Property Description

THE LODGE’ SITUATION

Nestled in between 2 volcanoes, the Eco-Lodge opens the door to the awe-inspiring Rio Celeste (blue river) and the trails of the Volcan Tenorio National Park, the new growing product on the tourism scene in Costa Rica (only 5 km from the Lodge by the newly opened access way Bijagua/Celeste Mountain Lodge/National Park). The area is part of the Biological Corridor Tenorio-Miravalles. There was a planned intention to be a pioneer in the region.

At 35 minutes from the Interamerican Hwy (major road in the country)
At only 1 hour 20 mn from Liberia international airport (regular & charter flights from USA, Canada, Europe) Presently a new concrete Hwy is being built between Liberia and Cañas, which will reduce our driving time by 20 minutes.

The Lodge is an ideal base to explore this region of great beauty, of exuberant nature and of pleasant inhabitants in this authentic Costa Rica that offers numerous discoveries and activities (hiking, nature, bird watching, floating or rafting, kayaking or tubing, horseback riding, hot springs etc.)

THE PROPERTY

The Eco-Lodge is situated on a 7 hectares (17.3 acres) property, split in 2 equal parts:
An open area of 2 hectares with the buildings and gardens + reforested area of 1 hectare
Primary protected transitional rain-to-cloud forest of 4 hectares adjacent to the National park Volcan Tenorio (12,000 hectares).
The neighboring properties also being protected, the Lodge is surrounded on 3 sides by a dense jungle forever preserved.
Wildlife abounds there such as the howler or the white-faced monkeys and other mammals, tapirs and traces of felines often appear on the grounds, excellent bird watching as already identified by experts in ornithology.
The views from the Lodge are extraordinary, with the Montezuma (3rd hump of the dormant Tenorio Volcano) as an arrogant green wall facing the property that sometimes disappears mysteriously in the mist. On the west side, the 5 peaks of the dormant Miravalles Volcano close the horizon as a dramatic theatre curtain. Down below lays the peaceful rural village of Bijagua.
The heights of the Eco-Lodge, 800 Mt - 2,500 Ft, offer a constant spring like weather with temperatures oscillating from 18 degrees C (65 F) to 30ºC (90 F), always caressed by a gentle breeze.

THE STYLE

The Eco-Lodge was built in 2007, in harmony with the surroundings in an innovative contemporary minimalist style under the appellation of “tropical architecture”, which opens spaces and abolishes walls, linking directly the different areas of the Lodge and inviting nature inside the building.

The Lodge was built under bioclimatic standards with the goal to adapt to local conditions and under our philosophy of Responsible & Ecological Tourism, boasting comfortable and functional lodging.

It is composed of a steel skeleton with natural teak wood and boards covering.
The materials used bring at the same time a rustic and modern touch; details blend simplicity and refinement, and this all the way to your dinner plate.

This style of architecture in lodging is not found in Costa Rica, being actually
kind of new, different, “avant-guard”.
