Chayote Lodge


Chayote Lodge

Built on the pillars of “Dream” and “Passion,” Chayote Lodge aims to combine local passion for coffee with the dream of offering guests a glimpse of a more rustic, untouched Costa Rica. Located 50 minutes from the San Jose Airport, this hotel is nestled among the rolling hills of Costa Rica’s breathtaking Naranjo region, where the rich soil and cooler climate allow local plant and wildlife to thrive. Surrounded by lush green pastures and coffee fields, the lodge offers incredible views from its guest bungalows, which are constructed and styled to be reminiscent of the traditional recibidores, or coffee receiving stations, of the area. The ideal way to start or end a trip—or enjoy your whole stay if you like—Chayote Lodge provides the perfect combination of relaxing getaway and authentic Costa Rican experience.
