Lonely Planet review

Family-run and family-friendly, this is an inviting and truly innovative retreat, where owners Davis and Meghan are dedicated to protecting the environment and investing in community. Built on 20 hectares of secondary forest, the solar-powered cabins are basic but full of character, with hand-crafted furniture and natural air-cooling. The restaurant serves incredible, fresh breakfast and dinner buffets, using local, organic ingredients.

Covered, flat walkways allow you to move between buildings in the complex without ever getting wet (after all, this is the rainforest!). Behind the cabins, 6km of paths wind through the jungle, where you're likely to spot sloths, monkeys, toucans, frogs, snakes and more. And when you can't take the heat, head to the nearby river swimming hole, complete with Tarzan swing from the bridge. Trail access is US$12.

Our independent authors have visited Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in La Virgen To Puerto Viejo De Sarapiquí.
