We are a B&B that believes in the charm of the quaint and the small. We believe in warmth, details and personalized service. Nested in the still undiscovered and exotic South Pacific region of Costa Rica, Yabá Chiguí Lodge opens the gate to pristine beaches, lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and meandering mangroves.
The lodge has been designed by architects specialized in Contemporary Tropical Architecture, who focus on low impact projects and proven concepts of sustainability. Therefore, each detail has been thought out to respond to such concepts.
Each bungalow is built on stilts; the rooftops are rhomboid in shape, high, slanted and with ample eaves. On the upper part of the walls, screens ease natural ventilation and also allow the sounds of the surroundings to come inside, day and night (Ex. the running stream, the rainforest animals, the rainfall and thunder, and much more). Ventilation is aided with a ceiling fan and a dehumidifier. We can also facilitate extra fans upon request. Hence, in accordance to our sustainable practices, bungalows do not have air-conditioning.
Maximizing the use of natural lighting is also a key practice. The ample glass walls and doors have been designed to efficiently bring natural light into the bungalow, but at the same time, they provide the sensation that you are outside close to nature. To achieve this goal but still give privacy, we have set up natural (plants) and artificial barriers too (blinds, shower curtains, frosted glass).
Daily fresh breakfast is included in the rate. Complimentary in-room coffee and tea.
