Costa Rica: Central Valley

Chayote Lodge

Chayote Lodge is a new lodging concept where the unique combination of culture and nature meet to share with its guests one of the most valuable treasures of Costa Rica: their authentic lifestyle and culture.  Chayote Lodge lays in the outskirts of the mountainous Central Valley, located only 50 minutes away from San Jose Airport in Llano Bonito de Naranjo, and 1500 meters above sea level in the cloud forest.  It boasts 12 spacious bungalows, each featuring a private terrace with a breathtaking view of Poas, Barva, and Irazu Volcanos, as well as the Central Valley and the Nicoya Gulf in the Pacific Ocean seen on clear days.  Inspired by the rich coffee culture of the region, each nook of the property resembles a piece of the coffee picker’s story and their lifestyle. For instance, the bungalows will resemble the traditional coffee receiving stations known locally as “recibidores”.
