Floating like a cloud in the rainforest canopy near the Poas Volcano, El Silencio Lodge & Spa is one of the most secluded, tranquil and relaxing hotels in the mountains of Costa Rica. Our eco-lodge hotel was created to be a sustainable yet luxury retreat for travelers who seek out unique and authentic experiences and a deep connection to nature and the genuine Costa Rican “Pura Vida” lifestyle.
Simple luxury and exhilarating adventures are the essences of the El Silencio guest experience, and our Eco-Concierge is available to schedule unforgettable experiences. Perhaps a torch-lit forest dinner featuring farm-to-table ingredients from our organic farm and curated wine list. Scenic hikes and horseback riding tours in the Hummingbird Garden and cloud forest trails. Zip-lining through the forest canopy or rappelling down the face of one of three roaring waterfalls on our property. Tours of Espíritu Santo Coffee Hacienda or sampling local goods and cuisine at a nearby country market.
El Silencio Lodge & Spa is tucked among the valleys and waterfalls of picturesque Bajos del Toro, which has been declared a UNESCO cultural heritage site. We offer the only luxury hotel experience in the area on a 500-acre private cloud forest reserve flanked by the Juan Castro Blanco and Poas Volcano National Parks. Just 60 minutes from San Jose via the new road through Sarchi, our eco-resort is a dream destination for Costa Rica mountain honeymoons, family vacations or wellness holidays. As our guest, you will enjoy exceptionally warm, friendly and personalized service at every moment of your stay.
