The beauty of El Silencio Lodge lies in its eco-credentials, blissful cloud forest setting and attention to every detail.

Here, floor to ceiling windows in the lobby, lounge and restaurant ensure that El Silencio’s surrounding hills, winding river and waterfalls are never out of sight, something which can also be enjoyed from the comfort of your own terrace or while wandering the grounds of this private forest reserve.

The lip-smacking food served in the restaurant is all locally sourced or grown onsite, there’s a picturesque, semi-open-air yoga studio and endless outdoor activities to enjoy with the lodge’s superb guides. Whether it’s a cooking class, Costa Rican coffee sampling, birdwatching walks, hiking or horse riding, even waterfall rappelling and zip-lining, you’ll find it all here, not to mention the private riverside meals and wine tasting – for something even more special!

From recycled water bottles to the onsite tree planting program, lamps made from driftwood and organic kitchen-garden, El Silencio is as keen on sustainability and protecting this pristine eco-system as it is on providing a luxury hotel experience, meaning that lucky guests have the best of both worlds while exploring the untouched wilderness of Bajos del Toro.

Accommodation

The suites and villas of El Silencio are of supreme quality, though lean heavily on a simple ‘back to nature’ approach, with their modest – though quality – décor, quaint furnished terraces and locally sourced organic toiletries. With outdoor Jacuzzis, a fireplace and lounge area in certain cabins, there is no doubting the level of luxury here, and as much as any cloud forest stay is invariably focused on the stunning surrounds, wildlife and birdwatching walks, accommodation at El Silencio is, nonetheless, exemplary. 

Location

Bajos del Toro in the Central Highlands, 90 minutes (roughly 70km) from the Juan Santamaría International Airport. El Silencio is easily reachable by road on any multi-centre itinerary within Costa Rica.
