Located on the grounds of La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park and only a scenic one hour from San Jose International Airport, Peace Lodge blends the best of the rustic past with the natural beauty of the rainforest to embody the essence of Costa Rica.
Recently featured on the Travel Channel's "Honeymoon Hotspots International" as one of the most romantic destinations in the world for honeymooners, guests are greeted in reception with a post card view of the La Paz River Valley. Every room boasts a Jacuzzi, shower that transform into a waterfall with the turn of a knob and stone fireplace. While the rooms do not have A/C, the hotel sits in the Cloud Forest Region at over 7,000 feet above sea level, and temperatures are quite comfortable. Guests awaken to the sound of the rainforest and waterfalls. Picture perfect views of the La Paz River Valley complete the experience.
Peace Lodge features five waterfalls, 3.5 kilometers of paved hiking trails, Hummingbird Garden, Butterfly Observatory, Serpentarium, Orchid Garden, Frog Exhibit, Casita de la Paz, Trout Lake with Fishing, Aviary, Lagoon Pool & Jacuzzi, massage services, and, the gem of the property, La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park. Five magnificent waterfalls welcome guests to what has become one of Costa Rica's most popular spots.
All guests are welcome to enjoy the park before it opens and after it closes, the optimal bird and wildlife viewing times. Private walking tours are available. Peace Lodge also offers three different day tours -- Sarapiqui Canopy Adventure, rafting on the Sarapiqui, and Poas Volcano-Doka Estate Coffee Tour.
Guests can dine on the patio with a view of the Poas Volcano, enjoy Colibries Restaurant, rated Four Forks by the ICT, or snack at Big Trout Bar. Dinner becomes an event in the intimate dining room and bar at the Vista Poas Restaurant with its four-course meals.
