Excellent food, comfortable rooms, great rain forest experience. Away from most tourist but very close to sites and excursions. Everyone was nice and friendly. Joshi was a star, very welcoming and informative... we learned about so much about nature from him! Everyone was so nice at the restaurant and the food was spectacular and free breakfast! Don Carlos. The chef...

Although you can't see the Arenal Volcano from the property, Chachagua Rainforest Eco Lodge is still close and yet away from the tourist crowds. Unlike previous reviews, I found the rooms very clean and up to date. Also the road to the hotel has been recently improved and although a dirt road, any car should be able to get there...

The people were rude. Food was horrible. Only after your money. They have a few stray dogs at the property, one almost bite my wife. Food really was terrible and tasted old or kind of funky so we found a nice restaurant in La Fortuna. Stay far away from this place.

The rooms are super clean and the bed is super comfortable .there are windows with jungle view that makes you fill like you are in the wild. Saw a couple of tucans and Diego was kind enough to show us a sloth on the top of a tree. There is a little trail right from the hotel with a little...

Quaint, quiet bungalows. No a/c but with the windows open, the breeze and sounds of nature were peaceful, relaxing, and plenty cool enough. Laying in the hammock on the porch was like heaven. Would definitely stay again.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a couple nights before heading on to the Arenal Volcano and glad we did. The price is great and the staff was more than helpful going out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. We wanted to see as much of the rainforest as possible during our visit to Costa Rica...

Chachagus EcoLodge is a special place about 15 KM from La Fortuna and near the Arenal Volcano region. The lodges are private with beautiful porches and spacious bedrooms (no kitchettes). The Lodge is at the end of a long dirt road and requires a sturdy four wheel car to get to but the drive is worth it. Our host, Diego,...

We loved staying at Chachagua Lodge! It's right in the middle of the jungle with a stream running through it. The landscaping is beautiful and they even offer a couple of hikes on the grounds. I saw two toucans! The breakfast was also delicious with fresh juice and fruit along with the typical Tico breakfast. The bungalow we stayed in...

Excellent back to nature resort. Bungalows were great with a porch overlooking the forest. No air conditioning, windows or tv. It was cool for sleeping so we didn't need air. It would have been nice to shut the window when the birds woke at 6 am. Restaurant was good and handled my gluten, egg, tomato allergies.
