our experience was that it was fine if you are looking to stay in the compound. its a $60 return taxi ride into the nearest town, La Fortuna, down a very long very bumpy track so you are at the mercy of their facilities and one restaurant / bar. A small bag of laundry was $70 (and $10 in town).... More

I recently stayed with my husband at the Chachagua Rain forest Hotel, and we love it. The moment we got there, we were welcome by Fermando, the manager. He was very helpful since day 1! We love the food and the atmosphere. Our bungalow was great; very comfortable. We love the staff, and special thanks to Liliana, Byron, the chef,... More

My wife and I made the trek down the bumpy path to Chachagua Rainforest Hotel, and we left with memories that will last a life time. The setting is absolutely stunning. The bungalow with a hammock on the porch was great for relaxing and swaying in the breeze. There are many trails to explore and take a nice stroll. Food... More

If you are looking for a place to enjoy nature, peaceful days and the wonderful quiet of a rainforest, then check out Chachagua Rainforest Hotel near San Isidro, Costa Rica. As you travel up the mountain you will see coffee plantations and fields of sugarcane. The road you take from the the paved road needs work, but don't despair. It... More

I am so glad we chose the Chachagua Rainforest Lodge, our stay here was absolutely wonderful and I would return in a heartbeat. The lodge is a little difficult to find but once you did you are rewarded handsomely for the challenging trek.

We had a lovely cabin room with super comfy bed. Loved that it is so connected to the rain forest. We heard the sounds of the jungle all night. The lack of extra lights all over the place makes it seem super peaceful at night. Dinner in the dinning room was fun and the food was good. If you decide... More

The Chachuaga Rain Forest Hotel is a peaceful place at the end of a bumpy, gravel road. The grounds are beautiful with a small stream running through. The open air lobby had a large area behind reception with tables and games. Uphill from this building were rooms. Rooms were basic with no amenities, Some bungalows had hammocks and large front...

It was very pleasant setup and wonderful services at Chachagua. The entire estate is extremely eco-friendly and staff are very helpful and welcoming. Although it was the raining season there, but we managed to have fun. We also visited their farm and took pictures with farm animals. Room is spacious and clean and in particular, I love the rainforest style... More
