From the Airport Area or San José going through Alajuela take the Panamerican Highway towards the International Airport and take the Alajuela exit. Continue straight on this road for 12 miles following the signs for Poás Volcano. At the dead end three way intersection take a right. Proceed to the town of Poasito and make another right at the intersection where it says Heredia, Vara Blanca, Sarapiquí. Make a left at the gas station at Vara Blanca and proceed for 3 miles. Waterfall Gardens is on the left.


Welcome to the Peace lodge. The ultimate awakening of your senses. Here every magical sight, wondrous smell and sensual touch create irreplaceable memories of a journey you wish to take again and again.

Each and every room boasts a Jacuzzi tub and stone fireplace along with showers that transform into waterfalls with the turn of a knob. From the handcrafted canopy beds and love seats to the original stained glass and illustrated artwork you will understand the time and care put into the details of each accommodation. To insure your enjoyment of the cool mountain weather and view of the Poás Volcano, we built oversize balconies complete with rocking chairs, hammocks and custom Jacuzzi tubs. The experience continues with your choice of aromatherapy products and our selection of fine quality linens and robes.

All guests are welcome to enjoy the park before it opens and after it closes, the optimal bird and wildlife viewing times. Private walking tours are available, but we suggest booking these at the same time you reserve your room.

Before the hotel’s reception is completed, guests will be checking in at the Waterfall Gardens welcome center. Our upstairs dining area will serve as your private dining room, unless room service is preferred.

We recommend a three-night stay for guests arriving directly from the airport. You will wake up in the rainforest to the sound of waterfalls rather than the city noise of San José. The drive from the airport is less than one hour and very scenic.

We offer four diverse day tours for guests of the Peace Lodge including Sarapiqui Canopy Adventure, Rafting on the Sarapiqui, Poás Volcano and Doka Estate Coffee Tour and our Arenal Tour to Tabacón Springs.
