Poas Volcano Lodge
The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Poas Volcano Lodge is located just 45 minutes from San Jose, high up in the mountains and surrounded by cloud forest. The lodge has 20 acres of beautiful gardens and several on site hiking trails. It is a incredibly peaceful location that on a clear day provides excellent views of Poas Volcano and Braulio Carrillo National Park. The eleven rooms are spread out among the property with some in the main lodge and others in outer buildings.
The homely sitting room that features an old trunk of a Costa Rican oak tree as a centrepiece is a lovely place to enjoy a drink by the fire
All rooms come with either a private balcony or terrace, either garden or volcano views and all the modern comforts. Some rooms include a cosy fireplace to keep you warm at these higher altitudes. The centrepiece of the lodge, however, is the impressive sitting room that features an old trunk of a Costa Rican oak tree. Guests can also relax in the library that features a selection of books on the local area. Other facilities include a cinema and games room and the Bromelia restaurant that serves local cuisine and a fantastic home made breakfast!
