This was my second time visiting Mal Pais and Pachamama, and i can't say enough the amount of fun i had there. Its a great place to relax in the Jungle and watch the monkeys in the trees above you, or its just a short walk across the street to go sit by the ocean. If your looking to go... More

This was my 2nd and definitely not my last time visiting Pachmama! There are so many things to do and the people at Pachamama are so helpful to make sure you get to do everything you want in Mal Pais. I could hangout in the garden all day and not feel that I wasted a day just because it's so... More

Pachamama is my favourite place to stay in Costa Rica. The bungalow is clean and has a kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook for yourself. There is a large outdoor space (shared between two bungalows) with hammocks, couches, tables, and even an outdoor shower. The garden is beautiful thanks to Amancio! The howler monkeys even come over some... More

We stayed there my sister and myself for three nights and we had really nice experience. The lodge is very charming surrounded by a tropical garden. There is a direct access to the beach at 200 meters. The owner Franz is very welcoming and made his best to facilitate our stay by helping us book activities to do in the... More

It's amazing how everything is detailed with good taste and convenience. Very good located, both Franz and Venancio tried to make us feel at home, and they succeed. Rooms are really full equipped and we did not miss a thing, We are looking forward to go back as soon as possible.

Pachamama was our favourite stay in Costa Rica due to many reasons: - Franz, the owner, is a wonderful person and gave us fantastic recommendations (e.g., beaches, surf lessons). While we often felt ripped off in Costa Rica, he was one of the hosts you can trust and who makes you feel at home. - Our bungalow had a fairly... More

Pachamama Hotel is the perfect hide-away. Other than sliding open a gate to enter and exit the property, you will not feel as though you are at a hotel. Franz, the proprietor, has nestled his cabanas into the forest foliage at the base of a hill in Malpais. The result is a feeling of solitude and harmony with the rustic... More

We'll be back! Next time hopefully with some friends or family so we can rent the house on the property. We stayed in the 2nd floor bungalow, it was perfect with all the amenities including a kitchen so we didn't have to eat out every meal. We were tucked into the beautiful Costa Rican scenery, away from the hustle and... More

Hey this was nice, totally chillaxed, great Host in Franz, really made me feel like I'd lived there all my life. Beach is real close by and has a no break area, great for old farts like me, get out to the back line real easy and can launch a stand up paddle any state of tide. But Pachamama was... More

Pachamama was an oasis! It was quiet, beautiful, super clean, tranquil and relaxed. But best of all, was the owner and host, Franz. Many reviews mention his dedication and hospitality and I agree whole heartedly! He really made you feel like an old friend. He took care of everything, morning surf trips, supermarket trips, recommendations to anything you can think... More
