Floating like a cloud in the rainforest canopy near the Poas Volcano, El Silencio Lodge & Spa is one of the most secluded, tranquil and relaxing luxury hotels in the Costa Rican mountains, an eco-resort created to be a luxury retreat for travellers seeking out authentic experiences and a deep connection to nature.

Simple luxury and exhilarating adventures are the essence of the El Silencio guest experience, with a torch-lit forest dinner featuring farm-to-table ingredients from their organic farm and a curated wine list; scenic hikes in the Hummingbird Garden and cloud forest trails; or zip-lining through the forest canopy or rappelling down the face of a roaring waterfall. Tours of Espíritu Santo Coffee Hacienda or sampling local goods and cuisine at a nearby country market are other options.

The Lodge & Spa is located in picturesque Bajos del Toro on a 500-acre private cloud forest reserve flanked by the Juan Castro Blanco and Poas Volcano National Parks. Just 90 minutes from San José, the eco resort is a dream destination for Costa Rica mountain honeymoons, family vacations or wellness holidays.

El Silencio Lodge & Spa was the first Central American member of Relais & Châteaux.
