:1661 Rio Celeste
Nestled in between two volcanoes, this eco lodge opens the doors to the astonishing Rio Celeste and the trails of the National Park Volcano “Tenorio”, being located at only 5 kms (about 3 Miles) from its entrance on the new access road to the park from Bijagua and 1 hour from the Liberia Airport, With a new road open the nearby the village of Bijagua has approximately 2,000 inhabitants and 3,000 more in the surrounding hamlets and is basically agriculture oriented. On a mountain top, this pioneer Eco lodge sits on a 3 hectares green area and 4 hectares of protected primary forest. Because neighboring properties also consist of protected areas, deep jungles surround the lodge with the national park Vulcan “Tenorio”. This lodge is located at 800 meters (2400 ft) and includes its own private reserve made of primary transitional rain-to-cloud forest.
This Lodge of 18 rooms boasts a very innovative, contemporary design, altering traditional parameters in hotel architecture, opening walls and spaces, blending the different areas and inviting the beauty of the surroundings right inside the building. The lodge has been designed under bio-climatic standards in order to adapt to the local conditions and under our Responsible Tourism philosophy, offering a comfortable, yet functional accommodation and stay. The materials used bring a rustic and modern look together, and the details, simplicity and refined creativity, all the way to your plate.
Around the building and on our own Celeste Trail of 2 kms(about 1.2 miles) in the primary forest, wildlife abounds, often allowing to spot and observe local fauna such as monkeys (howler and white-face), an extensive bird species list such as toucans, hummingbirds or parrots and even rare species, also butterflies and mammals as the tapir roams the property. One will also enjoy the rich diversity of the vegetation with centennial trees or vines.
