Chachagua Rain Forest Resort

Chachagua Rain Forest Resort
Just east of the world renowned Arenal Volcano in the Central Highlands, the Chachagua Rainforest Hotel and Hacienda is a 300-acre working ranch and eco-adventurers paradise. A perfect fusion of eco-friendly practices and generous hospitality, this hotel demonstrates a new vision of sustainability through its commitment to farming and environmental stewardship.

Imagine waking to an omelet cooked from eggs gathered that morning and herbs picked from the organic garden. The Chachagua Rainforest Resort brings this style of sustainability to its ranch in the lush tropical highlands. Though the land was first purchased to house his family's farm, Carlos Salazar has seamlessly blended and maintained this farm while pioneering the development of eco-tourism in the area. Near the scenic Arenal Volcano and adjacent to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, its an oasis for naturalists and outdoor adventurers.

Set amongst rich agricultural land, the resort is constructed of gorgeous indigenous woods and locally crafted furnishings. Eager to share their knowledge, programs on sustainable livestock production and environmental conservation are available through the resort. Looking for something constructive to do, visitors can help plant native trees to restore the local environment or immerse themselves in the rural style of life. Several trails on the farm lead to waterfalls, giant trees, and the dense jungle where guests can spot toucans, parrots, and wild cats. After returning from a long day exploring, visitors are treated to exotic cocktails and an innovative menu of Costa Rican field-to-fork cuisine.

When visitors are ready to move beyond tours of the organic garden and milking the cows, day trips to the Arenal Volcano and the surrounding areas can be arranged through the Chachagua Resort. Guests can choose between a variety of options that include: hiking the Rio Celeste, canyoneering, ziplining on the Mundo Aventura, sport fishing Lake Arenal, and white water rafting.
