Welcome to El Silencio Lodge

Discover our Luxury Eco Lodge in Costa Rica

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. 

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, 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.
