Two hours from San Jose, right on the edge of the Carara National Park you’ll find Macaw Lodge, an eco-tourism resort that’s also a research and conservation centre. Sitting within a remote private reserve in the transition zone between wet and dry forests, the lodge is surrounded by 264 acres of biodiversity. Which means there are plants and animals here, that are you simply won’t find anywhere else.
The central lodge, and surrounding cabins are crafted from reclaimed or sustainably grown materials, and only accommodate 24 guests so you’re assured of a highly personalised experience throughout your stay.
You can do as much, or as little as you like here, but the main difference is that you can actually get involved in some of the conservation projects if you wish. You can learn about sustainability from some of our resident experts, practice yoga in the middle of a stunning bamboo forest, or pick up a book from the lending library and simply relax, and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Although the resort is completely off-grid, powered only by solar, there are charging stations and internet access available in the spacious, open ground floor of the lodge.
Dining is also in the main lodge, and the cuisine is plentiful, delicious and nutritious. Breakfast is often buffet style, while lunch and dinner are served at your table overlooking the botanical gardens.
Macaw Lodge is a sanctuary for the heart, soul, mind and body. Relax…
