Located about an hour north of San Jose in a private eco-park and reserve, the intimate and romantic Peace Lodge enjoys a wonderfully interactive setting with nature.

La Paz Waterfall Gardens is a private wildlife and nature sanctuary complete with waterfalls, cloud forests, trails, an aviary, butterfly gardens, Jungle Cat Centre and is just 20 minutes from the Poas volcano.

The decoration and interiors of the Lodge itself is often likened to Rivendell in Lord of Rings with its grotto-like bathrooms, cosily cavernous rooms, stone fireplaces and bed canopies (some made out of twisted wood). There is a Jacuzzi-tub, private balcony and aromatherapy products with every room and the service is good especially when it comes to the detail, which makes your stay feel very personal.

Take a table at Vista Poas, the lodge’s intimate fine dining restaurant, and enjoy traditional locally-inspired Costa Rican flavours. The menu features grilled meats, homemade pasta, savoury seafood, and tender free-range chicken dishes. There is also a selection of wines that pair well with the gourmet meals. Breakfast is served at Tortillas Restaurant which boasts beautiful views over the cloud forest. Tuck into the expansive Costa Rican buffet at Colibries Restaurant, or sip on locally-grown coffee and enjoy fresh pastries at La Terraza near the waterfalls.

There are good facilities not to mention direct access to the park, meaning wildlife lovers or families will enjoy getting up close to hummingbirds, butterflies, monkeys and even jaguars. All guests are welcome to enjoy the park before it opens and after it closes.
