Secret Paradise!
Juan and his wife were excellent hosts at their 4 unit bed and breakfast. They were very accommodating to our late arrival and helpful with arranging a great experience with a boat tour with Belleza Terreba mangrove tour. They offer a fresh breakfast and coffee, and were very helpful about providing recourses for other local eats for the other meals. They property is quiet, and it was amazing to wake up and fall asleep to the rushing river, birds and grasshoppers chirps, and midnight rains. The private porch overlooking the river and jungle was right outside our doors, and made for a beautiful and relaxing experience. I loved the layout of our cabin and aspire to own my own B and B like this one day!

Our stay in Yaba Chigui Lodge was most delightful. The property is very well maintained and the design is unique with huge glass windows. The rooms are facing the jungle. Waking up in the morning we listened to the noises and even saw two monkeys. The innkeepers Juan and Ana were extremely helpful and friendly. We would come again in an instant!

We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon in Costa Rica and we loved it. The owners are so kind and went out of their way to make our last night in Costa Rica special which we really appreciated. I would highly recommend this place! You feel like your are in nature and it is wonderful. We also had the chance to eat at Citrus nearby which was our favourite dining experience while in Costa Rica. Thank you for an excellent stay!
