Perched atop a mountain within La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park, the 4-star Peace Lodge offers nature lovers exclusive access to rarely seen species deep in the tropical jungle. Not only do rooms have hot tubs on each balcony with rainforest views, guests also get complimentary access to the nature park before and after the normal opening hours.

Guest rooms are a harmony of wood, stone and tropical hues. Each includes a stone fireplace, waterfall shower and the aforementioned balcony, with hammocks and views of La Paz River Valley and nearby Poás Volcano. Hand-crafted wood canopy beds and stained glass accents make for a charming place to lay your head.

In the morning, breakfast can be taken in your suite or on the patio. Dinner is an upscale affair at the guests-only Colibries Restaurant, or head to Big Trout Bar for casual dining. Each afternoon, guests are invited to the bar to watch the sun set and enjoy a la carte tapas and freshly made fruit drinks lakeside.

The resort was recently named as one of the Travel Channel’s "honeymoon hotspots." Adventure-seekers will also be kept busy with hiking and biking trails on site, bird watching and guided tours as well as zip-lining, rafting and kayaking nearby. The park, nominated as one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of Costa Rica," according to La Nacion (the country’s largest newspaper), features Costa Rica’s largest butterfly sanctuary as well as a trout-filled lake, wildcat exhibit and countless jungle creatures.
