We offer just four bungalows merging with the forest because we believe in the charm of the quaint and the small. We believe in warmth. Our greatest fullfilment is that the lodge as a whole encourages contemplation and spiritual delight. It induces tranquility and solace, meditation and relaxation.

Yabá Chiguí Lodge also opens the gate to pristine beaches, lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and meandering mangroves.

Go whale watching early in the morning, dare to do some ziplining, or juts re-energize with a night massage. Be amazed by the nearly flawless pre-Columbian stone spheres. Immerse yourself in the mysteries of the mangroves.

There is also scuba diving, kayaking, horseback riding, stand-up paddle, hiking and bird watching, among other attractions. Different possibilities of volunteering could fit your aspirations as well.

Get captivated by the tranquility and the ‘bio-rhythm’ of Ojochal, today they augment the appeal of this little village with small hotels, exotic restaurants and sweet-scented bakeries.

Indulge yourselves in the immaculate scenery of nearby Playa Ventanas or Playa Piñuela. Admire the estuary of the biggest river in Costa Rica, the Térraba river, the wetlands and the sea.

Having a vehicle is necessary to explore the vast variety of attractions and dining options, best if it is 4x4 but not mandatory.

Home. There is not one thing I can honestly say I 'disliked' about this place. Juan and Ana are like family. They are so kind and gracious. Willing to help you plan your day and give you all the best tips; whether you're looking for something more 'touristy' or to be more immersed in the culture, they are the tour guides you would want. Every single recommendation was spot on, from the food to the activities in the area. The food. Oh my gosh, the food! So many wonderful places. Depending on what you are looking for, just ask, you will not be disappointed which ever direction they steer you. The breakfast that was included every day was probably my favorite. Home cooked, authentic. Those morning times were so nice. Nice to start planning the day. Juan always made us extra coffee, we could not get enough of those Costa Rican beans!!! That was also the time we would go over what we did the day before with Ana... she was always genuinely excited to hear about our adventures. Meeting Juan and Ana was the best thing we did on our trip. We even ran in to them "out on the town" and we were greeted with warm hugs and smiles. Again they were curious to hear how the rest of our trip was going even though we had changed locations. We hope to go back for a visit. This is a place we will never forget and that is mostly in part to the people that were a part of it. THANK YOU!!!

We envisaged Yabá Chiguí Lodge while contemporaries planned for repose. Our idea was to enjoy an active retirement, with three main objectives to pursue: To be an original lodging alternative in an un-traditional destination, to be an example of environmental sustainability and to contribute to the sociocultural development of the region.

Having left behind our professional careers in science and journalism and the years we served as Costa Ricans diplomats in England, Singapore and India, we worked hard to make a reality our retirement project of running a small B&B near the sea and the forest. In doing so we are fulfilling one of our most beloved interests: commitment with nature. And we keep moving ahead!
