Relax at the family-run Yaba Chigui countryside lodge near an undeveloped stretch of glorious  Pacific coast in Costa Rica.

Popular Yaba Chigui Lodge is a family-friendly, away-from-it-all place to stay set beside a stream running through lightly peopled, tropical hills inland from the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Managed by a well travelled, English-speaking family it has four cabins on stilts where you’ll feel enveloped by the surrounding foliage. Each bears the a name in the indigenous languages of Costa Rica and Costa Rican culture is dear to the management team and their philosophy.

There are delightful outdoor showers and a small pool, massages are offered and breakfast is served but there's no restaurant: you’ll be helped to make reservations at the splendid French/Costa Rican eateries in Ojochal, the nearby village.

Activities can be arranged such as zip-lining, canton tours, snorkelling, horse riding, surf lessons, rafting and kayaking. The hotel will help you hire a car if you wish to explore further afield for example to travel up or down the coast or visit the Osa Peninsula.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: This is difficult! We loved Tortuga Lodge, Bosque de Paz and Aguila de Osa Inn. Made new friends who we will remain in contact.

    MG, Uckfield
  • Great mix of high adrenaline and chilled activities to suit all the family.

    JS, London
  • Everything felt "easy" and stress free. The most memorable aspect was driving through fantastic scenery, so much to see!

    AF, Cardiff
  • Highlights:- The friendliness of the people and the wildlife. 

    ME
  • It was all pretty memorable but the view of the Arenal volcano from our boat transfer across the lake sticks in my mind. It was a completely clear day and the volcano was steaming. Also the sleeping toucan on the El Refugio Twilight Tour. Also Rio Perdido was a lovely place for a couple of days relaxation.

    EW, Newport
  • So many memorable experiences - flying into Tortuguero, watching turtle hatchlings race to the sea, the boat ride out of Tortuguero, all the animals (including a mummy sloth with baby attached climb down a tree in the middle of a restaurant and then back up again), Monteverde scenery, Tamarindo beach, our son learning to surf, snorkelling in Cahuita and seeing a turtle and a nurse shark, how lovely the Costa Rican people are.

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

You couldn’t hope for a warmer welcome from the owners of this small, four-roomed hotel. It’s very peaceful here, surrounded by jungle with a relaxing pool and not far away from the coast for day trips to the Osa Peninsula or activities such as zip-lining.
