    El Silencio offers a great combination of cloud forest, waterfalls, hiking, birding and adventure with superb lodging. The views from the rooms are excellent and the property is criss-crossed with streams and a diverse range of trees. Would return in a heartbeat.

    We hope the peaceful and fun eco-adventures you lived helped create wonderful memories of Costa Rica's cloud forest. We look forward to your return! In a corresponding heartbeat!
