Cloud Forest Lodge is a charming and secluded hillside retreat set in extensive, verdant grounds in the mountains of Monteverde, northern Costa Rica. Located approximately three hours from the capital of San Jose, this simple, comfortable eco-lodge sits within 72 acres of primary and secondary forest which is home to diverse wildlife and over 180 species of birds including beautiful humming birds and the indigenous motmot. Boasting panoramic views from its mountainside setting, the property offers numerous hiking trails from its doorstep along with a thrilling canopy zipline tour on site. It is ideally located just ten minutes from the famed Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, renowned for its spectacular biodiversity which includes over 3,000 plant and animal species. Cloud Forest Lodge will appeal to nature lovers seeking a rustic and peaceful retreat, well off the beaten track and immersed in wildlife.

The main lodge features a cosy, communal lounge and television room along with a bar and restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and an a la carte dinner menu comprising a choice of Costa Rican or international cuisine. An adjoining terrace offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and is a great spot for watching the sunset.

There are 20 spacious, wooden chalet-style rooms. Simply and comfortably furnished, each has a single or double beds, a seating area with a sofa, writing table and chairs, a coffee maker, and an ensuite bathroom. Outside is a private patio with seating and wonderful forest views.

Children of all ages are extremely welcome. A number of triple and family rooms are available, and reductions are offered for children under 12 years of age when sharing with adults. Given the lodge’s rural location, parents are reminded to keep their children under constant adult supervision.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
