Surrounded by trees dripping with bromeliads and alive with butterflies and hummingbirds, Cloud Forest Lodge is the ideal hotel to be enveloped by nature.

Beautifully set within cool cloud forest, 10 minutes from the Monteverde Reserve (in the Santa Elena area), this lodge is surrounded by trees dripping with bromeliads and alive with butterflies and hummingbirds. Rooms at the lodge are spacious yet simple, designed to blend into their natural surroundings and deliberately lack modern amenities such as TVs and ACs, which of course have an impact on the environment. Instead extra blankets and energy efficient light bulbs are used creating a warm cosy atmosphere. The focus on the natural is carried through into the restaurant where fresh, natural ingredients and home-baked bread are always the order of the day. Guest rooms and restaurant have balconies where you can just relax and enjoy the flora and fauna.

What our clients say

  • Highlights: Bird watching at Tortuguero and snorkelling on the reef in Belize which was simply amazing.

    GW, Winchester
  • So much variety of wildlife and vegetation

    AB, Sandy
  • So many brilliant memories but if we had to pick one it was witnessing the sea turtle lay eggs on beach in Tortugero.

    PG, Galway
  • Most memorable experiences: Waterfall rapelling at el remanso, the internal flights on tiny planes, everything was good

    SM, Knaresborough
  • Costa Rica is a stunning country: in terms of its people, who are so warm and welcoming; its ethical basis and its phenomenal wildlife. Snorkelling at Cano Island was truly memorable as was having toucans feet away at La Paloma. We are so pleased we added on a partial transit of The Panamá Canal: the experience was one we shall never forget. The other think to mention is that Kathryn organised the tour exactly the right way round.: we met others who had done it differently and they regretted doing so.

    JS, Brighton
  • Most Memorable Moment?: There are a few but being so close to wildlife during the journey was amazing!!!
