Macaw Lodge

Central Pacific

Rating: Simple    

Macaw Lodge overview

Macaw Lodge is on the boundary of Carara National Park. The landscaped rainforest gardens are full of birds, including the macaws after which the lodge is named. The lodge is owned by a Costa Rican who has long been involved in forestry and ornamental plant production, so it's little wonder that the gardens are so special, with over 500 species of plants from around the globe.  
There are 8 bedrooms in the main building plus a 4 bungalows in the grounds, accommodating up to 28 guests in total. The rooms are all en-suite and have mesh windows to let the cooling breeze through. Bungalows, also en-suite, have a kitchen and balcony, and the largest sleeps up to 4 people.  
The lodge has been built from local wood, marble and stone uses solar power throughout. The organic vegetable garden supplies fresh produce, and the creative salads made with a variety of hand-picked leaves, are a revelation. You'll be served some lovely Costa Rican cuisine and can spend time in the kitchen learning some new skills if you wish. 
The lodge offers opportunities for rainforest walks and hikes, as well as specialist bird watching tours. Anyone with an interest in plants and gardening will find plenty to keep them occupied here. Beach visits, kayaking and snorkelling can all be arranged, as well as guided tours in Carara National Park. The lodge has a secluded yoga deck in the gardens, and a lounge where you can mix with other guests.

Mrs. Catherine Bernadat Ep. Frenzel

"Very nice location. But no tour of the property (only an explanation)"

Mr. Andrew Thompson (06/02/2018)
"

Isolated, stunning setting. Self-sustaining regime: impressive. Welcome and food = equal to Rancho Naturalista.

24 person capacity, in lodges built from the forest.

Trip to Carara National Park ( 1 ½ hours: driver Carlos = v chatty, attentive and cheery), north sector, primarily to see scarlet macaws. Good guide (Franklin), but we weren’t expecting to be part of a group – another couple were also present. However, we had excellent sightings of scarlet macaws.

Changed itinerary so we stayed at Macaw Lodge an extra day (as it was so beautiful there)instead of going back to San Jose.

SwissTravel re-arrangement: fast efficient, easy!

"Peaceful setting aroud a lake teeming with wildlife. Day and night jungle sounds though huge mesh covered open side wall to bedroom Eco centre trying to be fully sustainable"
