Chayote Lodge, San José & Central Valley, Costa Rica

Chayote Lodge is a boutique, coffee-themed hotel located in Costa Rica's mountainous Central Valley, approximately one hour from San Jose. Inspired by the rich coffee culture of the region, the lodge's design reflects various elements of the coffee making process - the guest bungalows, for example, have been designed to resemble the traditional coffee receiving stations ("recibidores").

Each of the 12 spacious bungalows feature a private terrace with wonderful views of the surrounding valley and volcanoes on a clear day. Meals using fresh local produce are served in the Quelites restaurant, which has a cosy fireplace and also an outdoor terrace cafe to enjoy the views on warm days.

Amongst the activities available to book locally are hiking, bird watching in the surrounding cloud forest and coffee tours.
