers, a jacuzzi, and a super comfortable bed. Reception has tons of ideas for what you can do in the area, and even just hiking around the property is... More

This is another review raving about this location. The lodge area is beautiful and the rooms are well kept. The only sounds are those of nature. This isn't a volcano lodge so don't expect those views but it's excellent in all other ways.

This hotel was so different - the rooms were surrounded by wildlife, the pool was one of the coldest on our journey, fed by water straight from a spring. You could hear my breath leave my body when I first jumped in , but it was wonderful and I swam every day. We decks outside our rooms ended up as... More

We just got back from an OAT tour of Costa Rica where we stayed in about six different places and by far this one was our favorite. The road in is a challenge, but one that is well worth the trip. You must cross a creek to enter the compound which is deep in a rainforest. Besides all the flora... More

Lovely landscaping and opportunity to birdwatch. Our rooms were amazing! We had views of the trees from all our windows, including the shower! We were greeted with towels folded up as a heart with flowers decorating them as well. The deck in front of our room begged us to sit and relax. Wifi was available all over the grounds, including...

We loved chachagua!! It is a little off the beaten path (about 15 mins from the center of town) but we loved that it was not as touristy. The rooms (cabins) were lovely but our hot water was not very hot. We went on a rainforest hike with Christian and it was incredible!!
