Spotlight Costa Rica – Hacienda La Isla Lodge in Sarapiqui


Hacienda La Isla Lodge is a beautiful colonial-style hotel located in the middle of the rainforest of Sarapiqui Costa Rica. This hotel, due to its location is perfect for everything, family vacations, traveling with friends and honeymoons.


But what’s so great about its location? Well to start it is, as I said before, in the middle of the rainforest, a 10 minute drive will take you to the Braulio Carrillo National Park. It is also minutes away from the Sarapiqui River, a very popular destination for those looking for some white water rafting. And last but not least it is just 1.5 hours away prom Poas and Arenal Volcanoes.

La Isla Lodge is simply beautiful. It has a Spanish colonial-architecture and only fifteen rooms. I got the chance to see the rooms and they are all beautifully decorated. Each room in this hotel is unique. They are not standardized like in other hotels; each one has a unique decoration. Plus the names of them all have historic meanings.

The rest of the hacienda is a beautifully landscaped garden where you can go out for a walk as you enjoy the company of birds and some other animals of the area.

Some other things the hotel offers are an open air restaurant area. It has a thatched palm roof and is surrounded by the garden. In it I enjoyed a menu filled with very high quality food. The dishes here were delicious, definitely above average.

Over all I really enjoyed my stay in this wonderful hacienda and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in Costa Rica.
