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

We stayed at Tacacori for two nights. We were pleased with the location and proximity to Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfalls. It was our stop between Arenal and Drake Bay. You definitely need a car if you want to take advantage of your stay here. We stayed in Casa Bambu and it was just as pictured. The grounds are quite... More

My Daughter and I spent our last night in Costa Rica at Tacacori EcoLodge. We had stayed at two other hotels during our stay within the Central Highlands of CR. My Daughter said it was her favorite hotel of the three. The owners are lovely people, the place is wonderful, peaceful, tropical foliage, plenty of birds. We actually saw quite... More

My husband and I just returned from a fantastic trip to Costa Rica! We booked the Hello/Goodbye package at Tacacori Eco Lodge and we were so happy we did! Patrick and Nadine are fabulous hosts and took care of so many of the details for us. We were greeted at the airport, which was a big plus, and they took... More

I would like to add to my previous review. I forgot to mention a few things. Patrick was very responsive by Email in the months leading up to our arrival. He assisted us to arrange onward transport to our next destination. He picked us up from the airport quite late at night and was waiting for us when we arrived.... More

We stayed one night at the start and end of our trip - it is a 15 min drive from the airport but still allows you to feel immersed in the jungle. I know it is an ecolodge, and bugs are to be expected. The first night the room had no bugs, but when we returned for the second night,... More

We stayed at Tacacori for the first and last night of our trip to Costa Rica, the hello goodbye package worked out great for us! Conveniently located a short taxi ride from the airport, even though it feels very secluded from the city. We stayed in two different casitas, both beautifully decorated. Luxurious showers! The gardens are incredibly beautiful, full... More

we spent one night at Tacacori at the end of our trip in Costa Rica. Patrick made up the Casitas to accommodate our 2 families - they even made bunk beds for our friend 2 kids. We walked to Xandari for dinner on their recommendation - a way to see this lovely resort without having to stay there. Nadine drove... More
