Our adventures on this trip were in the Monteverde area, but for our return home we didn't want the stress of the long drive directly from there to SJO airport. Tacacori EcoLodge was the perfect spot to spend our last night in Costa Rica: close to the airport, which allowed us a leisurely morning, while preserving the feeling of being... More

Tacacori was our last stop before heading home. The grounds were beautiful, the hosts were gracious, and the lodge dogs were adorable. The ecolodge is a short ride away from the airport and we had a delicious breakfast prepared for is before we had to leave. I would definitely stay at this place again and I recommend it to other...

This was our final stop on our honeymoon and it was the perfect joice for us. The bungalow was new and big and in a wonderfully made garden. Also the location was what we expected, away from the trouble. That there is no restaurant did not bother us, since we prefered to take the car to try some special places... More

When flying into San Jose or just visiting this is the perfect place to stay, skip the chains or higher priced alternatives. This is 4 separate bungalows tucked away and surrounded by beautiful well kept gardens. You have privacy and only the sounds of nature. We did the hello - goodbye package staying 2 nights at the start of our... More

We arrived here late at night after a long day of travelling (they arranged the airport transfer for us) and although it's near the airport, this place is an oasis of calm and jungle quiet. Owned by a lovely French couple, there are four separate and private bungalows built in luscious gardens. The shower is excellent and the breakfast delicious.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in January at the beginning of our Costa Rican adventure. After maneuvering through Friday night 5pm traffic, we found our way up the hill to Tacacori with no problems. GPS helped, but there are also signs guiding the way. We were assigned Casita Bambu. It was very clean and spacious and perfect for the... More

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica and just loved it. Very cozy and private, yet only 15 minutes from the airport. Which I know sounds crazy but is true. Our cabin was perfectly clean and comfortable with a great shower with good, hot water. We enjoyed the tea service on our terrace as we soaked in... More

As many did, we chose to stay here because of its proximity to the airport (in our case, for the flight out). Though Alajuela is a fairly busy city, this joint is up on a hill and enclosed, so it feels much more secluded than it actually is. The gardens are beautiful here, and the rooms are well-furnished. The hosts... More

Great garden, friendly and kind owners, good breakfast with great view of the garden and colibris, butterflies and bigger birds sitting in the branches. The cabins are great as well, nicely designed and spacious. It was a great start into our costa rica vacation. The only thing I didn't like about the place was that the entrance is right in... More

Pros: Location, clean, great service, beautiful grounds, private Cons: Our room felt a bit humid due to heavy downpours of the rainy season but it was minor for what this place offers. Tacacori is Fantastic! This is not how I would typically describe a hotel 15mins from any international airport but this place truly is that. As first timers to... More
