About the Property

Lodge, 6 Bedrooms all detached, and private, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

a jungle adventure without sacrificing comfort! We offer private comfortable cabanas and cabins with private deck or veranda. We are a self sustainable eco lodge built mainly from renewable, reclaimable resources.

Situated in the fertile Macal River Valley and set on the beautiful Macal River. We offer a 50 acre private nature reserve as well as gardens and well groomed nature trails. There is an abundance of flora and fauna affording some especially rewarding bird watching.

We have a full service restaurant and bar on the property as well as a gift shop.

The lodge is built in typical Mayan style architecture,and is the perfect get away for someone wanting an authentic complete escape from modernity to rejuvenate themselves in a peaceful, tranquil, jungle retreat, while enjoying the adventure of a lifetime.

Our 6 separate cabanas are furnished with kerosene lamps for lighting, adding to the ambiance, as well as electricity, private hot water baths, private deck with screened verandas, and screened windows.The rates are based on double occupancy and is per cabin per night. Our cabins are designed to fit two to four persons comfortably and are perfect for family reunions, honeymoons, friends getaways and yoga retreats.


Attention Yoga Instructors!!!
Ask about our Yoga Retreat Specials. We have recently added a 18X18 yoga platform under the shade of an ancient Guanacaste Tree facing east. Minimum six persons and three nights stay.

Beautiful prime central location for touring many sites of particular interest and natural beauty. You will not be disappointed should you choose this unique, small, owner operated lodge !We are geared toward the more independent travelers, but are more than happy to assist with tours such as the magnificent ATM cave, Green Hill Butterfly farm, Caracol, ziplining,and is also the ideal spot for all the active Ornithologists out there.
