El Silencio Lodge and Spa

El Silencio Lodge and Spa 4

Discover a harmonious blend of pristine nature and tasteful luxury, at this leading eco resort in Costa Rica.

Tucked away in Bajos del Toro, set over 500 acres of cloud forest wedged between two national parks, El Silencio Lodge and Spa rises subtly from the green hillside above a meandering river in Costa Rica, an hour and a half north of San José. Cherishing its unspoilt setting, this rural refuge is devoted to nature – so expect plenty of eco-friendly materials, sustainable practices and outdoor activities.

    About El Silencio Lodge and Spa

    Nature’s bounty is all around you at El Silencio Lodge and Spa. You can’t help but feel bewitched by the cloud-shrouded forest, sweeping river and crashing waterfalls that make up the grounds here, and fascinating birdlife will make an appearance too – spot hummingbirds, blue tanagers and long-tailed quetzals. Relax in your exclusive villa or suite, guilt-free in the knowledge that no trees were cut down for the lodge (the land is a former grazing ground) and that sustainable materials like bamboo were used to build them. Organic produce grown from the kitchen garden, as well as local farms, are used in all cooking at El Silencio, and there’s even an eco-guide on-hand to show you around on nature walks. Connect even more deeply with your surroundings during an outdoor yoga session, or let expert hands soothe aching muscles in the jungle spa. When you want to venture further out, you’re just a hop and a skip from the national parks of Juan Castro Blanco and Poas Volcano where you can try zip-lining, horse riding and waterfall rappelling.
