    The people at Chachagua Rainforest Eco Lodge were the best part of the trip. Friendly and helpful, they were always available when you needed them. The guides they used were also great. They went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable and hassle-free. While eating lunch at their restaurant, we had two great wildlife sightings. On one day, there was a beautiful toucan in the tree right next to our table. On another day, there was a sloth with her baby in a tree near the restaurant. Amazing.

    Beautiful trails in the rain forest. The morning nature walk to the waterfall was really nice. The staff was exceptionally nice.

    Chachagua Shangri-la

    We had a very good stay, just one night but still good. Juan Diego was an awesome host and did a great nature tour. We live in Sarchi and still learned lots about Costa Rica from him. Our room was spacious and the jacuzzi was nice. Breakfast was good also. The happy hour was good but we wished they had a wine and maybe a cerveza on the happy hour menu. We like to drink. Lol. Overall a great experience on a beautiful property with great hosts, next time we will stay longer.
