My husband and I just spent 11 nights at Pachamama and we will definitely be back! The location is perfect as it is out of the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa yet near enough for anything you need or want to do there. There is a nice beach just across the street. Its quiet with the jungle sounds filling... More

My husband and I stayed here for 9 nights. We rented the bungalow which was perfect for us. Hot water, kitchenette, queen bed with mosquito netting, amazing veranda, A/C, ceiling fan plus, the best host we could ever ask for, Franz. Don't expect USA resort style here. It is rustic but comfortable. Everything was clean and tidy, inside and out.... More

We stayed for three nights at Pachamama, it was the end of an intensive three-week trip and it was the perfect finish of our holiday. The lodge is beautiful and quiet, close to the beach and the host, Franz, is very friendly, relaxed and helpful. It's possible to rent surfboards, an ATV to discover the beautiful neighbourhood and Franz drove... More

We highly recommend Pachamama. We had just the best time. We visit Pachamama with our family. The rooms are nice and spacious. A kitchen, a private outdoor space to have meals and an outdoor shower were a few of the many good points of this lodge. Franz was a great host, full of tips about places to eat and to... More

Pachamama is a beautiful, quiet retreat surrounded by nature. In addition, Franz will do whatever is required to make sure your stay goes smoothly, and is more than happy to help organise for you to do all the things Mal Pais and surrounds offer if you want to get out and about and explore the stunning national park and beaches,...

We stayed at Pachamama during our trip in Costa Rica after the Christmas. The place is really easygoing and relaxing with beautiful garden around. The owner Franz is really friendly and helps you with anything you need. He also arranged us a lovely yoga teacher Tracy to come to Pachamama and give us a yoga lesson at the garden -... More

We stayed at Pachamama for seven nights over christmas and had a superb, relaxing stay. The grounds are beautiful, bungalow was clean, comfortable, had a great little kitchenette, and Franz is an absolute gent as well as a great host. He would drive us to the beach in the morning to go surfing with him along with suggesting places to... More

Our bungalow was wonderful, with all the needed amenities. The air conditioning was put to good use! Franz, the owner, was very helpful with everything and went out of his way to make sure that we had everything we needed. Pachamama is in a peaceful area of Mal Pais, which was perfect for us.

Well worth the half day bus ride/ferry/bus to get there! At the Cruze we got off the bus and walked to the left with heavy backpacks and guitar in the hot afternoon sun, about 20 minutes. We had a warm welcome from Franz and crew. All of whom became fast friends. We chose a bungalow for two, with a shared... More
