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: our 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 – first six accommodation opened by January 2015. They feature 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.


The architecture of Chayote Lodge has been carefully designed to incorporate the local elements of the coffee culture. The bungalows will resemble the Coffee "Recibidores" – Coffee Receiving Stations. These Recibidoresare nestled along the terraced roads and hills. At the end of the day, local farmers will haul their coffee cherries to the Recibidor to be processed in larger mills. These represent an iconic symbol in Costa Rican coffee culture and are the inspiration to each guest's Recibidor.

Nestled along a terrace with an impressive view to the Central Valley, Poas, Barva ,Irazú volcanos, coffee fields and pasture lands, each of the Recibidor boasts 535 sq feet of space. Each suite has been decorated by a local artisan's exclusive furniture design and inspired by our coffee culture and rural lifestyle. Enjoy a suspended balcony over a private coffee garden surrounded by cloud forest, from where the view of the morning sunrise over the Irazu Volcano will let the natural light fill your suite and awake you into a world of peace and beauty.
