WHAT THE GUIDEBOOKS SAY

Fodor’s Costa Rica 2001

"This expansive, ranch-style complex in Chilamate stands at the edge of its own two square km private reserve of tropical rainforest. Built on stilts over the Río Sarapiquí, the lodge caters primarily to natural-history tours. The buildings have wide verandas strung with hammocks...room prices include all meals."

The Rough Guide Costa Rica
Selva Verde Lodge is "one of the premier rainforest lodges in Costa Rica, if not the Americas..."


COSTA RICA EXPEDITIONS DESCRIPTION

Located on the Sarapiquí River near the village of Chilamate in northeast Costa Rica, this hotel offers deluxe accommodations on 500 private acres of lowland tropical rainforest. Twelve lodges built off the ground, offer 40 light and airy double rooms with private baths, ceiling fans and secluded wooden balconies with hammocks. There are also five bungalows, each able to accommodate a family of four. The rooms are linked to the dining and receptions areas by thatch-covered walkways. Typical Costa Rican cuisine is served buffet style and guides are available for forest hikes. Warm climate.


FROM THE HOTEL'S WEB SITE
Founded in 1985, Selva Verde Lodge is located in the lush lowlands of northeastern Costa Rica on a very large, private tract of virgin tropical rainforest and rich second-growth habitats. It is adjacent to Braulio Carrillo National Park and the Organization for Tropical Studies' field station, La Selva.

While at Selva Verde, the visitor may schedule an array of activities suited to every interest and ability, from relaxing in a hammock and absorbing the wonder of the forest, to rafting on the Sarapiquí, or hiking Selva Verde's rainforest trails with a resident naturalist.

Delicious meals featuring the local cuisine are served by gracious, native Costa Ricans. An open and spacious dining room near the river harmonizes well with the jungle ambience. The resident managers, fluent in English and Spanish, are attentive to the visitors' needs.

Selva Verde is a rainforest lodge which is dedicated to educating its guests on the wonders and natural beauty of Costa Rica's unique and fragile tropical rainforest. Beyond its roughly 500 acres of preserved rainforest, the lodge boasts a resident naturalist, local guides and an ever-expanding reference library.

The Lodge provides ample accommodations with 45 double rooms with private baths and showers and five quadruple rooms with shared facilities. The rooms are well maintained and open into large, spacious, wooden balconies.
