This was our first stop in Costa Rica. Our flight into SJO arrived about 9pm, so Patrick arranged for a driver (for a fee) to pick us up from the airport— only 15 minutes away. Patrick and his wife are wonderful hosts and we awoke to a gorgeous place and a lovely breakfast on the patio. We had previously emailed... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of a trip with two octogenarians and my brother -in-law. The casitas were clean and neat with a decorative bathroom . The casita's do have an electric kettle available for use, interestingly only instant coffee was available along with tea bags. The grounds were as described, but limited for walking or... More

We came to Tacacori Ecolodge on the last day of our trip to Costa Rica, and were made to feel welcome even though we were early. Once we were there we didn't want to leave--the grounds are lush and full with flowering bushes and trees and birds and birdsong. We had spent two nights in an expensive hotel in San... More

We arrived at 1 am to a friendly greeting and lovely accommodations. Tacacori is on a sloping hillside overlooking a valley. But all you can really see is the beauty of the lush gardens full of flowers, fruits and many different birds. Each room is a separate casita, with modern plumbing fixtures and led lighting. Beds are comfortable and everything... More

We stayed at the Tacacori Eco Lodge for two nights in January and one night in February at the end with their hello-goodbye package. We also arranged our car hire through them, and transport to the Lodge from the airport. All the arrangements worked very smoothly. The car, from Thrifty, was delivered to the Lodge shortly after we had settled... More

Tacacori offers a beautiful place to stay before flying out of SJO or after flying in late. The owners are extremely helpful, and the grounds are meticulously kept up. Breakfast is typical Costa Rican fare--gallo pinto, toast with fresh fruit spreads, fresh juice, coffee and tea--plus whatever else is special that day. The casitas are eco-friendly and have wonderful bathrooms,... More

Based on Tripadvisor comments we chose Tacacori lodge to start and end our Costa Ric journey. We arrived on the airport at 19:30 so arranging a car then would be too cumbersome (especially with 2 kids). Instead we were picked up by Patrick and after a 20 minute drive we arrived at Tacacori lodge. We had a few beers, went... More

We spend the night at Tacacori Lodge before to flight out the country. It is conveniently located 30 minutes away from San José Airport on top of a hill in the country. There are 4 bungalows spread around a gigantic tropical garden. The host, Nadine and Patrick, are very attentive to their guests needs and very chatty about Costa Rica... More
