Get ready for quetzals, misty hikes through lush cloud forests, edible plant walking tours, and man oh man. Daisy's cooking is the stuff of legends.

Welcome to Las Vueltas Lodge—all of the relaxation, none of the bug bites.

We're 9,000+ feet above sea level and it gets chilly here.

Itchy, scratchy, bitey things don't like that.

But that's good news for you.

Because what we have here instead? Miles of groomed hiking trails to get your nature on. Rare and exotic birds for the bird nerd in your family (looking at you, Dad). Beautiful viewpoints for meditating, reading . . . or smooching.

And stargazers? A clear night up here is, quite literally, heaven.

At Las Vueltas, you’ll find more than a few exotic birds to add to your bird list (if I say “Queztal” and your heart begins to beat a little faster, book your stay already!) And botanists go apeshit here. Tropical highlands, paramo, cloud forest, rain forest. We’ve got microclimates up the wazzu.

More of a bookworm? How would you like to tuck your pretty little self somewhere in our ancient forest and finally finish Anna Karenina? Anna not your cup of tea? Take a gander through our own library.

And we’ve got hiking trips and trails for every age and fitness level. Take an easy hour-long stroll through the forest or spend a week hiking from one side of Costa Rica to the other, with us as your guide-- navigating ancient indigenous trails and bushwhacking new ones.
