A lovely peaceful spot away from the crowds with beautifully maintained garden. The cabins are tucked amongst the greenery and offer complete privacy.
Lovely balcony to enjoy breakfast overlooking these extensive gardens .
Host was very friendly and accommodating and full of wonderful advice on the area.
Less than 1/2 hour to airport.
Would return.

As a Birder I am always looking for a combination of lodging with birds close to areas that I am birding in. Tacacori EcoLodge really exceeded my expectations. The rooms which are more in the form of self contained bungalows are strategically located in their spectacular estate. You are surrounded by old growth trees and natural gardens. I had good birding just walking the gardens and the lodge is located close to the Poas Volcano which is the area I birded in.
The rooms are well equipped with electrical outlets for charging all of the items I normally carry, The also have the European 230V receptacles in the rooms.
Breakfasts which were included were a real treat. Your hostess Nadine provides an excellent breakfast. I have stayed in many expensive hotels throughout Costa Rica and this was by far the best.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

Fantastic! Clean, quiet and simply fantastic. For sure will be going back if I fly to San Jose again. Being so close to the city you would'nt think that such a quiet and beautiful place would exist so near... It's very well kept, the gardens and trees are beautiful. Breakfast is included but need to go out for dinner. Who cares?

This is a great jumping off point for the airport, or making day trips to surrounding parks etc. The grounds are beautiful! We were not able to see the Volcano near by for one of our day trips so we spent the day next door with a day pass to Xandari Hotel. The day pass included lunch, walking the grounds with a beautiful waterfall, and use of the swimming pools/hot tubs for $35 per person. This is a nice deal they have worked out with Tacacori Eco Lodge. The breakfast was fresh and light, and the owner is very sweet and helpful! If you love humming birds, you will love this property. The grounds are spectacular, filled with lots of birds and plants! It is in a neighborhood, so you can hear some traffic, barking dogs, motorcycles etc at certain times of the day. The taxi driver they arranged for us at 4:45 a.m. was GREAT! If you MUST have wifi in your room, ask for a room close to the breakfast area. (Which was my favorite Casita...the Orchid Casita)

We loved the peaceful, beautifully landscaped property and felt like we were the only ones there. The casita was immaculate and we greatly appreciated the staff's help in having a rental car delivered to the property. We enjoyed visiting Alajuela and Territorio de Zaguates which were not far from this lovely property.
