Peace Lodge is located on the grounds of La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park and includes use of all the amenities of the park. The rooms are designed with unique amenities such as oversized balconies, Jacuzzi tubs, waterfall showers and grand stone fireplaces. You will experience the true essence of the Rain Forest through each of our rooms.

Peace Lodge - Deluxe Room Deluxe Hotel Room (accommodates 2 guests-possible rollaway for children) For those who want to feel the Rain Forest even when they are inside, this is the room for you. This 800 square foot room has an unbelievable garden bathroom designed for the true nature lover. A seven-foot waterfall comes to life as you are soaking in the Jacuzzi tub in the garden. There is also a garden shower and indoor shower. All of this is surrounded by beautiful indoor landscaping and illuminated by a skylight. The room also has a Jacuzzi tub and hammock on the balcony for those picture perfect star gazing nights. A grand gas fireplace to view from the king size canopy bed makes the room complete. There is also satellite TV, stereo system, refrigerator, and coffee maker.
Standard Hotel Room (accommodates 2 guests-possible rollaway for children) This 650 square foot room has a king size canopy bed viewing a grand gas fireplace. The interior design of the room is only surpassed by the view from the balcony of the La Paz River Valley and the Poás Volcano. The best way to enjoy the view is from the Jacuzzi tub or swaying in the hammock on the balcony. The bathroom has an oversized mosaic tiled tub and elaborate waterfall shower. There is also satellite TV, stereo system, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Standard Room
Peace Lodge Villas Monarch Villa (1 bedroom plus loft, 2 full baths, accommodates up to 5 guests) Although it is named after a butterfly, it really should be called our Honeymoon Suite. Since opening, we’ve had many honeymooners enjoy our villa and we believe caused a few others to propose (including the owner of Waterfall Gardens). The 1,200 square foot villa leaves nothing to be desired. First there are not one, not two, but three fireplaces to set the mood for this wonderland in the Cloud Forest.
The master bedroom alone invokes thoughts of romance with its king size canopy bed set before a gas fireplace. The oversized master bathroom, complete with full Jacuzzi tub, fireplace and waterfall shower will make you wonder why you aren’t staying longer. The villa is complete with a luxurious living room, a two-story fireplace and a second floor loft with a queen size bed, a single bed and full bathroom. If that isn’t enough there is a kitchenette and dining area with refrigerator, coffee maker and a microwave oven. But, the villa would not be complete without a view of the La Paz River Valley and the Poás Volcano and how best to enjoy them but from the Jacuzzi tub on the balcony. But don’t worry, when you’ve had enough ‘nature’ for the day, the villa is well equipped with a stereo system with speakers in every room and satellite TV in both the living area and master bedroom.

Peace Lodge - Relaxing Pool With the Peace Lodge we endeavored to create the finest quality accommodations in Costa Rica and quite possibly in the world. To do this we put our master craftsmen to work sculpting a uniquely themed environment for your enjoyment.

We combined the use of naturally shaped wood beams and hand laid hardwood flooring along with river stone and slate to render an atmosphere that encompasses the rustic past and natural beauty of the rainforest and Costa Rica.

The park includes 3.5 kilometers of paved trails that showcase 5 magnificent waterfalls and a kilometer of frontage on the La Paz River. Along this path you will find spectacular gardens with information about the plants and their peculiarities.

Our Hummingbird Garden attracts 23 of the 57 species of hummingbirds found in Costa Rica. You will find more species of hummingbirds here and more information about hummingbirds than in any other location in Costa Rica. The birds have become incredibly tame so you can approach within inches and sometimes even touch them. Our educational exhibits describe in detail the behavior and physical characteristics of these amazing creatures.

The Butterfly Observatory is a magnificent enclosure and the largest of its type in the world. In the on-site laboratory you will be fascinated by your close encounter with these insects as they develop through their lifecycle. You will watch butterflies being born from their pupa and you will be able to handle and release them into their first flight.

Peace Lodge - Waterfall

We also have many bird feeders along the trails to attract wildlife. We offer private guided tours for bird watching, and the guests can even work with the butterflies; collecting eggs, feeding the caterpillars, and processing pupas.

Activities in the area include tours to the famous Poás Volcano, Doka Coffee Plantation, river-rafting for beginners, a boat cruise on the Sarapiqui, horseback tours, and the Center for Neotropical Studies. We recommend you visit Poás Volcano National Park either the first or second morning depending on your next destination. If you are heading back to San Jose we recommend you visit Poás on the morning you leave. If you are proceeding to Arenal after your stay at Peace Lodge, we recommend you visit Poás on the first morning since Arenal is in the opposite direction. Also, on the way to Arenal you can visit the Center for Neotropical Studies, Caña Negro Wildlife Refuge or take a boat cruise on the Sarapiqui River to break up the trip.

The owners of Peace Lodge recommend a stay of two to four nights. There is a lot to see at Waterfall Gardens and guests who have only reserved one night often wish they had more time to experience it all. On the other hand there is a limit to activities in the immediate area and there are so many other wonderful areas of Costa Rica that the owners feel that their guests would be better served by not spending more than four nights at Peace Lodge which also allows others to enjoy the very limited number of rooms.
