About the Property

3 Queen Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 (Including Double Pull-out Couch.

We've been written up! Check out the April/May 2010 issue of Su Casa magazine.

Bajas del Toro is an alternative to the intense heat of the coast with average temperatures of 26C / 79F during the day and cooler nights for comfortable sleeping. We are centrally located just one hour from San Jose's Juan Santamaria Airport between the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. You can head to either coast to explore what each has to offer. A contemporary design with soaring 30ft ceiling over the living and dining area, modern kitchen with a full set of appliances, granite counter tops, and a 3rd floor loft entertainment center. The front half of the chalet is glass to take full advantage of the awesome mountain views! We share the valley with El Silencio Lodge which offers superb dining and Spa facilities.

Activities: El Silencio Hotel – A couple of steeper hills and stairs but generally a fairly easy walk to three different water falls. Stay for lunch and take advantage of some of the Spa’s offerings. The hotel is just a 15 minute walk or a couple of minutes drive from the chalet.

The La Paz Waterfall Gardens – This is really beautiful. A gentle downhill walk through various displays and gardens for birds, butterflies and reptiles. You pass by a series of waterfalls. At the end a minibus returns you to the main lodge. There is a good souvenir shop and restaurant. 45 minute drive.

Various nurseries and coffee plantations to visit.

San Jose – The suburbs of San Jose have excellent dining, shopping and cinemas. An hour away.

Catarata del Toro – You can hike down into the gorge. About 10 minutes drive.

Activities cont...: Driving towards Bajos del Toro there are a couple of places to pull over and take in the view of the Central Valley where San Jose is located. The view is staggering at night so it’s worth the 15 minute drive some evening to see the lights.

Fly fishing. There are trout ponds just a couple hundred meters from the chalet and lots of rivers – bring your tackle!


Canopy tours.

Hot springs.

Bird/wildlife watching.

Cooking lessons from the El Silencio chef.

Para gliding.

White water rafting.

Horse back riding.

Poas Volcano

Activities cont...: Arenal Volcano, hot springs and lake (be sure to make a reservation).
