Santa Juana Lodge is a small and family-friendly countryside property inland from the Pacific coast.

This small, family-friendly lodge and working farm is just an hour’s drive inland from Quepos on the Pacific coast, a bumpy ride through palm plantations and up through rolling countryside to the property at 800m above sea level.

There are seven guest rooms, four of which are individual cabins. There are plenty of birds to spot in the foliage around the cabins which have no air-conditioning but well ventilated with screened doors and windows. It's a real away-from-it-all place, there's no Wifi and TVs tend not to receive any programmes.

Design is contemporary: the spacious cabins are beautifully furnished, featuring polished wood. There are lovely views over the emerald hills from the balconies’ hammocks and rocking chairs.  Meals are offered featuring traditional Costa Rican fare, including the ubiquitous rice and beans. Some cabins have a small kitchenette. Various activities are on offer such as horse riding, waterfall swimming, coffee and nature tours and visits to sugar-cane plantations.
