Our son married his longtime girlfriend at the Peace Lodge this week and it was in many ways the loveliest wedding I have ever attended. The setting was beautiful, a waterfall in the background, lovely flowers and a caring staff that took great pride in making sure everything was perfect. The reception was by the trout pond with great food,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located less than one hour from the San Jose (Juan Santamaria) Airport, the Peace Lodge is the perfect place to begin or end your vacation. You don't need to spend your first or last day in a city hotel. Please come spend them in the rain and cloud forest with us and still be close to the airport. We are also only 20 minutes from the Poas Volcano, another "must see" attraction in Costa Rica. ... more   less
