el sabaneroLocated in the province of Guanacaste at a few minutes’ drive from the famous Tamarindo Beach, El Sabanero eco lodge is prettily positioned between a lush tropical landscape and a perfect beach setting. The property practices a number of sustainable initiatives such as energy conservation, toxic/waste minimization, recycling programs and community development activities, among several other significant steps for protecting its natural surroundings. Guests can enjoy everything from a world class golfing session at the Hacienda Pinlla to surfing on the action-packed waters of Playa Grande and Tamarindo beaches. El Sabanero Lodge is an invigorating mixture of pure natural pleasure (think waking up to the sounds of howler monkeys and witnessing exotic butterflies), top notch facilities, comfortable accommodation and a wide range of nature/adventure based activities to experience the unsullied energy and infallible charm of Costa Rica’s north Pacific region.

Amenities and Activities

The property boasts of several first class amenities which are designed to enrich the guests’ experience. There is a luxurious infinity mosaic pool (that merges nicely with its incredible green mountainous background) complemented by an indulgent Jacuzzi spa (which offers soothing relaxation in the backdrop of breathtaking valley vistas). In addition to this, the lodge features an intimate family dining restaurant- the Palapa Rancho restaurant (serving local and international cuisine made by using handpicked locally grown ingredients). Guests can enjoy a range of convenient services such a mini-bar, wireless internet and laundry service. El Sabanero is also equipped with top notch facilities for conducting corporate outings, yoga retreats and weddings/honeymoons.

El Sabareno’s strategic location makes it the perfect starting point for a large variety of activities from surfing at the nearby Tamarindo Beach to enjoying thrilling sports fishing to embarking on an exhilarating scuba diving ‘mission’. The less intrepid can participate in a range of land excursions such as guided nature walks through the Diria wildlife refuge and the Marino Las Baulas National Park (the resting place for leatherback turtles). Other tours organized by the lodge include zip lining, snorkeling, rafting tours, turtle nestling tours (from November to January), horseback riding and spectacular sunset cruise trips.


Accommodations at the El Sabanero eco lodge are available in the form of chic and elegant chalets, which are made out of locally grown teak trees. The unique yet stylish lodges are created with a signature Costa Rican architectural technique. Each unit is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, lending it an air of privacy and tranquility.

Each chalet features a queen size bed (adorned with strikingly embroidered sheets), an independent bathroom, air conditioning and an expansive deck (complete with cowboy type rocking chairs).
