Eco-Lodge on the slopes of the Turrialba Volcano. Welcome to Guayabo Lodge! Comfort & Hospitality in Harmony with Nature. Enjoy astounding Panoramic Views!

Guayabo Lodge is a mountain eco-lodge with spectacular views of the Turrialba valley and the Talamanca Mountain range to the south, the Turrialba volcano to the north, Santa Cruz to the east and pastures and mountains to the west. On clear days you can observe from the lodge three of the four highest mountains of the country: the Chirripo (3.820 masl), the massif Cerro de la Muerte, with its highest peak at 3.431 masl and the Turrialba Volcano (3.340 masl). Although we are just a few kilometers from the Irazu Volcano (3.432 masl), you cannot see it from the lodge, but it can easily be visited.

Guayabo Lodge is a beautiful light and airy lodge in Costa Rica at 1500 meters above sea level, set in a rich garden, surrounded by the pastures of a dairy farm. It is at a 2 hour drive from San Jose Airport and at half an hour from the bustling town of Turrialba.

Our eco-lodge is in the centre of a region that offers a great diversity of tours and activities for all ages, like river rafting, visits to the Irazu volcano and Lankester Gardens, Birding, hiking, the Orosi Valley, and many more. Check our Tour Options, or consider our Packages. Guayabo Lodge also offers our guests the unique opportunity for learning more about local culture and food by taking a class at our Tropical Cooking School. Or participating in hands on activities in Community Projects and Schools in Costa Rica.

Our trademark is Comfort & Hospitality in Harmony with Nature. Feel at home and enjoy our beautiful gardens, panoramic views and healing lifestyle. As one of our clients wrote: "Guayabo Lodge is an enchanted place…a place of joy for every visitor".
