We had the luck to stay for 3 days at Yaba Chigui Lodge. First of all Ana & Juan are the best hosts ever. They are such warmhearted people and we wish them all the best for their future. It was such a pleasure to spend time with them in the morning and talk about all different topics. Whatever we wanted to know, they provided us with the best possible information (day trips, Covid-Testcenter for our flight back, restaurants and our upcoming trip to Corcovado) and helped us tremendously. Me and my partner stayed in the Cabécar Bungalow (one of the four bungalows) and it was really nice. The bed was very comfortable with a stunning view into the jungle. It is equipt with two showers (indoor and outdoor) the best was that the bungalow is designed to hear the wildlife during the night and that was magical. In the morning you can enjoy a marvellous breakfast which is prepared freshly from the hosts. Thank you Ana & Juan - we hope to see you again. Best Mehdi and Valérie …
If you’re looking for a beautiful, peaceful and welcoming haven to kick back and enjoy nature, look no further. This place is incredibly gorgeous, also because of its wonderful and caring hosts. Extraordinarily kids-friendly and filled with knowledge on the environment, the region - and life itself :-) We enjoyed every minute here!
I have so many wonderful things to say about Yaba Chigui. Juan and Ana are fabulous hosts! They even provided me local transportation since I did not have a car. The breakfasts were delicious, the room was amazing and so unique. The property has lush gardens and I truly felt at home here. My only regret is that I didn’t get to stay longer. You will love being here right in the middle of the rainforest. The outdoor private bridge patio was so cool. I got a special surprise as Howler and White Face monkeys visited the property while I was there. Truly an amazing experience and I can’t wait to come back!
This small lodge is full of big attributes. It is cozy, warm, comfortable, airy, bright and exciting. On this my second visit to the place the congos (monkeys) and the chicharras kept a symphony of sounds that made you feel in the middle of the jungle. The pool is warm and delicious. Ana and Juan are so willing to make you feel at home and they certainly do! Breakfast includes everything fresh, eggs, fruit, bread and coffee. An unforgettable experience you will want to repeat!
Beware of this hotel. At your own risk. They do not do as they say. They break promises to hold rooms. They are incompetent at every level. Firstly their reservation system doesn't work. Refused both my Visa and MC, but both cards working fine with other merchants. Then they made a reservation for me manually said they would hold for me until 8pm. While I was 5 minutes away at 7:11pm they cancelled. Shame to this hotel. No ethics.
