There is something perfectly perfect about this eco friendly Costa Rican boutique hotel. Located in the cloud jungle of Bajos del Toro, the El Silencio Lodge is a green-luxury wellness retreat that won't break the bank. Set in a 500 acre property and flanked by two national parks, it is the type of place where daily stress is quickly hushed by nature’s own peaceful melodies...and on a day like today, when one Ms. Whitney Kimmel, has a serious case of the 'Monday's'...its exactly where I'd rather be.
Renting one of the sixteen cabins can cost you as little as $170 a night, which includes 3 daily meals harvested from their own organic gardens, an Eco-Concierge that can help you plan your complimentary tree planting exposition, in-room health snacks incase you get hungry between meals, an enticing outdoor hot tub located on the private deck of your suite, a gas fireplace, and spectacular mountain or river views.
Get Me There: The Lodge is located only an hour from the Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) and they will happily provide a private shuttle upon your arrival. One of the many things I love about Costa Rica is the great flight deals you can find from LAX... so set your Kayak.com reminds and book a trip the next time you see a deal that's too good to pass up.
One last note: This hotel is best for adults, but they do allow children over 8 and even give special lodging rate of $95 per night to children between 8-10 years old.
