If you want to feel as though you’re living amongst trees and animals in the jungle, I can’t recommend Yatama enough. It’s a perfect mix of relaxing downtime, with exploring and hiking. Pedro is the personable, passionate, humble owner of Yatama. I was lucky enough...More

About
Description
Yatama is a rustic and remote full board (all meals included) lodge located deep rainforest in Horquetas (Sarapiqui) with an amazing trail system bordering Braulio Carillo National Park. With remote off road More access conditions. 2 hrs from San Jose, 8 jungle rustic rooms. Private bathroom, balcony, hammocks. Solar powered buildings and Trail guided hikes included with your stay. Excellent for bird watching, Herping and for keen nature lovers. The place is key for those travelling from Tortuguero or Limon to Arenal or San Jose and want to immerse in a non massive tourism location. Rooms are available with private bathroom or share bathrooms. Surrounded by garden and forest. There is 1 day nature hike included with your stay and 1 night walk to look for wildlife. We believe that conservation - working with local communities and offering reasonable lodging prices - are the key for sustainable development. Please keep in mind the lodge is for the real nature lover. Less
