Simple beachfront hotel in a remote natural setting, offering a base for exploring the wildlife-rich forests and mangroves of Charco Verde Nature Reserve.
This family-owned hotel is located directly beside Charco Verde Nature Reserve and right on the fringes of a lovely, semi-private beach on the lake.
There is an abundance of exotic wildlife in the area – monkeys, deer and colourful birds are frequent visitors to the hotel grounds.Guests stay in rustic but spacious cabins, each with a veranda where you can take in the tropical breeze from your hammock. There is also a restaurant and bar overlooking the lake.
The main attraction of the hotel is the chance to explore the surrounding jungle, lagoon and mangrove forests on a network of trails. A particular highlight is ascending the nearby hill to enjoy the panorama over the island and towards Maderas Volcano. Bikes and kayaks are available for independent exploration.
What our clients say
Most memorable aspect: “Many. I liked the arrangement which was a good mix of independent trip and organised travel, I was able to make more out of it than in a group travel because I was able to ask the questions of my own interest about the country and felt it was a trip tailored to my interests but making most of the time I had available.”AV, Brockwell
