Chachagua Rainforest Hotel & Hacienda Review

At this working ranch, intersected by a brook, you can see caballeros (cowboys) at work, take a horseback ride into the rain forest, and look for toucans from your room or the deck of your cabaña (cabin). Each has a pair of double beds, an outdoor table, and nice showers enclosed in large, reflective windows where birds gather to watch their reflections while you bathe. For complete isolation, request one facing the rain forest. An open-air restaurant serves local meat and dairy products. The lodge is 3 km (2 miles) up a rough track—4WD is a must in rainy season—on the road headed south from La Fortuna to La Tigra.

    Hotel Bosques de Chachagua Review

    We visited this resort in Feb. 2011. We used the hotel website to make our decision. We purchased the Fodor's Costa Rica 2011 to use during our trip. The information in that edition about Chachagua Rainforest Hotel (even the name is new) seems out of date. The lodges and all main buildings have either been recently remodeled or rebuilt. The word "rustic" is fine as a description IF it means, beautiful, relaxing, comfortable and lovely! This is no camp-out, but a lush resort with individual lodges with furnishings that evoke the images and beauty of the rainforest.
