The SpaceSet on a mountain top cloud forest with year round cool tropical climate, views and water falls. Stay in a newly constructed cabin, hike the mountain and explore 360 degrees of nature at every step. Views of Volcan Turrialba and full moons can be seen from the comfort of your bed
Temperature rarely reaches much above 85F in the day and 65F on the coldest nights so no need for AC or Heating here. We recommend guests bring jeans, socks and sweaters.
Visitors see amazing things here. Brilliantly starry nights and full moons, world class bird watching, an orchid exhibition with over 100 specimen. The pure life.
Hosts live in the main lodge, a comfortable distance from the cabin and can set up private waterfall, swimming hole, and jungle tours. Guest AccessGuests have access to mountain hiking trails, swimming holes, tilapia pond, water falls, and their private yoga/dance/music/relax space. Interaction with GuestsFirst off, we help guests get acquainted with the home area, which covers about 5 acres.
Each day, we can set up guided tours to the guests to explore something special in the surrounding 85 acres of rain-forest. That could include trips to private swimming holes, waterfalls, and intense jungle hikes.
Our host Mariluz runs Mari's Place, a private dining experience offering traditional Costa Rican dishes and grill favorites in a private picturesque setting overlooking the river. Mari's Place is walking distance from the accommodation and is quickly becoming popular with foodies. Our guests often take advantage of having Mariluz as their private chef for their entire stay. Feel free to send a message to inquire about getting an all inclusive rate.
If guests have questions, or need anything, we are here to help. But we are definitely interested in giving guests their privacy. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is safe and private. Our closest neighbors are 1km away, and we look out for each other. You will not find other tourists around, in fact, you won't find too many people around. It's safe to say the animals in our town outnumber the people, and we're OK with that.
For dining, Mari's Place is walking distance from the accommodation and is quickly becoming popular with foodies. Read over our reviews to get an idea what past guests have said about the food.
We offer two other Cabins for rent across the road so you might bump into another couple or family. Getting AroundWe are centrally located between San Jose and the Caribbean towns of Tortuguerro, Limon, Puerto Viejo and Cahuita. You can be in SJ in two hours or on the beach in two and a half. But once on the mountain, many guests don't think to leave till it's time to go. The town of Guapiles is down below and we often arrange guest pickups at the bus terminal because you will need a 4x4 to calmly drive up here. Other Things to NoteLooking for an off-road adventure? The roads here are rocky (and rock!). We cater to those with a love for the road. Like the saying goes, if it happens on two wheels, it's cools with us. Unless you are biking or taking your motorcycle up here, you will need a 4x4. Sorry, that economy compact car might not make it up here without making you liable on that damage-insurance policy. Heck, it might be worth it though ;)
If your party is bigger than 4, we offer two other cabins across the road that can accomodate six people in total.
