Macaw Lodge is a peaceful eco lodge on the site of an old farm at the edge of Carará Nature Reserve on the mid-Pacific coast. The main lodge consists of a magnificent oval construction built from sustainably sourced wood which houses eight bedrooms, each with two beds, restaurant, bar, communal lounge and reception. There are also four outside cabanas, each with a queen and two single beds.
All the accommodation is quite rustic with attractive wood flooring and walls, en suite bathroom, mosquito screens, bed linen made from bamboo fibre, ceiling fan and views of the lush gardens. There is free Wi-Fi available throughout the lodge.
The lodge was built with sustainably sourced timber and uses energy and water saving practices and solar power to provide electricity. The gardens surrounding the lodge provide an excellent place to relax, unwind and enjoy the birdlife. There is a private 100 hectares lowland and premontane humid forest reserve with a good selection of trails and beautiful waterfalls.
Private bathrooms, restaurant, bar, lounge, private parking, free Wi-Fi, ceiling fan and laundry service.
Over 150 species of birds occur in the private forest reserve including scarlet macaw, various trogons and toucans, three-toed sloth, mantled howler monkey, iguana and colourful tree frogs which can be found with a bit of luck.
Hiking and birdwatching in the Carará Nature Reserve and around the forest of the lodge. Off-site activities such as horse riding, mangrove boat trips, sea kayaking and snorkelling are also available.
Wild almonds, a favourite food of scarlet macaws, often grow in nearby villages, drawing the macaws out of the park. So keep your eyes open (and camera in hand) for unexpected encounters.

Fantastic! A real ‘au naturel’ experience. Lovey manager, and all very eco-friendly which was nice to see.
