Chachagua hotel

Located on the foothills of the lush Tilaran Mountain in one of the most ecologically rich areas of Costa Rica-La Fortuna, the Chachagua Rain Forest Lodge is a perfectly manicured oasis that brings together vacation luxury, comfortable amenities, world-class service and inspiring natural surroundings. It is actually a working ranch, encircled by a biological station (which makes the total area of the property about 300 acres). This quaint, self-sufficient lodge sources most of its kitchen ingredients (eggs, milk, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, herbs and other produces) from the in-house farm. The Northern lowland where Chachagua is located directly leads to the famous Arenal Volcano, which makes this region highly popular with nature aficionados and eco-tourists. The captivating La Fortuna town, located at a few minutes from the lodge, is a tourist hub for its large selection of bars, restaurants, shops and other entertainment options. From enjoying a lazy read on a personal hammock to listening to nature buzzing around you in an unperturbed environment to relishing a home cooked meal of the fresh fish caught by you, Chachagua offers its guests several unadulterated natural experiences. In short, it’s a plush and pleasant retreat that is designed to replenish tired spirits and provide visitors a memorable experience in sustainable tourism.
