El Silencio Lodge & Spa

A Symphony of Natural Wellness

El Silencio Lodge & Spa

Escape in eco-friendly fashion at El Silencio Lodge & Spa. Just 20 freestanding accommodations — built on stilts to minimize environmental impact — dot 500 acres of cloud forest (which is mostly private reserve). By offsetting carbon and using premium, planet-friendly materials, the zero-harm lodge promotes a holistic concept of tourism. A guest’s well-being derives not just from experiencing the stunning environs and unique culture of the surrounding communities, but also from taking part in preserving them. Hike to hidden waterfalls, enjoy cultural experiences, savor organic specialties and sleep in upscale “rustic Zen” suites.

Hotel Tip

Ideal destination to enjoy the wonders of the cloud forest, located between two national parks. Perfect location for first stop arrivals to San Jose Int. Airport, also ideal wellness destination.

Stayed 4 nights at this beautiful lodge. Their property provides a very Peaceful, Quiet and Beautiful destination for those looking for a more secluded vacation. Wish i had time to stay more nights! Friendly staff & ECO-Concierge were very knowledgeable and accommodating during our stay. All our excursions were one on one which was very good for us since this was our Honeymoon. On-site adventure park was very exciting with safety put first. Beautiful hiking trails with lots of wildlife and natural treasure to be found. This is a very ECO friendly establishment with conservatory at the top of their priority list. The food was delicious for every meal we had, and the SPA experience was phenomenal. If you need a place of serenity and a destination to clear your head, this is the place. Very Genuine Staff, will definitely be coming back to stay again!!

Beautiful location and nice accommodation. Dining was good but not great as one might expect from a CR members. We had 2 major nits: our arrival was rushed leading to later inconvenience and confusion about the room and facilities. Second, the trails were not adequately described or marked. As has always been our experience in CR, the entire staff was warm and attempted to be helpful and responsive. We would not return
