Accommodation type



Buena Vista Lodge

This is the perfect place to discover the natural beauty of Guanacaste and the surrounds.  The lodge is built in the grounds of a working Hacienda, giving a real Costa Rican flair to the place.  There are 86 rooms in total ranging from wooden cabins with a lake view, more secluded rooms or rooms in the main hacienda.  All have their own charm, with simple wooden furniture and bright soft furnishing and pictures providing splashes of colour, each with their own private bathroom.  There are 4 different restaurants serving different food, and in different locations on the property – why not try them all?  The food is carefully prepared using produce grown on the farm and fresh milk from the cows (milked by hand) and eggs from the chickens.  The idea is to be as self-sustaining as possible. The pool lends itself to relaxing during those rare periods when you are not off on one of the many tours on offer from easy hiking, a 400m water slide through the forest or exploring the countryside on horseback.


Buena-Vista-LodgeWhy go to Buena Vista Lodge?

Being located in Costa Rica’s adventure playground, there are plenty of activities to get your blood racing.  But that’s not all, this is also the perfect location to come and relax and recharge your batteries, completely surrounded by nature.  The grounds of the lodge have several hiking trails, beautiful vistas and friendly, helpful staff.  It’s easy to get the best of both worlds here with all the activities on offer and such a stunning area in which to relax and switch-off.

The beautiful tropical gardens are a haven for birds and there are plenty to be seen here.  Just sit and relax amidst the trees and you will see them right before your eyes.  There are also plenty of monkeys in the surrounding forest, it’s not unusual to see, and of course hear, large groups of howler monkeys or spot the cheeky white-faced capuchins.
