Hotel in Puerto Viejo, Limón, Costa Rica

An eco-hotel at one with nature

The Hotel Shawandha Ecolodge provides eco-friendly, peaceful and relaxing accommodation in the heart of southern Costa Rica's Caribbean coast in Puerto Viejo, Limón. It's located just 150 metres from Playa Chiquita, an unspoilt white sand beach lapped by crystal-clear waters and only accessible by a private walkway. With fourteen fantastic chalets and six incredible tepees nestled among the tropical forest, two swimming pools (one with waterfalls, located in a lush tropical garden), our hotel is famed for its peacefulness, its hospitality and its biodiversity. We take care of every detail to ensure that your stay in Puerto Viejo is a truly unforgettable experience.

Discover the essence of Puerto Viejo and its most authentic environment

The hotel is located in a five-acre stretch of forest, preserving its own wildlife and ecosystems, with one hundred species of birds, more than two hundred types of flora and a gigantic ceiba (or kapok) tree that create a truly privileged environment. Here you can enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences, adventure sports and a whole host of activities focused on discovering and learning about life within the tropical forest, always with a personalised service attending to all your needs and questions. Founded in 1993, Shawandha Ecolodge combines hardwoods, bamboo and palm, blending perfectly in with Costa Rican nature. The property is designed following the principles of sustainable architecture, so that guests can enjoy the environment and its biodiversity. Meanwhile, Playa Chiquita is an active member of the Blue Flag Programme, which works towards the sustainable development of Costa Rica's beaches. Shawandha Ecolodge is located just four hours from San José and six kilometres from Puerto Viejo.

Amazing lodge

"The lodge was amazing and saw lots of animals in the grounds. We saw sloths most days and were woken every morning by the howler monkeys, amazing. The breakfast was tea/coffee juice, fresh fruit, toast and eggs, The lodge is near the jaguar rescue centre, the Aru macaw centre lots of beaches, Please be careful of the Tuk Tuk driver 666150 we agreed a price for 3 stop trip we went of it many times he did 2 but wanted extra money for the last stop, the only disappointing part of this amazing holiday."

Very tropical in its atmosphere

"A really lovely traditional hotel. All the accommodation is in individual thatched cottages which are dotted the dense tropical foliage. Although the climate is hot, the rooms are adequately cooled by central ceiling fans, both quiet and very effective. Not something to put you of. There is a very nice bar, open to the attractive tropical planting. The cocktails are tops and the restaurant food very good indeed. A very lazy feel to the whole place. The staff are all excellent and ready to converse with their visitors. An early start on our final day resulted in the kitchen manager laying out some fruit and drink for us to start the day. Much appreciated."
